‘Creating a bridge fromthe correctional CR to
the community CR.’

The NW CRI team is being hosted by Trinity Church CR in Tacoma, WA (http://www.trinitycares.org/) for our next Quarterly on April 7th. This will be a excellent opportunity for those in & around Tacoma to plug in to the most exciting ministry in America. Bring your community CR leadership teams because the CR Inside starts & ends at the community CR group & we need your involvement! Put April 7th at the CRI Quarterly on your calendar today.. questions? contact Richard ‭(253) 222-4749 or Nicole (503) 793-2177

Our last Quarterly on Feb 3rd at Horizon Church in Sherwood, OR was another amazing time of fellowship, encouragement, & enlightenment for those involved in this outreach. God knows His own, some of them are in a jail or prison cell today, CRI volunteers have answered His call to visit the incarcerated & invite them to join us. This is a ministry for the sincerely action-orientated CR person, those recovered in Christ who understand how important taking the CR program into the correctional setting is to the inmate & their family. But also as important is the person at the community CR group, who can reach out to the spouse & children of the prisoner & welcome them into our ‘forever family’! CR Inside is an local outreach, a local mission, of the Celebrate Recovery ministry & is wholly made up of CR members who are consistently attending a CR group, serious about their Christ centered recovery, & taking responsibility to help others in need.

We’ve attached a flyer for the April 7th CRI Quarterly in Tacoma, WA. Please get this to whoever at your CR group does the copying & see that a few copies are put out on your literature table. Also, if during Large Group an announcement could be made that would be awesome.. thank you for serving & walking in recovery today.

In Christ,

Alert! Quarterly Meeting Date Moved

Since the CR Training Event (OneDay) in Brentwood, CA was confirmed for January 27th, we needed to change our date for the Quarterly so as not to distract from their promotion & attendance. We just received confirmation from Horizon that we can have our Quarterly at the Sherwood campus on February 3rd. So the location is the same, 22240 SW Washington St, Sherwood, OR 97140, & the times are the same 10am to 3:30pm (doors open at 8am for set-up), but the date is now Saturday, February 3, 2018.

I hope that this is going to work for everyone, it’s been quite the challenge this time landing on a venue & date but we’re finally done with that part, & can now go ‘full speed ahead’ to promote this event & plan for the best Quarterly ever!

Here’s a new / updated flyer…  Sorry for the inconvenience if you’ve already had flyers made with the old date, but make sure that if you did, to pick them all up & throw them away!!

CRIQ 2-3-18

New CRI State Rep for Washington Appointed

Ken Davis MugshotKen Davis, from Crossroads CR, has been appointed Washington’s latest state rep for CR Inside.

Ken has been involved with Celebrate Recovery for over 10 years & currently serves as the ML for the men’s CRI team at Clark County Jail in Vancouver. Additionally, he is part of the recent CRI start-up team at Larch Correctional Facility (minimum security men’s prison) in Yacolt, WA.

Ken is retired but works part time in his construction business. Here’s how Ken says it

“My name is Ken Davis, I am a grateful believer in Jesus Christ, and a recovering addict, I have been clean and in Celebrate Recovery for over 10 ½ years. I am retired although still work part time in my construction business. My wife and I live, and direct a faith based transitional youth house, with up to 6 young men also in recovery, in Yacolt, Washington.”

We are so fortunate to have Ken, following faithfully his Lord, into the prisons & jails &, into the brokenness of others lives. Staying in recovery ourselves, allowing the Spirit to change us & direct our steps into this CR Inside ministry/mission is indeed a high calling & one not without much opposition on the part of God’s enemy & ours.. please take a moment to offer up a prayer for Ken & his family, for their protection & victory for Christ’s purposes.

 ‘Jesus said to all of them, “If people want to follow me, they must give up the things they want. They must be willing to give up their lives daily to follow me.’ Luke 9:23
