International Christian Recovery Coalition
Its 2011 Focus
We recommend that those motivated to join, participate in, and help disseminate the new Christian Recovery movement should first take a look at two of our websites which lay out the mission statement and projects underway.
The first website is International Christian Recovery Coalition. It lists our mission which is to disseminate worldwide the facts about the Christian origins, history, founding, original program, astonishing successes, and later changes in the Akron A.A. Christian Fellowship founded in 1935. We believe it very clear that God, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Bible played a dominant role in the beginnings of today’s recovery movement. This began in the 1800’s with the seldom-mentioned, but widely recognized successes of five Christian groups and leaders in helping drunks to get well by turning to God for help. These were the Evangelists like Dwight Moody and many others. They included the Gospel Rescue Missions, the lay workers of the Young Men’s Christian Association, the Salvation Army, and the Young People’s Society of Christian Endeavor. Yet you’ll hardly find a person today that even knows what those groups did.
The International Christian Recovery Coalition website tells you several things: (1) Who the leaders of the Coalition are. (2) Who the many and growing number of participants are. (3) The details about the Coalition. (4) The new Christian Recovery Resource Centers Worldwide project. (5) And some other service still in progress. Check the short url: http://goo.gl/qP2pw.
You may also just google International Christian Recovery Coalition or its longer Url:
The second web page is the Christian Recovery Resource Centers – Worldwide page. The short url is http://bit.ly/erD3tw. You may find it on the navigation bar of its sponsor, the International Christian Recovery Coalition. And you may simply google Christian Recovery Resource Centers and find the site. This is a project just launched on January 1, 2011. It responded to an increasing number of calls to me personally from individuals all over the world. Some came by phone. Some by email. And some even through Facebook. And I personally answer all courteous email letters and phone calls. But the strife was worldwide. Mothers, sisters, uncles, wives, husbands, grandparents, friends, employers, and others called to ask where their loved ones could find Christian help. Where could they go, the asked. Who should they contact? What facilities existed on Maui? Who could help the afflicted person right now! And we established the new program the first of this year. Within three days, three major treatment and/or bridge programs had signed up and already helped. Two more are in the wings on Maui and on Oahu. And many others have expressed a desire to help and participate. This is therefore the main focus on the International Christian Recovery Coalition—to establish Christian Recovery Resource Centers Worldwide—and do it now!
You can keep in touch with our progress through my Facebook, twitter, and blog pages. And all are easily and quickly accessed through the symbols on my main website: www.dickb.com.
