David P. of San Diego is our guest. He's a businessman; long-recovered AA; overseer of Rock Recovery Ministry, and a hands-on worker with alcoholics, addicts, and others in the vibrant Rock Church arena in San Diego, California. Thousands pour into the church each Sunday. It is the largest church in San Diego County. It has a noted senior pastor. Many of its members are involved in the recovery community. And the church certainly reaches out to help alcoholics, addicts, and other suffering souls in many ways. In fact, David's work closely approximates the daily recovery events we advocate for Christian recovery.
David is a fast-moving catalyst in all these endeavors. He focuses on residential recovery facilities, treatment, the needs of the newcomer, and involvement in a broad community outreach through the church and 12 Step groups.This includes the Bible, early A.A.’s Christian roots, plus a welcome view of the importance of both “anonymous” fellowships like Alcoholics Anonymous and Christian Recovery fellowships in the life of a church like the Rock Church.
