How We Got Started
A Call To Service

In the late 80’s a group was formed called Overcomers Support Group to assist people in moving through escaping addiction and maintianing the freedom from addiction.  The leadership shifted to Pastor Mike Back in 1993 as he took over and continued to grow the group. After only a year or so Pastor Mike was aware that many people (especially men) were coming to the Lord with great sincerity.  He also noticed however, that because many of the people were not grounded in the Lord they were falling back into their old pattern of living.

This began to weigh heavily on the heart of Pastor Mike and he felt the need to do something to assist men struggling under the weight of drug addiction.  His thought was to be able to have a place for men to live and be discipled in a safe, structured environment in order to change their life to live addiction free. He shared his idea with Pastor Denny Duron at Shreveport Community Church. Pastor Denny agreed that it was something that was greatly needed for the area. His instruction: “Great! Give your life to it and start looking for a place.”

Romans 8:28-30

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified.

As always with God, he doesn’t call the prepared, he prepares the called.  In the fall of that same year a church in East Texas had moved to a new location.  Rather than sell the building and the beautiful piece of property that went with, they decided it would be better used by donating it to Shreveport Community Church.  When Pastor Denny saw it, he knew this was the perfect spot for Pastor Mike’s dream.  Pastor Denny stopped Mike at a football practice where they were both coaching to tell him they had just received the property and wanted Mike to see it.  As soon as Mike saw it both men knew, this was the perfect spot for the new rehabilitation center.

In January of 1995 Pastor Mike and a couple of other leaders moved to the property and in February they had their first three residents.   The name was changed from Overcomers Training Center to Eagle Creek Recovery Center, but the founding ideas have remained the same. Now, over 20 years later Eagle Creek Recovery Center continues the rich and wonderful history of assisting men to be set free from the clutches of addiction.
