Freedom Session for Pastors ONLY! 

October 17 – December 12

An amazing opportunity, consisting of 9 Tuesday mornings via zoom from Oct 17 through Dec 12, 2023 wrapping up with an in-person retreat on Jan 15-17 @ Stillwood Camp & Conference Centre, Cultus Lake, BC Canada.

Now your pastor can experience Freedom Session with other pastors guided by Dr. Justin Dennison (seasoned pastor, author, counselor, leadership (life) coach). Ken (FS Author) will be joining in person for the retreat.  This is a ONE-OFF opportunity that may not be offered again.

Registration is now OPEN; enrollment is limited.  Pastors will be placed in 6 person cohorts with others of similar life stage and pastoral position/responsibility. Open to pastors in Canada or the USA. Please share this with your Sr. Pastor and/or any associate pastors who might be interested.  

Cost: $999 + GST (CAD) which includes:

  • 4 volume workbook set ($79)
  • FS Church Ministry Resource Kit ($299;  If you already have one, you can gift this one)
  • FS mentorship/coaching and the experience itself
  • in-person retreat ($295/person based on 2 people/room and shared bathroom).

Note: upgrades to private motel room accommodation available for additional fee;  Transportation to/from retreat not included.

FS cohort experiences occur in gender-specific small groups. We are accepting registrations from male and female pastors and pastor’s wives who are active in ministry with their husbands.  Unfortunately, since we are already subsidizing the course/retreat, we are unable to offer discounts for couples.
