North West "Hope Lives" Recovery Ministry is a Christian Ministry to people in recovery. We seek to assist with the Life Issues and Challenges of recovery through Support of the Recovery Community, Developing Christ-Centered Relationships, and Healthy Social Interaction.
Our Plan, by God's Grace and Guidance, is to accomplish this by:
-Identifying and developing partnerships with effective recovery programs
-Providing services to those programs, such as: Spiritual Mentoring, Bible Classes, Social Skills classes, Client Referrals
-Assisting with Recovery Program's Client Needs, such as: Physical Needs, Transportation Needs, and making NorthWest facilities available for their organizations' meetings,
-Encouraging a church atmosphere of genuine loving acceptance and welcome
-Coordinating trained, skilled and qualified volunteers with appropriate boundaries
-Organizing recovery-friendly church classes, assemblies, and social activities.
Our steering committee members are: Kim Jarrell, Larry Stark, Shane Sullivan, Julius Lundy, John Flint, Linda Hartman, Gregory Goodin, Al Young.
Interested? Our "Hope Lives" class meets on Sundays at 9:45 am in the Fellowship Hall at NorthWest Church of Christ. Guests are always welcome in our class.
Currently we have partnerships with one recovery program and are serving them weekly. We have placed thirty-five people in programs and assisted with their physical needs. We now hold weekly social skills/spiritual recovery classes, assist with clients transportation needs, contribute regularly to the operations of the homes, provide a recovery-friendly church class and transportation for those client wishing to attend, and have appropriate substance-free social events. We strive to make additional contacts and relationships within the recovery community to better serve this population.
