Came to Believe Recovery at Restoration Church

Discover the Original ‘Why’ and ‘How’ of our Addiction Recovery

“The Steps are like a medicine capsule with 12 ingredients —you take them ALL when you want to get well. How long do you want to stay sick?” Clarence Snyder, one of the first 40 members of A.A.

Experience the Twelve Steps as the A.A. Founders practiced and taught — in a matter of hours! Clarence Snyder and friends reclaimed this process in 1966 when they started weekend retreats. The retreats now number over 35 per year in the world. Early members of AA, such as Dr Bob and Clarence S, took people through the 12 Steps as early in their recovery as possible and in a matter of hours, and that’s what you can experience at this retreat. Clarence’s story is in the first three editions of the Big Book (#11, “The Home Brewmeister”). Using the AA Big Book, the 12 Steps, and the life-changing principles of the Oxford Group, the retreat shows you the way we have recovered from a seemingly hopeless state of mind and body and are now living in freedom from addictions. “…pick up the simple kit of spiritual tools…” as described in the A.A. Big Book, page 25.

This is a private startup retreat.  We have created this weekend’s program especially for the Restoration Church community.  We hope to create a CTBR community that will be able to run their own weekly meetings, and become local leaders.  The first two days we will be presenting the 12 steps as the founders intended: quickly, thoroughly and honestly so that you can begin your journey of freedom in as little time as possible. Sunday will be a half day of workshops to develop each individual to participate in future CTBR meetings and retreats as potential leaders. We will provide information on how to listen to 5th steps, how to lead a meeting, and how to teach the steps at future retreats or one on one.

If you are interested in hosting a Start up Retreat in your area, reach out to us today!


The event is finished.
