Meet the Team
In 2009, a small group of Freedom Session grads sensed God wanted to expand Freedom Session across North America and beyond. Freedom Session International (serving Canada) was birthed and later Freedom Session USA. Both share the same three-fold purpose:
- Inspire, train and equip churches in North America and beyond to offer effective, healing-discipleship ministries.
- Create and/or distribute Freedom Session materials into recovery homes, prisons, church plants with limited resources and/or ministry training schools.
- Translate and distribute Freedom Session materials into other languages / cultures in North America and around the world.
We’d like you meet our team.
Please also consider supporting our ministry with a one time generous gift or monthly support.
