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 re:generation 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.
What does re:generation 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.
Is childcare available?
Some locations do provide childcare for leaders and participants. Contact your local re:generation group for more information. Find a re:generation location near you.
