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.
Caroline joined our team in 2017 and is the first contact for Freedom Session Canada and Freedom Session International. She is available for coaching Freedom Session directors and various speaking engagements.
Caroline and her husband, Jim are dog lovers with two of their own. They enjoy relaxing with family and friends over a meal, a cup of tea or a walk (dogs included of course) and treasure every moment with their adult kids.
Chris & Crystal Pettit
Chris and Crystal first registered for Freedom Session during a low point in their life and marriage. God met them profoundly and they have led Freedom Session in their local church for the past five years.
They joined our team in 2015 and in 2018, established Freedom Session USA. Chris and Crystal are available for Freedom Session coaching and speaking engagements. Chris is also an anointed worship leader.
They have two amazing daughters – Ceci and Julia and enjoy family vacations and swimming parties with friends.
Spanish Translation Team Leader: Jessica Galvin
Jessica leads the team of quality volunteers who are translating Freedom Session into Spanish – Conociendo Libertad.
She (and her husband Abner) are key leaders in the Spanish ministry of a growing local church and will be helping us with the Conociendo Libertad video teaching release. They will also assist us in the production of Spanish video testimonies.
Isaac is one of those guys who is given a 20,000 foot digital or technical challenge and mulls it over while riding his motorcycle…until the solution is clear.
Isaac works full time in his local church and joined our team during the Covid-19 crisis to help us find solutions to the new normal. One of his top priorities is to minimize any hindrances or barriers to others finding freedom and healing through Jesus.
Nicole is responsible to reflect the heart of Freedom Session in our printed, digital and online materials. Ken & Bonnie met Nicole while Ken served on the pastoral staff where Nicole continues to work full time.
Nicole took Freedom Session as a participant in 2020 and has sort of evolved into a FSIM team member “on call” with us. She is an expert in creative graphic design and editing. She has a servant’s heart and is always up for a challenge.
Lianna Nevraumont (and her husband Pat) were part of a core church planting team with Ken & Bonnie in 1998. They reconnected in 2020 and, when the FSIM Treasurer role came open, Lianna volunteered.
Lianna brings administrative skills. a deep passion for prayer and a servant’s heart.
She understands confidentiality and the importance of bookkeeping integrity.
Ken & Bonnie Dyck
Ken and Bonnie provide leadership to the Canadian and US teams and are currently working on content revisions that will more effectively minister in a post-Covid environment. They are also working on a Spanish translation.
Ken is available to pastors to discussion Freedom Session strategies in the local church and speaking engagements / retreats. To request Ken to speak in your church or ministry, please inquire.
To connect with one of our team. please contact the appropriate Directors in your location (see above).
If Ken or Bonnie need to respond directly, your email will be forwarded to them.
