Description

Anyone leading a recovery ministry must be a recovering addict with solid sobriety while continuing to work rigorously at the 12 Steps as a model for those being led. Paul said in 1 Corinthians 9:27, “But I buffet my body and make it my slave lest possibly, after I have preached to others, I myself should be disqualified.” The leader must not be above strict accountability, and needs to have a mentor; someone who can help point out blind spots, and keep him or her on the right track in recovery and in relation- ship with God. That mentor, by the way, needs to be a recovering addict also. Otherwise, it’s like a golfer trying to train a football player. You have to have been there to know how to lead another through that landscape.
