“Dick B. Interviews Christian Recovery Leader Bill Boyles”
on the Friday, June 29, episode of
the “Christian Recovery Radio with DickB” Show
By Dick B.
Our guest, Bill Boyles, is a recovered Christian Recovery leader whom I have known and with whom I have worked for many years.
I met Bill when I was doing a series of A.A. Heritage Seminars at the Wilson House (birthplace of A.A. cofounder Bill W.) in East Dorset, Vermont. Bill was present two different years, and it was clear that he was a devoted Christian who saw the importance of early A.A.’s biblical roots in recovery from alcoholism and drugs today.
Since I first met Bill, I have watched him leave an important executive position at a Delaware utility, align himself with Christian leaders and workers in recovery, and work with those who help other alcoholics and addicts get well by turning to God for help.
Bill established a nonprofit ministry that provides Christian treatment for alcoholics and addicts. He helped organize and fund my Second Nationwide Alcoholics Anonymous History Conference in Delaware. Through the years, he has become what he calls himself—the “Book Man.” This means that he has purchased hundreds and hundreds of my A.A. history books, circulated them among his church friends, and passed them out free to newcomers in Delaware. Recently, he flew all the way from Delaware to attend and be a speaker at our International Christian Recovery Conference at Golden Hills Community Church in Brentwood, California.
I’m enthused about this interview which will bring our listeners, my son Ken, and me up to date on the Christian recovery happenings at Won Way Out in Camden Wyoming, Delaware. And Bill will be free to tell us a little about himself, his family, his career, his church, his bouts with alcohol and drugs, his activity in 12 Step work, and his treatment program and other activity today.
Bill will provide the details. But here are some facts to help you identify him and his program. He is William Boyles, Executive Director of Won Way Out Ministries, Inc. It is located at 8345 Westville Road, Camden Wyoming, Delaware. It is a private company, was established in 2005, and is incorporated in Delaware as a Miscellaneous Denomination Church.
And now Bill will tell us about his Christian recovery programs, his family’s participation in the work, the scope of its religious and recovery activities, its status as a Christian organization, its relationship with the community, its outreach, and its plans for the future.
