Our guest today is Chaplain/Pastor Leonard Grubb of Painesville, Ohio. Leonard heads up Christian Community Missions and The Big Book-Good Book Discussion Group.
The International Christian Recovery Coalition appreciates his participation. Not only is he a Christian recovery leader; he is also a member of our Speakers Bureau and has established a Christian Recovery Resource Center to serve his community.
Leonard is just the kind of Christian recovery leader now rising up among Christian alcoholics today--ones who are forming First Century Christian fellowships and telling those who still suffer how turning to God is a reliable key to success in overcoming alcoholism.
Leonard speaks boldly about God, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Bible. And he speaks freely about how to conduct a Big Book-Good Book Discussion Group. A fellowship to convey to the recovery community that God, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Bible played very clear roles in early Alcoholics Anonymous. The result? A.A. claims a 75% success rate among the "seemingly-hopeless," "medically-incurable," "real" alcoholics of early A.A. who wanted God’s help and were willing to go to any length to get it. Leonard mentions the 93% success rate achieved and documented in early Cleveland A.A. A fellowship which grew from 1 group to 30 in a year’s time.
I’m sure Leonard will tell us about his family, business, faith, 27 years of sobriety, recovery work, and service as a chaplain and ordained pastor. Leonard speaks clearly on A.A., sobriety, and becoming a new man in Christ. He represents the recovered alcoholic who chose to rely on God, accept Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior, read the Bible, ask for help, and serve God and others.
