One-Eighty Church began as a way to help addicts climb back from substance abuse. But over its short life, it has grown to include recovery groups for co-dependence, grief and physical abuse, as well.
“When you use the word ‘recovery,’ people automatically think of drugs and alcohol,” said Gresh Harbuck, who has overseen the ministry for the last three years. “We’re here to help any hurt, habit or hang-up.”
The church will observe its sixth anniversary Friday. It has grown from around 20 to about 275 members, and Harbuck says it needs volunteers. “We need meals, we need bus drivers … we need the whole nine yards,” he said.
