We all experience brokenness in life.
At re:generation, we believe that anyone can experience new life and freedom by working through steps of healing given to us by God through the Bible. All who are tired, broken or hurting are invited to come find recovery in Jesus Christ.
Re:generation is 12-step discipleship through recovery. By working through these biblical steps within an authentic community, people have found healing from many personal struggles. (100 Common Struggles).
We know that not everyone who comes to re:generation will enter understanding the Bible or believing in the God of the Bible. Re:generation is a safe place for anyone to honestly process questions and doubts. Our prayer is that you will find the same peace that we have found.
Do you want to know more?
Join a Groundwork Group. Groundwork is an important beginning to your recovery journey. For 6 weeks or so you will work through daily lessons, meeting weekly with your group. The lessons are short and meant to give you an opportunity to connect with God and work on your issues. We are confident that as you seek God, apply his word to your life and develop relationships with others, you will find healing, peace, joy and freedom.
God loves you. He wants to heal you and has a plan for you. All are welcome.

EXPERIENCING DIFFICULTIES? DO YOU NEED A STEPHEN MINISTER?
One way God fulfills his promise of his comforting presence is by providing Stephen Ministers to walk along side those going through challenges such as job loss, illness, divorce, grief or other difficulty. Stephen Ministers (paired men to men or women to women) provide a caring, supportive, non-judgmental, confidential relationship that enables care receivers to share their burdens. Stephen Ministry brings the light of Christ into the darkness of people’s lives.
