The Recovery Lead provides administrative, recovery, and spiritual oversight for the House, and also oversees the day-to-day Resident adherence to the culture and expectations, alongside the Spiritual Lead. The Recovery Lead has personally journeyed through all the stages of recovery and is given a platform from which to assist others in that same journey. The recovery practices cultivated over time become further solidified as they are shared. Though a good portion of the role is upholding the administrative side of the House, the majority of the influence is derived from a life modeled before the Residents day in and day out. A lifestyle of sobriety is what each is after.
The ideal Recovery Lead possesses the following qualities:
Displays consistent character and humble leadership (a servant, not a dictator)
Possesses a selfless attitude
Possesses an administrative aptitude
Has a professional attitude
Has a spirit of hospitality
Strong conflict resolution skills
Actively seeking God as they understand Him
Money is not a primary objective
Working a solid program
“Recovered” (i.e. “not new” in recovery)
Good reputation within the recovery community and the community at large
The Promises are coming true in life
Possess the inner strength to execute dismissal upon resident relapse and maintain personal stability/clarity
