Nazarene Recovery Network (NRN)

The Nazarene Recovery Network (NRN) provides training and leadership resources to churches who feel called to meet recovery needs in their community and promote personal, relational, and spiritual wellness through faith-based twelve-step programming.

“For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you.”
Romans 12:3

Recovery is for everyone! Our leadership team firmly believes that recovery is sanctification – an ongoing process of ensuring that sin and life’s burdens do not get in the way of a full relationship with God and the Church. We have seen the power of faith-based twelve-step programming and would love to come alongside with your church to help you launch a recovery ministry in your local faith community!

How we can help you and your team:

• Psychoeducation for your leadership team on substance use disorders, mental health, and trauma
• Twelve-step coaching using the Life Recovery curriculum
• Monthly training opportunities
• Networking with other churches for support
• Annual conference via in-person or online access
