The Celebrate Recovery Trademark Statement

The DNA of Celebrate Recovery


The Value of using the Celebrate Recovery name

Celebrate Recovery desires to be a network of like-minded, Bible-based, Christ-centred recovery ministries. This growing network crosses denominational and cultural boundaries to help hurting people in our churches and communities.

There are many benefits of using the Celebrate Recovery name. Here are just a few:

1. Connection

Your ministry is part of an international movement to bring Christ-centred, Bible-based recovery to the world. As a genuine Celebrate Recovery ministry, you join a network of thousands of other local Celebrate Recovery ministries reaching people for Christ. At the same time, you are helping others break free from their hurts, hang-ups, and habits.

2. Support

Your ministry has the support and partnership of the Celebrate Recovery National Team, as well as assistance from your Regional Directors and State Reps. These individuals work to help your ministry succeed.

3. Resources

Your ministry has access to the materials and resources from Saddleback Church that are proven and invaluable tools in recovery.

4. Validation

Your ministry is validated in your church and community by being associated with Celebrate Recovery.

5. Promotion

Any Celebrate Recovery ministry that is adhering to the DNA of an authentic Celebrate Recovery is listed with the other Celebrate Recovery programs on the official Celebrate Recovery website.

It is our desire for each local Celebrate Recovery ministry to have a clear and consistent character that identifies it as a genuine part of the Celebrate Recovery movement. At the same time, each ministry maintains its own creative distinctions of its local ministry and church.

Our desire is that no matter where a Newcomer attends a Celebrate Recovery meeting, they will experience the same quality content and program to find God’s healing from their hurts, hang-ups, and habits.
