Operation Integrity 2016 Year-End Update
With deep appreciation for your prayers and support in 2016, I present our year-end update.
· Operation Integrity continues to serve 3 churches in CA while supporting Christ-centered recovery efforts in 8 States with new starts in Austin TX & Albuquerque NM.
· OI continues to mentor private recovery meetings across the U.S. and beyond – with groups at a seminary in the UK and two home fellowships in Australia, and our books OUR JOURNEY HOME & WHEN LOST MEN COME HOME, NOT FOR MEN ONLY are now being used in Johannesburg South Africa.
· We continue providing affordable recovery programs through our 45 Day Intensive & 90 Day Transformation.
· I continue to work personally with Pastors and Clergy in Ohio, North Carolina, Oklahoma, California, Michigan, Wisconsin, Colorado, Texas and Canada, The United Kingdom, Greece and Australia.
· 3700+ people read Operation Integrity Weekly.
· Operation Integrity wrote a book used in-house by a southern California mental health organization.
· Operation Integrity wrote content for an 8-part video series produced by a national addiction treatment program.
2017 brings a new emphasis to our work — blending a Christ-centered message with proven clinical tools and the proven effectiveness of 12–Step communities. It looks like this:
Operation Integrity collects essential information from Christ-teaching, well-proven clinical & professional understanding and the essential wisdom of 12 Step teaching and community.
Operation Integrity formats this blended information to offering it to help guide and inspire Christian communities better understand addicted people within their community, assist clinical professionals do what they cannot otherwise do (community and spiritual development) and helping 12 Step participants better integrate their 12 Step addiction recovery effort with a Christ-centered perspective.
The result is an integrated process-driven program that provides Education, Community, Combined 12-Step and counseling/therapy (The Inner Journey) — all leading to Christ-centered emotional and spiritual health. This work will be presented through speaking and writing, and woven into our fellowship group program, and encouraged as an essential recovery experience for individuals.
The result will look like this.
Three primary applications of education, community, the inner journey, all leading to sustainable spiritual formation.
1. Communications, Writing and Public presentation information/inspiration relevant to addiction recovery
2. Coaching/mentoring recovery fellowships (recovery groups and fellowships) using OI literature
3. Promote OI process for individuals - 12 Step and discipleship based
