Since 2005, Finishing Strong has existed to provide a safe, confidential, grace-based fellowship of recovery where a man can experience healing from destructive sexual behavior- porn, masturbation, adultery- so every man can finish the Christian life strong. Using Biblical principles, Finishing Strong encourages men to experience healing and recovery with other men by providing weekly opportunities for men to meet together in an ongoing support and growth group. Finishing Strong desires to present an environment where a man can establish sexual sobriety and grow in intimacy with God and others.
We believe that no deep, viable, long-term change will happen in a man’s life apart from the Word of God and Spirit of God in the context of a fellowship of men. Destructive sexual behavior drives us into ever-increasing isolation. Healing and recovery can only take place in the community of other men. A relational problem requires a relational solution.
Finishing Strong groups meet weekly for 60 to 75 minutes and are limited to 10 to 12 men. The groups have a content portion where life recovery principles are discussed. The groups also give an opportunity each week for a man to confess any slips, temptations, feelings, and thoughts during the past week, or celebrate a great week of recovery. The groups seek to build community – a fellowship of like-minded men seeking to encourage each other to not let destructive sexual behavior be an obstacle to finishing the Christian life strong. Weekly topics include – “Why do I do what I do?” “Where does the journey begin?” “Is being alone, really bad company?” “What is so important about honesty?”
All groups meet weekly. This is not a 12-week study. Life recovery and finishing strong is an ongoing process.
Groups meet at various locations including Holland, Zeeland, Hudsonville, Royal Oak, and Benton Harbor/St.Joe. Creating a safe place for men to meet is vital to recovery, so it’s essential that anonymity and confidentiality are established. Groups are open to new men but are restricted in the sense that each man is first ‘interviewed’ before joining a group.
During Covid19 you also have the option of meeting virtually.
