MN Adult and Teen Challenge Choir Shares Recovery Stories with Community
We hit the base with the choir during rehearsals, but now they’ve reached the finish line.
Treatment Director Becky Revier says, “I think it’s critical that the men in our program know that they have a church that loves and supports them, a place they can go to after graduation.
The new choir director, Clinton Strother, was proud to bring their stories to church that meant so much to him. He says, “This is my home church, so I was super excited that we were able to do the Christmas program here. And it was just a blessing, the whole experience was just a blessing. “
Becky was also watching the team sing along and share a story about recovery. She says: “It was just an amazing experience, I loved watching the men sing, sharing their personal stories, incredibly proud of them for their vulnerability in front of a congregation.”
Now more than ever, there is a need to help those struggling with addiction. Revier says, “So many people can wrestle this time of year. You know the overdoses are at an all time high, so seeing 40 men who are actively recovering share their stories, what a beautiful message of hope this time of year in particular. “
Clinton says, “The guys are working really hard to make this all happen and it is such a blessing that we have been successful by the grace of God. We don’t do anything alone. We don’t do it alone and we just encourage men to go by the grace of God. “
