The Life Recovery Ministry at Prestonwood Baptist Church helps men, women and students recover from emotional, physical, relational and spiritual wounds through the power of Christ. Through classes, small groups and individual discipleship, the Life Recovery Ministry will help people pursue, overtake, and recover a life of peace and purpose.
PURSUE – In order to recover a life of peace, it is necessary to pursue and identify choices that cause chaos and pain. Addictions, afflictions, strongholds and lies must be brought into the light so they can be seen clearly and dealt with appropriately.
OVERTAKE – Once seen clearly, it is necessary to overtake and remove poor choices and agreements
with lies. That is done by filtering each thought through the truth of God’s Word. Discipline, obedience, trust and reliance on the power of the Holy Spirit are the pillars that allow for lies to be removed and truth to be received.
RECOVER – The result of pursuing problems honestly and overtaking them with truth and power
is a life of peace as you recover what was lost.
And David inquired of the LORD, “Shall I pursue, will I overtake them?” And the LORD answered, “Pursue: for you will surely overcome and recover all that was taken from you!” —1 Samuel 30:8
GROUPS play a vital role in Life Recovery. In a group, the participants share their experience, strength and hope about a common life event. Connecting with others who have experienced similar life events will help reduce feelings of isolation, fear and hopelessness. In addition, groups help motivate you to walk in freedom and recover life.
HEALING PRAYER provides an opportunity for you to receive prayer for physical, emotional and spiritual healing. At Prestonwood this prayer comes from teams who have been trained to pray over the sick for Christ’s presence and recovery. This is open to people of all ages and all conditions.
FIRST RESPONDERS are people who have recovered from emotional, relational, physical and spiritual wounds through the power of Christ. They are people who have been comforted by God and are now willing to walk alongside others who are actively going through a similar trial or painful circumstance.
CRISIS CARE provides resources that will assist in finding immediate care for life events that require immediate help (such as drug detox and physical abuse).
XCHANGED LIFE is a spiritual process that delivers hope and support to anyone who seeks a life free from the snares of sin, suffering and pain. It is designed to help you exchange agreement with lies with the trust in the truth of God’s Word. XChanged Life meets Mondays at 6:30 p.m. in The Chapel.
PERSONAL MINISTRY is a concentrated time of prayer and inner healing designed for those in need of additional spiritual, emotional and physical recovery. To schedule an appointment, e-mail email@example.com or call 972-820-5319.
WORKSHOPS allow you to learn new ideas and approaches as you recover the life Christ intended. Training will equip you to apply those new ideas as you bring comfort and healing to others as they recover life. Topics and dates vary throughout the year.

Stronger than Espresso
A Life Recovery Ministry
Tuesdays, 6:00–8:00 p.m.
Stronger than Espresso is a ministry for women who have been abused, bringing God’s healing to deep wounds, refocusing faith, restoring hope, igniting passion and purpose. Abusive experiences leave wounds lasting decades after the trauma of abuse is over. Survivors often move on, but are left overwhelmed by shame, fear, low self-esteem and powerlessness. This recovery ministry helps survivors build resilience and healing through self-reflection and self-awareness.
The class is free, but requires purchase of the workbook.
