CR Inside is an extension of the Celebrate Recovery® ('CR') Ministry founded by John Baker at SaddleBack Church in Lake Forest, CA. that takes the healing power of Christ through the 8 Principles and 12 Steps of Celebrate Recovery into the jails and prisons across the globe. We are blessed to have the opportunity to share CR with our brothers and sisters who are currently incarcerated, hopefully giving them the tools to overcome their hurts, habits, and hang-ups through the CR curriculum and to help them find ultimate freedom in Christ no matter where they are in their life or their circumstance.
