At New Earth Recovery, one of our core values is building bridges between divergent worlds. We seek to connect those from marginalized contexts with those in the mainstream by promoting dialogue, consulting with congregations about how to make churches safe for those struggling with addiction, and equipping ministries and agencies to better walk alongside those in recovery.


New Earth Recovery offers recovery seminars to inform, promote healing, raise awareness about how addiction works and its impact on individuals, families, and communities, and reawaken hope. Ask us how your group can host one of our seminars!

Full Counselor Zoom Training

April 26-29, 2021

Monday - Thursday

8:30 am - 5:30 pm (Pacific)

In this interactive, online four-day Genesis training via Zoom, we'll explore the roots of destructive patterns that keep others—and ourselves—trapped in cycles of bondage: workaholism, food, anxiety,  codependency, sex, shopping, alcohol, porn, substances, and other self-comforts. 


The Genesis counselor training is designed for lay persons, pastors, or agency/ministry workers who want to take individuals through the one-on-one Genesis process. It is also open to those who want to explore their own addictions or stuck places; family members or friends who want to gain a greater understanding of why their loved ones are struggling; and anyone who wants to better understand how addiction works. 


We'll tackle questions like: How do compulsions function in the brain? Why is it so hard to get free, despite our promises and resolve? How do false beliefs contribute to our stuck behaviors? How do destructive patterns get started? What's the role of trusting relationships in healing? How can we get free? And how can we best help those who are struggling?


Explore the mystery of addiction in a grace-filled, safe environment. Come to better understand yourself or those you love. We look forward to meeting you.

This online webinar presents Alan and Amy facilitating in real time, with the same great content as the in-person training, plenty of time for question and answer, and virtual breakout rooms to practice the skills with a partner.

Recovery for Everyone: A One-Day Seminar

Hosted by your church or agency

Are you tired of seeing people you love fall back into destructive behavior over and over again? Are you hungry for the kind of healing that leads to lasting change?


Join us for Recovery for Everyone, a Saturday seminar about how addiction works, how to walk alongside those who are struggling, and pathways to get free.


The Recovery for Everyone day seminar will explore the roots of addictive patterns that keep others—and ourselves—trapped in cycles of bondage. Come tackle those mystifying coping mechanisms that promise relief but keep us stuck: alcohol, substances, workaholism, food, worry, codependency, sex, shopping, technology, and other self-comforts. Come to better understand yourself and the ones you love, and come to allow God to encounter you.
