RR Leadership Team
I battled drug addiction and alcoholism, among other things, for 26 years constantly ending up in jails and institutions until I met Jesus, and my life was completely transformed. I have a calling on my life to share the gospel and my story to help others find their identity in Christ and ultimately see that just like I found out, Jesus is the answer.
WOMENS MINISTY LEADER
I suffered alcohol and drug addiction for 16 years. During that time I met and married Ken. I got sober and surrendered my life to Jesus in the spring of 2015. Life didn't instantly become perfect. I was faced with serious family issues. But I knew that Jesus had made me a new person. He has restored my life, and because of Him, I can be a good mom, a good wife, and a help to others.
Director of Church Planting
I have served in the C&MA for 28 years, 16 in local church context and 12 years as the director for strategic advancement in the Central district. In this role I’ve had the incredible privilege of partnering with a vast diversity of church planting efforts, (urban, suburban, rural, Appalachian, ethic, house churches, etc.). I’ve also had the thrill of studying church planting strategies and movements on four continents, partnering on the National Church Planting Team for the C&MA, starting the Mid-West Church Planting Center and working with multiple denominations in church planting training. I’m grateful to be part of the Really Recovered leadership team and will be hitting the gym and getting my first tattoo shortly.
I started doing drugs when I was young - heroin, meth, crack...basically whatever. Finally, I "white knuckled" sobriety for 10 months. I was sober but I was miserable and empty inside. In October of 2016 I made a total surrender to Jesus and was set free. I know Jesus wants to use me to help reach other lost and broken addicts. "White Knuckle no more son!"
I was raised in a Christian home but never really had a relationship with Jesus. As I got older I fell further away from Christ. I got married and we struggled as a married couple. We started going to church where we met Ken and Megan started going to Really Recovered meetings. I finally surrendered my life to Jesus. I am now becoming the husband and dad that Jesus has called me to be. I have only Jesus to thank for everything in my life!
SMH House Manager
I struggled with porn, alcohol and Ddugs since junior high school. I grew up in "church" but never knew what it meant to surrender to JESUS until I came to Really Recovered. Soon after I began attending, JESUS showed up to me in a vision and told me that if I stayed at Really Recovered that HE would change the world through me and my wife. It was that day that I fully surrendered and let JESUS give me a new life. #ButJESUS!
I lived a life knowing about Jesus but not actually knowing who HE was. At age 16 i began suffering with depression, anger, anxiety, & alcoholism. I smoked weed and slept around trying to find my identity in worldly things, which obviously didn’t work out. At the age of 21 I was on the brink of getting a divorce, so my husband and I (as a last resort) started going to Really Recovered. We gave our lives to Christ and got baptized. It’s amazing to chase Jesus with my husband and raise our children in a Christ filled home.
