Recovered Christian Pastors Helping Coalition on Maui

God keeps opening doors so fast we can hardly keep up with them. Yesterday, Dale Marsh, Recovery Pastor of the Oroville Church of the Nazarene, Serenity Group, in California put us in touch with two wonderful recovered Christian gentlemen who are eager to establish a solid Christian residential recovery home on Maui. It will serve for prison outreach, the homeless, alcoholics and addicts, members of Celebrate Recovery, church members, AAs and NAs, and others who want God's help and are willing diligently to seek Him.

The following two men have just become participants in International Christian Recovery Coalition. www.ChristianRecoveryCoalition.com. And their names and listings are these:

“Pastor Richard DeJacimo, Set Free Christian Fellowship, 77A Kihau Place, Unit A, Haiku, Maui, Hawaii 96708, Phone: 268 3200” Pastor Rick, an Arizona businessman, has been active in contacting those on Maui who may wish to help Christian recovery outreach and resource centers be established in the Islands.

“Kenny Munds, Staff Pastor, Church on the Street (Phoenix); President, Kenny Munds Ministry, 20701 N. Scottsdale Road, Suite 107-260, Scottsdale, Arizona 85255;
Singer and entertainer Kenny travels throughout the U.S. sharing his music and testimony in County jails, State Prisons, churches, camps, rescue missions, recovery programs, and “wherever God opens door of opportunity;” 623 521 5382; kenmunds@yahoo.com; www.kenmunds.com” Ken has immense experience in field and ministry experience in Arizona, California, Georgia, Indiana, Missouri, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, and South Dakota.

This marks a new and highly significant growth and progress concerning Christian Recovery Resources and Outreach in Hawaii. Our first helper was Pastor Ed Gazman of Maui who was doing prison outreach in Maui and distributing Dick B. books there. Next, thanks to the efforts of former Lt. Governor Duke Aiona, we were able--through the funding of benefactors--to send two different sets of free cases of Dick B. history books to each of the fourteen Hawaii correctional institutions wardens and their libraries. Then came our extensive work with Scott Craven in Honolulu who works with Men's Step Study Groups there, providing Step information, A.A. history information, Bible study, and Christian recovery help to alcoholics and addicts. Then came our new partnership with the County of Maui Salvation Army where A/Captain Mark Merritt authorized our use free of an office in Kihei, Hawaii where we maintain the Dick B. and Ken B. Maui Christian Recovery Resource Center.

All this accompanies our growing number of participants in International Christian Recovery Coalition in almost every state and in several other countries; and it accompanies our growing number of Christian Recovery Resource Centers--numbering 27 and growing.

Aloha, Dick B., Executive Director, International Christian Recovery Coalition.
