CPR's Mission

CPR’s mission is to help pastors find a safe haven for experiencing the healing power of Jesus Christ for the hurts, habits, and hang-ups of the past, present, and future. For pastors who are ready to take the journey through the 12 Steps of Celebrate Recovery, our ultimate goal is to get you connected with other like-hearted pastors in your area or with an online group meeting.

What is CR


Celebrate Recovery is a biblical and balanced program that helps us overcome our hurts, hang-ups, and habits. It is based on the actual words of Jesus rather than psychological theory. 25 years ago, Saddleback Church launched Celebrate Recovery with 43 people. It was designed as a program to help those struggling with hurts, habits and hang-ups by showing them the loving power of Jesus Christ through a recovery process. Celebrate Recovery has helped more than 17000 people at Saddleback, attracting over 70% of its members from outside the church. Eighty-five percent of the people who go through the program stay with the church and nearly half serve as church volunteers. Celebrate Recovery is now in over 29,000 churches worldwide! www.celebraterecovery.com
