The misconception that recovery ministry is only for people totally overcome with life's problems still exists today. The need for a small group ministry like Living Free is more important now than ever as our culture continues to be more connected, but individuals are more isolated. Let's face it, we all struggle with something, even those within the church. On today's episode we're taking a look at the heart behind Living Free and how Dr. Lee saw the hurt behind the Sunday smiles.

Living Free exists because one man had a radical vision for what community and recovery from life controlling problems could look like. Dr. Jimmy Ray Lee began Living Free (then Turning Point Ministries) in 1988 with a hope to transform lives through small group curriculum and an important idea behind every group: everybody needs to understand how to deal with and overcome life-controlling problem, not just individuals who obviously need help.

On this week's episode we have the privilege to speak with Jack Smart about the spiritual principles behind Living Free that set it apart from other recovery programs. Jack began his journey in recovery ministry at the age of 24 and is still going strong 40 years later! His introduction to Living Free happened during his time at Adult & Teen Challenge and he has continued to use Living Free materials both personally and for ministry purposes.
We talk about the role the gospel plays in restoring broken people, how the Word, the People of God, and the Spirit work together for transformation, and how Living Free offers participants to experience the love of the Father.
"...because the drug and alcohol issues in our country are so overwhelming, I really believed we've got to get the church involved. In the latter years of my ministry that is my biggest goal, is to get the church involved reaching out to people in need, and I think Living Free is the best tool I've ever seen in order to do that." -Jack Smart
