Paul Kingsbury
Co-Founder/President of RU Recovery Ministries
Dr. Paul Kingsbury has been the senior pastor of North Love Baptist Church since 1982, with a congregation that has grown to nine hundred regular attending members. His ministry includes a private Christian school, Bible College, Bus Ministry, and is the home of Reformers Unanimous Recovery Ministries. Thousands of people have come to Christ out of serious addictions and are experiencing freedom and victory through this program. Pastor Kingsbury’s church has also opened discipleship homes for men and women, where they may be mentored from a lifestyle of stubborn habits to developing a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Benjamin Burks
International Director of RU Recovery Ministries
In 2001, Brother Burks attended the first conference in Rockford, Illinois hosted by Reformers Unanimous. He left Rockford with an intense desire to go home to Virginia and reach the addicted within his community.  He began a chapter in Virginia shortly after returning home from that conference.  His heart was stirred to reach the addicted not only in that community but also across America.  God led him and his family to Rockford, Illinois in 2003, only two years after attending that conference, to become the International Director of the fastest growing addiction ministry in the United States.
Brother Burks is a Bible school graduate and has worked as an Assistant Pastor, Senior Pastor, and Staff Evangelist.  He has been in ministry since 1984 and has watched through the years as his family, friends, and acquaintances have had their lives wrecked because of the many addictions that Satan uses to destroy lives.  He has seen the destruction up close and from afar and grew tired of watching lives and families destroyed.  God has given to him a burden and a tool to help people who are held captive by their addictions and stubborn habits.  “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” - John 8:32
He has used this tool, and seen thousands of lives changed and people set free from their chains of addiction.  Reformers Unanimous is a faith-based addiction program designed to direct the addicted back to God’s support group—the local church.  Brother Burks is now privileged to travel and train others how to help the addicted within their communities.  He is available to answer all questions about bringing RU to your community.
