When I read about the Foundations of Freedom classes about a year ago, my stomach was doing somersaults. It sounded intriguing and exciting. On one hand, I wanted to find out more about this freedom thing. Yet on the other hand, what if I have to reveal something about myself, my failures or my insecurities? I allowed fear and trepidation to creep into my soul. Needless to say, I did not sign up.

So when the classes were publicized again for April 2016, I jumped at the chance to attend. I was still a bit uncertain of what the classes would reveal, yet I was ready to dive into finding out more about how to live free. As a recent participant and graduate in the 5-week Foundations of Freedom classes this past May, I knew God’s hand was instrumental in my being there.

Everyone deserves to experience freedom as God intended. Freedom is a process and for many of us it may take a lifetime to understand how to truly live free. The Foundations of Freedom classes are designed to equip you with the resources and tools necessary to begin opening doors you may not have wanted to venture through.

Since the completion of the classes, I have joined Freedom Ministry as the coordinator for the Freedom Continuation Group, also known as “A Step Beyond.” This group meets once a month for those who have completed the Foundations of Freedom classes or seminar. Each meeting focuses on identity and destiny. You will attain a greater understanding of how to gain and maintain freedom in Christ. We look forward to this time together with you as we continue on this journey called freedom.
