  The Purpose

Responding Recovery Ministries is all about Responding to the Truth (Jesus). We are not about a program or a seminar, but about a person. We believe that the person of Jesus can consume an individual in such a way, which will restore the totality of the person to include the spiritual, social, mental, and physical.


Therefore, we are about the many facets of Jesus that would manifest in the entirety and wholeness of the individual. The ministries below are what we are finding ourselves involved in as the movement of God through the person of Jesus, works in us to a lost world around us.



Responding 12-Step Recovery


 Responding 12-Step Recovery and its new Workbook/DVD material, is authored by Jerry Liversage. He has had extensive experience in this arena as he has worked with various recovery organizations for 31 years since his own recovery from drug addition (see profile for further qualifications).


Responding 12-Step Recovery refers to the traditional 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous, but has its primary focus on the Word of God to include the Power and Person of Jesus as its sole source to ANY recovery issue.

We believe the secular 12-Step world is a mission field that is ripe unto harvest for such a time as this. We focus on the Written and Living Word of God, which is all about Jesus. This material has a single focus of being saturated in the Word of God.  We will deal with areas such as chemical addiction, anger management, depression, low self-esteem, etc.

However, the main portion of the process is all about the Living Person of Jesus acting on the foundation of the individual’s life.


Responding 12-Step Recovery material is designed for a group setting over a one year period on a weekly basis. We are a Christ-Centered publication with a Biblically based focus on Jesus Christ as The "higher power.” We are about a study in the Word of God while using the traditional 12 steps of Alcoholic Anonymous as a tool to bridge the secular and the church of Jesus Christ. It is designed to reach all individuals to include those who have a deeper desire to know what God would have to say concerning the destructive forces of dysfunctional behaviors. It is the effective tool that brings healing and deliverance, as people begin to experience the love and life of Jesus living in them.



Responding Recovery DVD Teaching Series

Responding Recovery DVD Teaching Series contains everything needed for a group facilitator to begin a small group setting. Each workbook contains promos, training helps, and 48- 15 min. teachings to each weekly session given by Jerry Liversage. This a great companion to the Workbook and is needed for each small group facilitator.



Responding Recovery National Group Meetings

We are beginning to see the movement of God in the establishment of Group Meeting in various areas across this country. We are trusting that many will follow as this new ministry continues in the name of Jesus. See  "Ministries" on the Home page for meeting locations




Responding Recovery Seminars

We are available for seminars/presentations to leaders, small groups, and/or congregations who would like an overview of Responding Recovery Ministries to include Responding 12-Step Recovery. We are also available for speaking at existing 12-Step groups who are interested in knowing how the Bible speaks to overcoming victory from dysfunctional behaviors of all types.






Responding Recovery Music



Jerry, Holly and daughter Reanna recorded songs of deliverance which hi-lights the power and person of Jesus.




The Vision


  A Cross Style Training Center


Our goal at the end of all efforts is to work with Cross Style Training Center through Cross Style International Ministries.

Our shared belief concerns the cross which was more than an event one day in the life of Jesus; it was and is His continual style. This style was manifested in His constant response to the will and moving of the indwelling presence of the Father.  Jesus did not operate on His own or out of His own resource, but lived in the continual flow of what the Father would do through Him.  It is still His style, the "cross style," which He now desires to reproduce as He comes to indwell us through His Spirit. As Jesus lived in this world, so we live in constant response to His will and moving in us, not operating out of our own resources, but in the constant flow of what He would do through us for a time such as this.

We believe this is the next natural step of an individual. As he or she begins to see the awesome work of Jesus in their lives, they will be open to the progression of discipleship which is all about the intimate life of Jesus being expressed through the whole person.

Saturation in the Word of God is foundational to dividing the word of truth in a humanistic world in which we live. Through the “written” and “living” Word of God (Jesus), the heart can be so captured and transformed that it will carry the “message” of the living Jesus to a lost world. The Cross Style Training Center will exist to facilitate the message of Jesus.
