House of Representatives


I am pleased to pay tribute to RU Recovery Ministries during their 2018 Recovery Conference in Rockford, Illinois.

President Trump has declared our country to be in a state of emergency, and the work of RU Recovery Ministries is more imperative now than ever.

Since its establishment in 1996 under the leadership of Steve Curington and Pastor Paul Kingsbury, RU Recovery has provided a pathway to freedom from the bondage of addiction for thousands across the country. As a proven faith-based addiction-recovery ministry, this fine organization fills a need that local governments and communities cannot fulfill, and with over 50 chapters in the State of Ohio, it has touched the lives of many Ohioans from every walk of life.

All those associated with RU Recovery Ministries have consistently ministered to the spirit of the individual, and they are to be commended for their foresight, dedication, and selfless donations of time, energy, and ability far beyond what was required or expected. These fine people have earned the respect and admiration of many and have set an example of concerned and responsible citizenship that is worthy of emulation.

Thus, with sincere applause, I show my gratitude to RU Recovery Ministries and extend best wishes for the years to come.

Honorable Ron Young
State Representative Ohio’s 61st House District
