Celebrate Recovery

The purpose of Asbury’s Celebrate Recovery ministry is to fellowship and celebrate God's healing power in our lives through the "Eight Recovery Principles” and “Christ-centered 12-Steps” based on the Beatitudes. Weekly meetings include a fellowship dinner, large and small groups, ending with dessert and fellowship. This is a powerful and exciting recovery ministry for anyone humble enough to admit to the effect of sin on his or her life.

Stephen Ministers

Stephen Ministers are members who have been trained to provide a listening ear and a helping presence for people looking for extra support while they walk through a rough season of life. The Stephen Minister meets one-on-one and keeps all sharing strictly confidential. No fees are charged for the services. If you are facing a difficult time, a Stephen Minister may be an important part of your support system. Leave a confidential message at 918.392.1183.
