Overcomers Outreach is a ministry that was born out of a deep need of a support system for individuals and families within evangelical Christian churches. Overcomers Outreach support groups use the Bible and the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous to minister to individuals who are affected by alcohol, mind altering drugs, sexual addiction, gambling, food and other compulsive behaviors or dependencies. Family members are welcome at our meetings. The message is based on the Bible and the ministry is motivated by the love of God. The mission of Overcomers Outreach is to bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to the hurting, and meet human needs in His name without discrimination. Overcomers Outreach is a bridge between the church and Traditional 12 Step programs.

I see a few meetings online going on here and there. I must be missing a website or something. Would you kindly refer me a link to all online overcomer meetings.

I have been on this journey for sometime now, and I am learning more about recovery in Jesus Christ as my personal experience / relationship with God the heavenly father in whom I have hope, happiness in liberty by the holy spirit. Now that it get easy at times and at times I have to pray for guidance and wisdom to take me to new levels in life without holding on to fear guilt and shame the devils blame of shame!

Working on my D.Min in Pastoral Care, using support groups as my project. I led an OO group in the church many years ago and it was a blessing. By the outcome with the members I know it works. With the results of this present Pandemic situation we are facing I can see some people benefiting from OO. I just ordered a kit; Can you recommend any other material, any input?
Thank you for your time!

Can you tell me what to do with the scriptures from the topic study? Like questions to ask. A couple ladies and i are going to start meeting and non of us are in good financial shape so we won’t be buying any study books. We thought we would just start with writing and see where it goes. Thank you for any direction you can give. God bless.

Thank you for your interest in Overcomers Outreach. Our founders, Bob and Pauline Bartosch put months of thought in the selection of scriptures for the topics and steps posted. The original format for OO meetings was (and often still is) to gather, pray, read, share, and pray. Many groups go through the topics alphabetically, with one meeting a month studying a step. In the meetings I go to, we pick a scripture and read to the group, share how it is relevant to the topic, and often to our current situation Others may discuss, or move to the next verse. Wherever the Spirit leads.
We also have additional topics and scriptures available as an appendix to the FREED guide booklet. you can find these at:
