Saddleback Hosts Celebrate Recovery Summit 2005

Saddleback is hosting its number one outreach program, Celebrate Recovery, to help thousands overcome their hurts, habits, and hang-ups, Aug. 17-19.

Celebrate Recovery Summit 2005 is a biblically-balanced program that has reached thousands of people in over 3,500 churches in the last 14 years. The program provides ministry leaders an opportunity to develop a strategy to reach those hurting in the community.

With a sell-out crowd this year, the summit will feature guest speakers Dr. John Townsend, Dr. Henry Cloud, Craig Jutila and Megan Hutchinson, who will discuss the seven keys on the Road to Recovery. Other special guests include musical artist The Parachute Band and Sunday Shoes.

Workshops are directed toward those who are interested in starting a Celebrate Recovery ministry and leaders who already have actively running recovery programs. This year's summit will also provide new resources that will help attendants enhance their own Celebrate Recovery group.

Founded by John Baker, Celebrate Recovery has changed over 250,000 hearts as it was birthed to bring the lost and the hurt into the church.

Walk-in registration is still available for those interested in attending the summit. For more information, visit
