A Public Talk and Three Workshops by Dick B. and Ken B. at the CROSS Florida Conference February 8-9, 2013:

 Public Talk by Dick B. and Ken B.
“Your Heavenly Father will never let you down!”
(Alcoholics Anonymous, 4th ed., 181)

Dick B. and his son Ken B. will present an overview of Dick B.’s 23 years of research on the roles played by God, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Bible in the astounding 75% overall success rate A.A. claimed for its early days and the documented 93% success rate in early Cleveland A.A. among “seemingly-hopeless,” “medically-incurable” alcoholics who thoroughly followed the original Akron A.A. “Christian fellowship” program. They will give an introduction to the mission and outreach plans of the International Christian Recovery Coalition. And they will discuss Christian Recovery resources—many of which are free—available at the Web site and elsewhere.

Workshop #1 by Dick B. and Ken B.
Christian Recovery Principles from
the Bible & A.A.’s Christian Predecessors

Jesus Christ taught in the temple daily (Matt 26:55). Daily in the temple and in every house the apostles taught and preached Jesus as the Christ (Acts 5:42). And believers are encouraged to exhort one another daily (Heb 3:13). What did the A.A. pioneers in Akron do? Bob E. stated on page 118 of DR. BOB and the Good Oldtimers: “. . . [W]e met every night.” Prayer and Bible study were strongly encouraged by A.A.’s predecessors such as the YMCA, the Salvation Army, evangelists such as Dwight L. Moody, gospel rescue missions, Christian Endeavor, and A First Century Christian Fellowship (“the Oxford Group”). What did they do in Akron? “He must have devotions every morning—a ‘quiet time’ of prayer and some reading from the Bible . . .” (DR. BOB and the Good Oldtimers, 131). Dick B. and Ken B. will cover these and other principles and practices from the Bible and A.A.’s Christian predecessors that found their way into A.A. and can be applied in Christian Recovery efforts today.

Workshop #2 by Dick B. and Ken B.
How the First Three AAs Got Sober &
the Original Akron A.A. “Christian Fellowship” Program
(a 75% Success Rate among “Medically-Incurable” Alcoholics)

How did Bill W., Dr. Bob, and Bill D. (A.A. Number Three) recover “from a seemingly hopeless state of mind and body” (i.e., alcoholism) before there was a Big Book, before there were 12 Steps, before there were any Traditions, before there were any “drunkalogs” or meetings as we know them today? Alcoholics Anonymous (the “Big Book”) states: “There is a solution. . . . The central fact of our lives today is the absolute certainty that our Creator has entered into our hearts and lives in a way which is indeed miraculous. He has commenced to accomplish those things for us which we could never do by ourselves.” (Big Book, 4th ed., 25). Dick B. and Ken B. will recount how the first three AAs got sober and discuss the highly-successful, seven(!)-point Akron A.A. “Christian fellowship” program and 16 of its key practices.

Workshop #3 by Dick B. and Ken B.
How to Substantially Enhance Your Effectiveness
as a Christian Leader or Worker in the Recovery Arena

In 1990, a young Christian A.A. asked Dick B.: “Dick, did you know that A.A. came from the Bible?” Dick replied, “John, I have been to 1,000 A.A. meetings, and I have never heard that!” John answered, “Read DR. BOB and the Good Oldtimers.” Dick read that amazing A.A. General Service Conference-approved book, and what he found launched him on 23 years of research into the roles played by God, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Bible in the astonishing success of early Alcoholics Anonymous with “seemingly-hopeless,” “medically-incurable” alcoholics who thoroughly followed the pioneer A.A. path. Dick B. and Ken B. will share from Dick’s 46 titles, 1,250 articles, and hundreds of audio talks about how—largely through the use of “Conference-approved” literature–recovery leaders and workers involved with A.A., N.A., and Christian recovery outreach can become much more effective in their efforts. One such way is to become a “Participant” (no charge—free!) in the International Christian Recovery Coalition (

Christian Recovery Organization Summit of South Florida (CROSSFlorida) is Friday and Saturday, February 8th and 9th, 2013 in Miami Florida.

“Do you have a family member or friend whose behavior is affecting you or your family? Are you a Pastor who does not know how to help a member of your congregation who is addicted to pornography, drugs or alcohol?

Or maybe you are in recovery or wish to be; or you are the leader of your church’s Christian recovery ministry and you would like to connect with other South Florida based Christ-centered recovery ministries/ministry leaders. If so, there is good news.

On February 8 & 9, 2013, CROSStFLORIDA will be hosting the first Christian Recovery Conference in South Florida. This non-denominational summit seeks to present Christian Recovery as it was in its beginnings and will be held at the First Presbyterian Church in downtown Miami. Activities include concerts; keynote speakers; and workshops covering Alcohol and Drug abuse, food addiction, post-abortion trauma, co-dependency, grief, and many other areas of dysfunction.


This conference will be held at First Miami Presbyterian Church at 609 Brickell Avenue, located on the Miami river in the heart of Miami and one of the oldest and most beautiful churches in South Florida. A charming historic facility. Excellent restaurants and hotels are located within walking distance of the site.

The Cross Florida Summit brings Christians and Christian Recovery Groups together to praise the Lord and bring even more excitement and fellowship into this growing movement. We uplift and edify each other and enjoy a wonderful fellowship of believers. Check out the webpage and see if it is something you wish to be involved with and also share it with others – We hope we hear from you and get to meet you in Miami in February.
