1 | Re:Generation is a 12 step Bilabial based program of recovery and discipleship 

There are six weeks of “ground work” and then you break into a “step” group for nine months. It is an environment of complete honesty with no shame, with the goal of healing and relationship with God. | Listen in at 11:23

2 | The hardest step, may be your favorite step

Walking through the hard things lead to freedom and empowerment over things that once held us in bondage. | Listen in at 20:58

3 | Confession brings healing and connection

There is power in being in a group of people authentically sharing. The enemy loses his power and healing begins. | Listen in at 23:11

4 | Individual counseling can only do so much

There is the possibility of more transformation with God’s spirit, his word, and his people together. | Listen in at 38:33

5 | This is not self help, this is new life in God

We are not fixing ourselves, we are working with God’s plan and power of transformation. We don’t want to just feel better, we want to be healed. | Listen in at 51:11


“But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit.” | Titus 3:4-5

“See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.” | Isaiah 43:19


Who doesn’t want freedom from addictive behaviors, compulsive thinking, or sin patterns. Who is just plain tired of always feeling anxious or angsty? Who wants to experience growth and new life? Brooke Gage brought her friend and co-worker, Amy Whitehouse to talk with Stacy about a new ministry launching at Mission Hills. It is called Re:Generation. It is a culmination of what Brooke and Stacy have been discussing regarding personal whole health and the connection with community.
