Living Free Directory of Ministries using Living Free Material
We are excited to announce the 2013 Living Free Outcomes Research Findings. Over the last three years, we have collected questionnaires from participants in several different ministries in many different states. This year we gathered the questionnaires from 5 different ministries who are reaching out to their communities through non-residential support group settings in 5 states. There were 181 people in 22 different groups represented.
The data confirms the effectiveness of Living Free because of what God is doing through His Word, His Spirit and His people. The data reflects that no matter the location or facilitator, lives are being transformed and families restored by God through many local Living Free and Living Free Community ministries. We give God all the glory!

Who is helped by Living Free ministry?
All types of persons are helped by Living Free, not just the addicted and the down and out. Here are a few examples of people who have benefitted.
A pastoral leader in a mega-church received help when he admitted to being overcome by a life-controlling problem. His participation in Living Free groups was an important aspect of the more than two years he spent in restoring his personal, family, and ministry relationships.
A federal investigator who was struggling with alcohol dependency and his wife who was struggling with depression found hope and freedom in Living Free groups meeting in their church.
Persons without resources in communities in our country are finding help for their life-controlling problems in free community-based Living Free nonresidential programs.
A transnational ministry
Living Free materials exist in English, Spanish, Chinese, Portuguese, French, Arabic, Russian and several other major languages. Work is planned for versions in Dari, Farsi, Urdu, and other languages for ministry in some politically sensitive areas of the world.
I want to thank you for Living Free. It is such a blessing in Novokuznetsk. I think that almost all the people who have come to the Lord from the families of the drug addicts came to the Lord through this ministry. If we didn‚Äôt have it we wouldn‚Äôt know how to reach the mothers, sisters, and wives who come to our church with addicted loved-ones. Janet Bantseev, Russia
Living Free Academy: to serve anyone, anywhere, at anytime
Next month the first training course will debut online to make training accessible for persons anywhere there is internet access.
A Movement of Allied Ministries that is Making a Difference
Over one million have been helped so far. But tens of millions in the United States and thousands of millions worldwide are more open to the message of Christ as they struggle with problems bigger than themselves.
You can join this movement by:
Investing your life to begin a local Living Free Community ministry.
Join hundreds of other leaders across the country who are working locally and seeing first-hand individuals, families, and communities being transformed as God works through them and other volunteers in ministry.
We also have a Living Free group that happens there in the community, and we are currently raising up the leaders from within that community‚Ä¶. It‚Äôs exciting to think of the day that we have empowered these community members in a way that we can move to another neighborhood and start to see God do the same things there! Andrew Chalmers, Columbus, Ga.
We will help you launch a high-impact community ministry too. Call 800.879.4770 or email info@LivingFree.org today.
