Yes. Just download the Zoom Cloud Meetings app, and remember that all the guidelines will still apply, including the headphone/earbud requirement.

Yes, as long as they both are seen in the video, and they both have headphones/earphones in. This can be accomplished with a Y splitter, or possibly with bluetooth (I am not sure of this so you would need to check), or if using one set of earphones, each person could use one earpiece each. They cannot do this if they will not have headphones/earphones in.

There are no Large Group Meetings online in any format. However, local CRs are using platforms such as Facebook live, Zoom, etc. to broadcast worship music sets, testimonies, devos, and recovery topic discussions, as well as offering temporary Crisis Response Open Share groups on zoom. Contact your local CR to find out what they are offering at this time.

If you do want to have a time for music, I would suggest setting aside time before the actual group time to do so and letting the participants know ahead of time as it will add time to the amount of time you will meet. If your CR will be using breakout rooms, you could have time for music before the host assigns everyone to their breakout rooms. If each leader will host groups from their own account, just state the time you will have music beforehand, and what time the open share time will begin.

Great question! You can absolutely have one-on-one conversations in any way you choose, including through zoom, as long as you do not run it as a CRCR Open Share group. These are what needs to be overseen and scheduled through the local Ministry Leader or CR Leader. Meeting one-on-one would just be you and another person connecting, talking, and supporting each other. This of course can include giving guidance and suggestions (as each gives permission, no fixing, which is giving unsolicited advice). This would be no different than connecting with a sponsee via phone, with the exception of being on video and people being able to overhear both sides of the conversation. For this reason, I would still suggest the use of earphones and being alone for the purpose of protecting anonymity and confidentiality.

Yes, they would still be within the DNA and be endorsed by the National Team. However, since we are not giving guidance, resources, and training for any other platform in the context of using them for CRCR groups, you run a higher risk of violating anonymity, confidentiality, and security. So, the Ministry Leader will have the sole burden of researching, investigating and educating themselves and their leaders and participants on the platform. We, as a National Team, are not responsible for violations at any local CR at any given time, and that is no different right now. However, we always want to give you the best possible information, resources, and training we can to help you decrease your risks.

If you have not been able to connect with your local CR, go to celebraterecovery.com then click on CR Groups>Find a Group. From there you can find other CRs in your state to reach out to find out of they are having CRCR groups. If you still are not able to find one, you can also reach out to your area state rep for help. When you click on CR Groups you will then click on Find your State Rep. 

Steps Studies are not being held at this time, so you will need to wait on beginning in the books. However, if you are able to connect with someone one-on-one from a CR, you can definitely discuss topics in the Bible, devos, and other resources to help you in your recovery.

At this time we know we will have the Summits, we just don't exactly know what it will look like. We are discussing options and ideas and will definitely let everyone know what the plans are as soon as we know. Since we don't know what will happen moving forward with the virus and stay-at-home orders, we just are not able to finalize our plans yet. We are considering different options for different outcomes.

Absolutely! There are a few ways to do this. Our local CR posts a live time of worship and encouragement an hour before our CRCR Open Share groups begin, which allows us to "chat" in the comments section. This can also be accomplished by doing a zoom time together, then going into the CRCR Open Share groups either by leaving the mixed gender time and then logging in to the CRCR groups, or by using the breakout room feature from the mixed gender time. However, one word of caution, I would consider actually muting everyone during the devo time and possibly not encourage a discussion time if you do it mixed gender (which would be the case in a typical Large Group in CR). Instead, maybe have more of a fellowship time with one large group of men and another large group of women, then split into your CRCR groups, or do it after the group ends as you said. The reason I encourage this is to avoid unhealthy mixed gender  emotional connections. We encourage women and men to spend time together at our Solid Rock Cafe for this reason, so I would suggest following this protocol at this time as well.

God never wastes a hurt! Meaning God will use anything we go through for the good, to help others. A great scripture reference is 2 Corinthians 1:3-4:

"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God."
