What is Reformers Unanimous?

Reformers Unanimous (RU) is a revolutionary addiction recovery program developed from over a decade of experience working with hundreds of thousands of addicts through local churches. Addiction experts Steve Curington and Dr. Paul Kingsbury have produced a program that uses a unique spiritual approach to develop lifelong sobriety. If you have tried everything else and are looking for something that “just works” then this program is for you.

In this local chapter the curriculum developed by the Reformers Unanimous Staff is used to great effect. Reformers Unanimous boasts an 82% success rate among the graduates of its discipleship course. The program has proven to be so effective for one very important reason: “It takes people from lives of addiction and places them into God’s intended support group, the local church.” Here the addict becomes firmly fixed in the ways of a healthy and godly lifestyle and forsakes his former ways for the abundant Christian life that proves to be so much more rewarding.

When does Reformers meet?

The Reformers Unanimous group meets every Friday night from 7-9 pm, and every Sunday at 9:30 am. Childcare is provided for free. Please call the church at (417) 889-1999 if you need transportation.
