What happens at overcomers outreach
Overcomers Outreach support groups are sharing groups, not therapy groups. We attend to share our experience, strength and hope with one another.
There are no trained leaders, only lay people and people in recovery who facilitate the groups. The loving support and genuine caring of members, coupled with daily prayer and scripture readings prepares us to experience total serenity in Christ, no matter what our circumstances may be.
Attendance at other 12 Step groups is encouraged. We are dedicated to the principles of anonymity and confidentiality. Nothing shared in discussions will leave the room in any form. Gossip has no place among us, nor will we share discussions with outside prayer lists. Our common welfare must come first. Leaders are chosen not to govern but to serve.
There is only one authority in our group – Jesus Christ, as He expresses His love among us.
Overcomers Outreach groups use the 12 Steps and the Scriptures. Individuals freely speak about their Higher Power in the person of Jesus Christ. Honest sharing is honoured and encouraged, without cross talk. Meetings are wrapped up with mutual sentence prayers. The group is a close family environment where the truth about each person is admitted and where God’s power can freely heal even some of the most impossible cases.
