Is it possible that one program can change your life? Could this possibly be the week you start your life of victory? What you can expect at your first meeting.
Our Philosophy and Approach to Treatment
At Reformers Unanimous we help any adult find freedom. Let us be part of your recovery.
Finding Your Way There
Reformers Unanimous meets every Friday from 7:00pm until 9:15pm with fellowship time afterward. We also have a class on Sunday morning at 10:00am. Streetsboro RU meets at the First Baptist Church of Streetsboro – 9001 State Route 43, in Streetsboro. The building is on the corner of Seasons Rd. and Route 43 – you can see it from Streetsboro town square across from the GetGo gas station. The only entrance to the property is off of Seasons Road. You can park anywhere you like and front and back entrances are open – but most people park around front as that is the main entrance and the one closest to all the facilities we use.

Once You Arrive
You’ll be greeted at the door and given our bulletin for that evening. Our greeters will show you where we meet and will be able to take you to the nursery (for newborns through three years old), the Kidz Club (kids 4-11 years old) or the Full Throttle Teen Program (13-18 years old). They will give you a brief explanation of what will happen that evening and introduce you to some fellow students. Doors open at 6:45 so come a few minutes early for a cup of coffee and some good conversation.
The Friday Night Meeting Schedule
The Friday class is an integral part of the Reformers Unanimous program. The format is divided into three segments. We call it “Talk, talk, talk”. Each “Talk” is about 40 minutes in length with a 5 minute break in between each.
First, we talk to God. We do that in two ways. First we open with a word of prayer. We then give students an opportunity to share how God has changed their lives – our stories of victory. This serves to give encouragement to other students and credit where credit is due. We don’t like to talk about what we’ve done to God, we like to talk about what God has done for us!
Our visitors love to hear stories of recovery through God’s miraculous, saving grace. We hear of days, weeks, months, and years of victory.
Second, we talk to each other. Reformers Unanimous breaks into challenge groups to share each of our burdens or blessings. Each group is led by a counsel leader. We take the first part of this time to review our curriculum for the past week and complete our challenges. If anyone needs personal counsel, it is made available.
Third, God talks to us. He does that during the message. Reformers Unanimous doesn’t just listen to people talk about their problems. We teach what God says to do about it. All materials and messages come from the Bible. It is the only book God wrote, thus it is the only one we use.
We have a class textbook, a curriculum book and our daily journal, which keeps us on track through the week while we are away from class (we also have a full line of Spanish curriculum and Institutional Curriculum as well).
Immediately following the Third Talk we have an awards ceremony. Students
