Higher Power Recovery Ministry

Higher Power Recovery Celebration has been serving the San Francisco Peninsula since 1992. At Higher Power, you can expect an evening of music, teaching, and fellowship centered around God's work in our recovery. We have original and upbeat worship, ranging from blues bands to solo artists, big bands, funk, island, jazz, and gospel bands. Each week we have different speakers that teach on multiple topics. One week we teach on the 12 steps, another we will teach on - being healthy in recovery or the importance of getting connected and being in service, or we will have testimonies from people who have found a new way in recovery at Higher Power.


Currently we meet every Friday night from 7–8pm on Zoom. Meeting ID:  936 133 489
PWD: 089363


We believe that no one is ever too broken, too scarred or too far gone to create change. Never stop fighting. Never lose faith.

Currently none of the below meetings meet at Central Peninsula Church due to COVID-19.

A Safe Place – “A Safe Place” is a ministry for women who fear they may have a problem with alcohol, and for those already in the process of recovery. It is an opportunity for women to begin the process of healing from the shame and bondage related to alcohol issues in a confidential setting. Through God’s Word and the 12 steps for Christians, we will work together, share, and pray for each other,” as we work toward “living in the solution,” God’s way. Please contact Ricky for more information.

Additional Support

Outside the Friday night service, workshops, and supports that provide the framework for this ministry, we also offer various events and services that are worth mentioning:

  • An annual retreat in the fall, at minimal cost so that everyone has an opportunity to enter into fellowship and grow deeper in the faith.
  • Fellowship events and worship nights.
  • Both pastoral and clinical counseling in the area of addiction.
  • A wide range of referrals that may benefit your particular need.
