Pastor to Pastor
Launching a proven healing-discipleship ministry in your church is easier than you think. And we’re here to help!
Freedom Session has potential to become one of the most important discipleship ministries and strategic leadership “training engines” in your church. Larger churches often assign a pastoral staff member to Direct Freedom Session. Most Freedom Session ministries are directed by unpaid Christ-followers with leadership gifts and a passion to see others experience freedom and healing.
In this section, we share a four-phase Best Practices strategy from interest to launch.
As a pastor or church leader your role…
is to find a healing-discipleship program you trust, one that protects your staff and volunteers from getting in over their heads. I [Ken] wrote Freedom Session during a season of significant church growth and intense ministry need and I fully understand your concerns. We have worked hard to create a leadership structure of Facilitators whose role is to lead, guide and support participants through the Freedom Session healing process without moving into a counseling role. We have carefully written and filmed quality leadership training videos and I have personally written weekly leadership briefings for every session and every discussion question.
Pastors and leaders from over twenty denominations along with registered Christian counselors / psychologists recommend Freedom Session as a reliable and powerful discipleship resource.
We’re confident you will appreciate our respect for your pastoral leadership. (I am a pastor – I understand the challenges you face.) And we’re confident you will appreciate the results.

If you are intrigued but still not convinced, I personally invite you to run a six week Freedom Session “pilot” with a few leaders you trust.

Now it’s time to put your plan in motion. This phase lasts between 14 and 90 days, and addresses the following action points:

- promotion: inviting the right participants
- resources: ordering the right workbooks
It’s time to launch!
The opening Session 01 – Why Am I Here? is specifically designed for those who are already committed to the 20 weeks of FOUNDATIONS and those who are undecided. It’s an interactive and fun event.
Subsequent sessions consists of a ~45 minute large group video teaching, one hour (gender specific) small group discussion and a 1.5 hour homework component.
The honesty, transparency, humility, brokenness of the Freedom Session grads is a true picture of the church. I’m convinced the church would be even more authentic and real if everyone were to experience Freedom Session. We’re taking our entire staff through it.
I’ve watched Freedom Session transform hundreds of people’s lives with my own eyes making them freer, authentic and leaps and bounds more mature in Jesus. I’ll always remember the first time I met someone who had gone through Freedom Session. As she shared her story with me, I walked away and said the way she came out of that is just radically different than others I’ve seen. This thing is different!
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.
