The RECOVERY at Cokesbury Network

The Recovery At Cokesbury Network (RACN) is an extension of the Recovery At Cokesbury program. The network consists of a growing number of partner locations that are structured like the program at Cokesbury, with the teaching elements being delivered through live stream video. 

Pain , Loss, Identity

Everyone struggles with some type of pain, loss or an identity issue of trying to figure out  who they really are.   For some it’s more serious than others. At least 20% of us, one person out of five, are dealing with an active addiction of some sort. Legal and illegal drugs, alcohol, gambling, eating disorders, sex, pornography, co-dependency, resentment, retail addiction, the list goes on and on. The problems and consequences associated with addictive and compulsive behavior are often devastating for the individual and their loved ones. Active addiction is a pathway that leads to spiritual and physical death.  

Addiction and compulsion is a spiritual disease

with physical, emotional and mental outcomes.  

The Recovery at Cokesbury Network is a Christ-centered, Biblically-grounded recovery program that’s based on the 12 steps and the proven principals of AA, NA and Al-Anon that restore lives.

We  do everything we can to provide help and support for those who struggle with addiction and compulsive behavior in its many forms. Without  training and proper resources, churches are challenged to provide a ministry that can address these issues.

RACN Principles

  • We love Jesus and have seen Jesus work miracles here. You can be the next miracle.
  • This is a safe place to share, ask questions or just come and hang out.
  • Recovery at Cokesbury is for anyone dealing with chemical addiction, compulsive behavior, loss, relationship or life change.
  • Scripture is the foundation of our teaching.
  • The 12 Steps of AA are derived from Scripture and are our daily tools for recovery.
  • We encourage participation with AA, NA and Al-anon.


Recovery At Cokesbury

God is at work at Cokesbury Church in Knoxville as a site where He would foster the development of a ministry to serve individuals and families who were dealing with addictive issues and emotional distress. Nearly 15 years after its first service, Recovery At Cokesbury in Knoxville serves up to 600 individuals every Thursday evening. The majority of these people attend one of the open share groups that follow the service. God has restored hundreds of broken people to meaningful, productive and joyful lives through this ministry.

The Recovery at Cokesbury Network is developing a network of satellite locations to extend this ministry to as many people as possible. We’re looking for potential partnerships with churches who’s leadership understands the importance of a vital recovery ministry.
