How does re:generation work?
Re:generation is a biblical 12-step process structured within the context of small groups. Your first couple of months will be spent in either a newcomers group (first week) or a groundwork group. Once you have completed the groundwork curriculum, demonstrated a willingness to participate and decided that you want to move forward, you will be placed into a step-group to go through the 12 steps. Step-groups have a set number of participants and leaders. Once a step-group is launched, no new members will be added. For the next 8 to 10 months you will progress through the steps using daily curriculum along with other step-group members.
How long does it take?
The entire re:generation process takes about a year; newcomers and groundwork groups take about 2 months, step-groups take 8 to 10 months. The groundwork curriculum lessons take about 10 minutes per day while step-group curriculum takes about 30 minutes per day. 30 minutes a day with God for one year working on your recovery will change your life.
How much does it cost?
There is no charge to attend re:generation. Once you decide to start the curriculum, you will need to purchase books at different stages of the ministry (about every six weeks). There are a total of six books. Costs can vary slightly at locations. Most of the books run between $10-$15, except for the Inventory Workbook which accompanies Step 4-6 and costs about half the price of the other books. Total cost is between $55-$75 for a year of curriculum with costs spread out through the year.
What is the flow of a re:generation meeting?
Re:generation meetings may vary depending on the location. However, many groups will begin the meeting with all leaders and participants gathered together during the first 45 minutes to worship and hear a testimony or teaching. The large gathering will then break into smaller groups for the remainder of the time: newcomers groups, groundwork groups and step-groups all meet separately for the next hour and 15 minutes. All together, the gathering lasts about 2 hours.
Is childcare available?
Some locations do provide childcare for leaders and participants. Contact your local re:generation group for more information. To find a re:generation location near you, click HERE.
Can I come if I don't have a chemical addiction?
Yes! Re:generation is for everyone. God's steps of healing can free you from any addiction, struggle or hurt. Many people come in order to discover the source of their pain. You will always be welcome regardless of the struggle.
