About Freedom Session
Freedom Session is a proven healing-discipleship program for people who are ready to look honestly at how they deal with life’s challenges and discover the abundant life God intended them to live. Those who complete Freedom Session consistently describe it as the most significant growing experience in their Christian journey.
Freedom session offers practical strategies to deal with real issues such as pornography, broken relationships, sexual woundedness and abuse, depression, anger, fear and various forms of addiction. Beneath these “symptoms” is most likely a wounded and empty heart, looking for hope and meaning.
As Jesus heals the heart, unhealthy and destructive ways previously used to escape the pain become less and less attractive. Shame loses its grip and the lies that once sought to destroy are replaced by God’s truth and the practical skills to live accordingly. This is the pathway to true and lasting freedom.
Freedom Session has proven effective for men and women from every walk of life, every economic level and virtually every area of woundedness. And it is equally effective for those with little church experience and those who’ve attended church their entire lives.
Effective discipleship involves leading an authentic and examined life. Therefore, emotional and relational healing should be considered a normative step in every Christian’s discipleship journey.
Freedom Session is likely for you!
Freedom Session is a journey, a proven pathway divided into three equally important stages. Those who experience the greatest levels of healing and freedom embrace the entire journey outlined below:
20 weeks – Workbooks 1 & 2
This is the foundational component of Freedom Session where participants explore and find freedom from the past – pain they’ve experienced, pain they’ve caused, resentment, guilt, shame and lies. As healing occurs, false beliefs and unhealthy behavioral patterns are broken.
Foundations includes two 10-week units: “Facing the Truth” and “Finding Freedom.”
8 weeks – Workbook 3
Authentic Living continues the freedom journey by applying the same tools learned in Foundations to present pain/conflict and future challenges. New habits are formed. A God-inspired vision is birthed and a plan to live it out established.
Churches offering Foundations almost always include Authentic Living as an immediate and expected follow-up.
90 days – Self-Directed Discipleship
The classic Authentic Life Journal helps individuals deepen their personal relationship with the Holy Spirit over a period of 90 days. Included are some favorite Freedom Session life tools, a prayer record journal and a proven structure for meaningful accountability triads.
While originally designed for Freedom Session “alumni,” churches are using the journal as a basic discipleship tool for all followers of Jesus.
Who is it for?
Breaking free starts by inviting Jesus into our hurts, disappointments and buried pain.
We have all been broken to some degree, which means we all need some measure of healing. The issues we face are likely not the real problem; they’re symptoms of a wounded and empty heart, searching for hope and meaning. Freedom Session is for anyone who is ready to rise above past hurts and unhealthy habits and embrace the purposes for which God created them.
Foundations will lead you through that journey. Authentic Living continues the story.
Why your Church needs it
Twenty percent of marriages end in divorce; 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men have been sexually abused; pornography enslaves our men and women. Low self-worth is epidemic; depression is on the rise as is workaholism, food addiction, eating disorders and a deep sense of angst that something is missing.
People are hungry for the abundant life Jesus promises. We need to break down the gospel and practically apply biblical truth in the areas our people are dealing with. Freedom Session equips churches of all sizes to do this, and do it well.
“Freedom Session is more than a program. It is designed to facilitate life change in individuals who are searching for a way out of the bondage of sin in many areas. I have spent time with Ken and found his passion in this area to be unequaled. I so appreciate his personal commitment to make this work in the life of the local church. Freedom Session has impacted our entire church and community greatly.”
“Ken Dyck, author of Freedom Session, is a trusted friend and respected ministry leader, deeply committed to Christ and seeking to live his life with authenticity and courage. He is an effective and sensitive communicator of the gospel and has a discipleship message that our churches desperately need to hear. Freedom Session is a thoroughly Christ-centered ministry. I have personally witnessed the life transformation that happens in people who commit to the Freedom Session journey and I recommend it widely.”
Freedom Session helps every Christian cooperate with the Holy Spirit to get to those hidden places in our lives that need to be redeemed and cleansed so that the fruit and gifts of the Spirit can freely operate in our lives. I can personally see Freedom Session benefiting many, many people in the body of Christ.
