  • Form Your Team

    It is impractical to think the ministerial staff alone can deal with the hurts and staggering needs that most congregations face. In truth, this work should be the responsibility of the entire local body of Christ.

  • Launch Ministry

    The basic group in Living Free’s system of small groups is the Insight Group. The Insight Group is a meaningful nine-week experience to help your entire church family and community.


Success Stories

More testimonies from Living Free Participants

Living Free is so incredible, as it opens each participant's eyes to the practical application of the Scripture. I can honestly say this is a ministry that raises a standard of truth and transparency. Sometimes I am simply blown away by what God is doing through Living Free.

... I eat, drink and sleep Living Free. Why? Because it works."

I'm currently going to your Living Free class and it has helped me a lot with the daily struggles that life has thrown my way and I just wanted to say thanks for everything that you all do for people in tough situations like me. You all have helped open my eyes and my heart and helped me realize I don't want to live the way I was living anymore."

    Virtual Groups, A Very Real Option

    Many have asked about Living Free’s online groups and often the questions are the same, is this really a group? Are group members really connecting? Are most group members consistent in meeting together on Zoom?

    It was easy to be skeptical until we had no choice. Because of COVID, we started offering online groups to meet the need during the pandemic. Would people be just going through the motions on a screen, with no real connection? 

    Kristina, a facilitator of the online Understanding Depression group had this to say; “You know I’m not a fan of Zoom, and it does present a couple of challenges but I’m a fan of embracing the challenges and difficulties and making the best of them! It required a little extra work, but that’s ok.” Kristina provided additional visuals with YouTube, sent encouraging worship songs via e-mail, and offered diagrams to help the group.

    Road to Freedom Booklet

    It is exciting to offer our newest publication to all of our Living Free family here in the United States and around the world; Road to Freedom! It’s not really all that new, as we have been using parts of this booklet in our corrections ministries and the Living Free Plan has been offered to group members as a tool to help set goals and to know the Lord has a purpose for each life and to know the purpose of our Living Free groups.

    Our leadership team decided it was time to officially offer Road to Freedom to everyone, as many of our teams are working with inmates in corrections, new Christians, and those dealing with substance abuse.

    Living Free Academy - Online and On time!

    In 2019 Dan Strickland, President of Living Free had the vision to offer the Living Free seminar in a format that would be more comprehensive,
    more opportunity for interaction among participants, and long enough to absorb the vast amount of information compacted into just one 6 hour session presented in a live event.  With the help of Barbara Dodridge, online training was developed and introduced in February of 2019 called Living Free Academy.

    About 12 months later, all live training came to a halt due to COVID 19.
