Joining the Men’s Group

In order to join our men’s groups, you must do the following:

  1. Schedule an intake session with Darrell Brazell, director of New Hope Recovery Ministries or Bob Clifton at Christ First Counseling Center in Topeka
  2. Listen to Darrell’s message: A Theology of Sex
  3. Read, fill out, sign and turn in the intake documents.
  4. Sometime within your first two months, you must have a one on one session with Darrell or your counselor to go over your sexual history inventory. This inventory is included in chapter 3 of Darrell’s New Hope For Sexual Integrity Manual.
  5. If you are married, we highly encourage your wife to join you for the initial intake session as well as ongoing couples’ sessions.
  6. We also highly recommend your wife join the wives’ recovery group. If she is willing, she should contact Debbie Brazell by using the contact form below or calling the church office at 785-331-HOPE (4673) and leaving a message. Debbie will call her as soon as her schedule allows.
  7. New Hope Recovery Ministries does not charge for recovery coaching, groups, etc. However, we are dependent on donations so we ask you consider giving so we can effectively serve you and others through this difficult process. Please see suggested donation page of Intake Documents
