Jeff Stultz has a story to tell.
Stultz’s story is one of violence, drug addiction, motorcycle gangs and now Broken Chains.
Claremore’s First Baptist Church’s Celebrate Recovery ministry is hosting Stultz, the national director of Broken Chains, on June 12 at 6:30 p.m. and the community is welcome.
According to Celebrate Recovery, “Jeff Stultz spent much of his adult life as a Motorcycle Club leader, living a life of violence, drugs, and alcohol. He spent time in and out of jails and institutions, ultimately hitting rock bottom after spending over two years as a homeless crack addict.”
In April 2007, he found himself at a crossroads.
“He would have to choose life and make changes or accept death and a life in prison. Curiosity led Jeff to a local church where he quickly had life changing experience with Jesus Christ,” they said, adding that it wasn’t much longer before he became involved with the Celebrate Recovery ministry.
Stultz went on to become an ordained pastor.
“In 2016, after putting the biker lifestyle behind him for 9 years, believing he had to give up the life he loved to serve God, Jeff had a realization; Surely, he could meld his biker lifestyle and his Christian lifestyle together if he kept Christ at the very center. From this, Jeff founded Broken Chains JC, a fellowship of bikers who have found hope and healing in Jesus Christ,” they shared.
The purpose of CR’s Broken Chains Ministry is to “share the healing power of Jesus Christ by serving in and promoting the ministry of Celebrate Recovery while continuing to grow in personal and individual recoveries. “
