Robert & Wanda Lambert

Ministry Journey


Rob is a gifted communicator, Bible teacher, author, and playwright. He has been faithfully serving the 12-step recovery community since 2009. Rob’s love for Christ, compassion, and enthusiasm to reach and serve the recovery community have led him to impact people in South Africa, the United Kingdom, Puerto Rico, and around the United States. Now, they have accepted God’s call to start Christ & Recovery Ministries in NYC. Their focus will be to reach and serve people affected by addiction to Christ while creating programs and services that change lives and transform communities.


Rob was born in Brockton, Massachusetts, to troubled parents who were tormented by substance abuse. As a result, he used it for the first time at the tender age of eleven.

In 1988, caught in the grips of a crack cocaine addiction, Rob attended his first 12-step recovery meeting.

Rob struggled with long-term clean time. Finally, in 2005, he was free from drugs, but his flesh continued to lead him down a road of destruction, ravaging his life and the lives of those around him.

In 2009, with four years clean and desperately searching for something greater (higher power), Rob packed up and left Massachusetts. He moved into the Recovery House of Worship (RHOW) in Brooklyn, New York, to participate in the Faith-Based Men’s Recovery Program. Shortly after, he surrendered his life to Christ!

In 2013, Rob completed a three-year Certification Program in Pastoral Theology from Urban Academy (URBACAD) and is a passionate student of the word.

Rob’s call to share the message of hope in Christ with the people in 12-step recovery and those affected by addiction in NYC is clear.

In 2022, Christ and Recovery Ministries Inc. was planted in Brooklyn, New York.

Rob is married to Wanda, who supports him unconditionally by being the ministry “behind the scenes staff.” They have a beautiful dog named Nhgee, a bunch of nieces and nephews, and a never-ending love for Jesus, pizza, and ice cream.

Each church is independent and autonomous and must be free from interference by any ecclesiastical or political authority; that, therefore, Church and State must be kept separate as having different functions, each fulfilling its duties free from the dictation or patronage of the other.

We believe that a visible church is a company of believers in Jesus Christ, buried with Him in baptism and associated for worship, work and fellowship.

We believe that to these visible churches were committed for observance “until He comes,” the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper; and that God has laid upon these churches the task of persuading a lost world to accept Jesus Christ as Savior and to enthrone Him as Lord and Master. We believe that righteous living, good works and proper social concern are essential products of the gospel.

We believe, therefore, that those who accept Christ as their Lord and Savior will rejoice forever in God’s presence and those who refuse to accept Christ as Lord and Savior will be forever separated from God.
We believe in His bodily resurrection, His ascension into heaven, His high priestly intercession for His people and His personal, visible return to the world according to His promise.
