Celebrate Recovery came out of Rick Warren’s Church called Saddleback. You may contact his church at 949-581-0548 or visit their website

As a pastor for 25 years, I taught Masterlife in all four churches I pastored. I used it to disciple all new believers. I especially noticed that it really helped people with addictions. They learned from the errors of their past, gained new skills to overcome temptations and addictions, and grew into church leaders in their churches. I would encourage everyone to use Masterlife as a part of their discipleship program especially for those who struggle with addictions or prison/jail ministry. For a reduced price on this material contact Cindi at: 405-942-3000 ext.4326. If you have questions contact Eddie Coast at 405-990-3430 cell.

A good offense is sometimes the best defense. In Oklahoma, we teach Evangelism Explosion as one of our leading prison ministries; the results have been astounding. I have come to understand that many so called Christians have never really come to a true saving knowledge of Christ. By taking an in depth witnessing class, students often come to grasp concepts about salvation that often has escaped their understanding; this is due to the mentoring module that is used.

Once a person has become an authentic Christian; they need to be discipled in basic Christian disciples as found in Masterlife. Often addicts have numerous issues that need to be addressed. We are blessed to have so many great tools that are provided for us. Many of these can be found in the Lifeway Christian store catalogs. You may contact them at: 1-800-233-1123 or visit their website at: I have listed some titles of Biblical Studies that have been extremely helpful through the years. They are: Search for Significance, Making Peace with Your Past, Moving Beyond Your Past, Faithful & Truth: Sexual Integrity in a Fallen World, Recovering From the Losses of Life, & Strength for the Journey: A Biblical Perspective on Discouragement & Depression & Choosing to Forgive. These ministries should be offered to students after they have a clear understanding of their salvation and have handle on basic Christian disciplines. I like these studies because they have homework that forces them to dig into the Word of God for themselves.

Rapha provides many other wonderful bible studies for families. I will list just a few of them: Untangling Relationships, Conquering Eating Disorders, Breaking the Cycle of Hurtful Family Experiences, Conquering Codependency, Codependency, Shelter From the Storm, and the list goes on. As pastor I found these materials to be extremely helpful in discipling Christian families. The ways to contact Rapha is : 1-800-460-4673 or

The Bible says, ” YOU shall know the TRUTH & the TRUTH shall set you free”.
