Into the Neighborhood (ITN)
WHAT: Recovery House Ministry (“RHM”)
Description: RHM is small group of individuals from GBC (Mike Brumagin, Doug Hall & Keith Morauske) that has partnered with a local recovery house through Into the Neighborhood Ministry. More specifically, there are over dozen recovery houses throughout Richmond, each with roughly 10-12 “residents” in various stages of addiction recovery. These houses are affiliated with the True Recovery Program.
Into the Neighborhood is a community-based ministry program that strives to connect local church groups with each recovery house. We (the GBC Recovery House Ministry) have been partnered with the Laurel Pines Recovery House for almost two-years. We visit the house once a week, currently every Thursday evening, to provide dinner, fellowship, and Bible learning. We have also partnered with the GBC Food Pantry to consistently deliver essential food items to the house.
Where: At the recovery house, weekly, at 9740 Laurel Pine Dr. (Staples Mill & Hungary Rd.)
Who: This is open to any men who would like to join our group. We are down to just three of us, and we need a couple more volunteers to join our ministry to ensure weekly coverage. Women may also participate but would need to be connected with the Into the Neighborhood Ministry to get connected to a female recovery house group. This is also open to any men or women small groups who would like to launch another RHM with another house.
