RECOVERY MINISTRIES

At North Olmsted Friends Church we value community, Christ-centered conversation, and personal well-being.  Recovery Ministries give us the space to share our hearts with others who are broken and hurting in hopes that we will find a deep sense of God’s wholeness together.  
 
Our Recovery Ministries mission is to provide a genuine community of believers who seek to find healing, restoration, and support through difficult times.  While here on earth, Jesus took a seat at the table and encountered people just as they were.  We encourage you to “come as you are” as you encounter Christ and His healing in this place. 
 
We are all hurting and broken beings, needing to be prayed for and encouraged.  We hope you find that encouragement here.

Pure Victory is a confidential support group for men who are seeking to find freedom from “everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles” because we are called “to run with perseverance the race marked out for us” (Hebrews 12:1 NIV). It is based on a 12-step approach and a resource called Power to Choose by Mike O’Neil. The group leaders are Harry Deal and Jeff Roach, who have two decades of leading this experience. This group meets on Thursdays at 7 pm in Classroom 2.
