Rich and Beth Cederman

National Recovery Coaches


Rich and Beth are Directors of Recovery Alive, Bethel Church in Goldsboro, NC. Having been active in recovery program leadership for the past 4+ years under the tutelage of John Eklund, they launched RA at their home church in September 2021 and operate a wildly successful ministry with all facets, including meal service, youth programs, and a street outreach ministry.

My name is Beth, and I am a grateful believer in Jesus Christ. I struggle with codependency, self-worth and eating disorders. After a 23-year marriage dissolved, I found myself totally dependent on Jesus for healing and restoration. I lost everything on this earth I held dear, and God is restoring it all. I am a Hospice Nurse Manager currently finishing up my Master’s in Nursing 

I’m Rich, a grateful believer in Jesus, who has delivered me from drugs, drunkenness, anger, pride, shame, and more! I am a 30-yr active-duty military retiree and MBA, currently working on my Masters in Pastoral Counseling in Addiction and Recovery at Liberty University. I am retired and currently serve on Bethel Church’s Senior Leadership Team. 

Married for 2 years, we are empty nesters with a combined 7 grown children. We are happy to help guide/mentor anyone wanting to launch a RA ministry from scratch or transitioning from another recovery program.

Kathleen and Peter Isabell have been married for over 7 years and have made the process of restoration and recovery their life’s work. They have both enjoyed the process of restoring and transforming homes for many years but when God opened the door for them to begin a recovery ministry in their church in Chaska, Minnesota 3 years ago, they were able to stand back and watch the Power of Jesus Christ restore and transform LIVES weighed down with shame, grief, brokenness, and addiction.

Recovery ministry is their passion and they are excited to come alongside leaders who want to begin recovery ministries in their communities.
