Got any emotionally sick people in your church? Isaiah 61 tells us that Jesus came to, “set captives free.” Spiritual captives deserve a gospel-centered recovery opportunity.
The phrase gospel-centered recovery doesn’t come up as often as it should. After all, it is the power of the gospel the heals all, restores all, and redeems all.
It is for this reason that LifeWay partnered with Matt Chandler and created an amazing resource called, STEPS: Gospel-Centered Recovery.
This 13-session discipleship experience takes people to the root of sin and suffering in order to embrace the freedom found only in Christ’s redemption. Potentially life-changing experiences are brought about by in-depth Bible study, thorough personal assessments, insightful teaching videos, and honest interactions with a group leader and mentor.
Honed over years of implementation at The Village Church’s campuses in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, Steps formed the foundation of the church’s ongoing recovery ministry. It continues to be one of the most fruitful discipleship courses offered throughout the calendar year.
In these 13 sessions, Matt Chandler and Michael Snetzer invite other pastors from The Village Church to teach each of the 12 steps. Building on the incomplete truths of traditional recovery programs, Steps elevates the redeemed truths to be seen through the light of Scripture and a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Theologically rich and steeped in the wisdom of practical biblical counseling, Steps is more than a Bible study; it’s a discipleship tool and the foundation for gospel-centered recovery.
