About the Weekends

Many of the people that come to the Credo Recovery Weekend have felt that they were unable to break free from addictions, which had taken over their will and stolen their freedom.

However, during the Weekend each person is flooded with the amazing grace of God and begin making honest steps toward recovery and transformation. 

Invariably, during the Weekend Retreat, participants are awakened to the idea that addictions have oppressed their true desires, and affected their judgement. During those initial three days they recognize from the instruction and the testimonies of recovering addicts, that God is offering them a fresh start and holy solution – a new life. They realize that their hands, hearts, minds and attention have been warped by additions, addictions which have filled up the spaces where God’s unconditional love is intended to flow.

As the participants begin to understand that God is offering them divine freedom, they take the tools offered during the Weekend Instruction and use them to achieve their breakthrough.

After the Weekend Instruction, the Credo Community remains steadfastly loyal, providing the needed support and encouragement during weekly follow-up activities.

The three-part Credo Process For Recovery was adapted from the Cursillo & Kairos Methods

A carefully trained team prepares to conduct a three-day period of initial instruction.

The three days of instruction are conducted on Thursday evening, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The instruction is gender specific. Men teach men, and women teach women.

Weekly follow-up meetings provide support and accountability.
