Battling against the scourge of heroin and opiate addiction, as well as other life's hurts that are bringing Northern KY to its collective knees, Pastor Steve Cope and member Steve Volter, both natives of Dayton, KY at Heart of Worship Church in Highland Heights are doing their absolute best to give hope and healing to those in need. I am both happy and proud to call these men my friends and I hope the following information will guide all those in search of help and hope.
Celebrate Recovery is a biblical and balanced program that helps people overcome their hurts, hang-ups, and habits. It is based on the actual words of Jesus rather than psychological theory. 25 years ago, Saddleback Church launched Celebrate Recovery with 43 people. It was designed as a program to help those struggling with hurts, habits and hang-ups by showing them the loving power of Jesus Christ through a recovery process. Celebrate Recovery has helped more than 17,000 people at Saddleback, attracting over 70% of its members from outside the church. Eighty-five percent of the people who go through the program stay with the church and nearly half serve as church volunteers. Celebrate Recovery is now in over 29,000 churches worldwide!
