Step Two

We offer training for the pastor and the director that is vital to the success and longevity of the program. We encourage you to attend one of our training opportunities to gain a full understanding of the program. The best training opportunities are listed below:

Rockford Training Days

About six times a year we hold Thursday & Friday RU Training Conferences at our National Headquarters in Rockford, Illinois. We call it Rockford Training Days, and we would love for you to join us. At the conference, you will learn in detail how to start an RU program. You will also have the opportunity to attend a “LIVE” Friday night RU class after the training ends on Friday.

Here are a few topics that will be covered at the conference:

  • What We Believe about Addictions
  • Biblical Basis for an Addictions Program
  • Recovery Program Overview and Philosophy
  • How to Start a Recovery Program in your Church
  • How to Advertise your Recovery Program

The Recovery Conference

The Recovery Conference is one of the greatest annual highlights for directors, pastors, and those planning to start an RU chapter. There is powerful preaching every night and a spirit of revival, as well as instructional workshops.

    • April 11-14, 2016
    • April 8-11, 2019
    • April 10-13, 2017

Regional Conferences

We often host training conferences in different regions of the USA throughout the year. These typically take place on Wednesday through Friday at various churches. We offer training for new chapters and advanced training for existing chapters.
