Kurt & Jennifer Liebl
Kurt and Jennifer have been leading Celebrate Recovery for over two years and started a chapter at The Door church in 2018. They were both born and raised in the Morgan county area and have raised three kids in their twenty-two years of marriage. Through their leadership they have been assisting in the transformation of hearts and minds for those struggling with hurts, hang-ups, and habits. They openly welcome all to join them on Monday nights for fellowship and tools to help overcome the obstacles of life. Dinner is served at 6pm and free childcare is available. A special program called The Landing is also available for teens aged 12 - 19, which is also cost-free.

Since the beginning of time, men and women have searched for happiness — usually in all the wrong places, trying all the wrong things. But there’s only one place where we can find tested-and-proven, absolutely-gonna-work principles that will lead to healing and happiness. These principles come in the form of eight statements from the truest of all books — the Bible — and from the most revered Teacher of all time — Jesus Christ. Jesus laid out these principles for happiness in the Sermon on the Mount in the gospel of Matthew, chapter 5.
The 12 Steps
We admitted we were powerless over our addictions and compulsive behaviors, that our lives had become unmanageable.
"I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature.
For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out."
We came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
"For it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose."
We made a decision to turn our lives and our wills over to the care of God.
"Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God - this is your spiritual act of worship."
We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
"Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the Lord."
We admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
"Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed."
We were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
"Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up."
We humbly asked Him to remove all our shortcomings.
"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness."
1 John 1:9
We made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.
"Do to others as you would have them do to you."
We made direct amends to such people whenever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
"Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to your brother; then come and offer your gift."
We continue to take personal inventory and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it.
"So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don't fall!"
1 Corinthians 10:12
We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, praying only for knowledge of His will for us, and power to carry that out.
"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly."
Having had a spiritual experience as the result of these steps, we try to carry this message to others and practice these principles in all our affairs.
"Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore them gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted."
