Equip the Church to be the redemptive community that Christ envisions

We believe that the Church was purposed to serve as the redemptive community wherein true recovery takes place. When functioning as intended, the Church should be the greatest treatment center on earth. Whether you're interested in strengthening your current recovery ministry or creating and implementing one for the first time, GRN offers training and personal consultation to equip your church, ministry, organization, or counseling group to serve individuals in need. The services we offer are listed below. If you have a question or are looking for training or resources beyond what is listed, please message us by filling out the contact form below.
