About the Living Free Small Groups


Practical and Effective
Living Free small groups meet people where they are in life. Use the groups to plant a new church or grow your existing ministry by enlisting unreached people. Some churches have used Living Free small groups for more than ten years and each of these churches has reached hundreds, even thousands of new people.

Benefits Everyone
This serious, life changing small group ministry is designed to help everyone. These groups are for you, whether you want to learn how to minister to people trapped in a problem, how to prevent a life-controlling problem, or how to overcome your own life-controlling problem.

Range of Topics
The small group curriculum topics include developing Christian character, anger, conflict resolution, addictions, eating disorders, depression, grief and loss, sexual purity, codependency, parenting, life as a single Christian, same sex attraction, caring for aging or infirm loved-ones, overcoming disappointments and setbacks, authentic Christianity, grief for children, dealing with prejudice, family violence, 12-Steps, knowing God, and other topics. New topics are continually being developed.

The groups all follow a format that includes times of Introduction, Self-Awareness, Spiritual Awareness, and Application. Participants each have a workbook to prepare themselves for the next meeting. Meetings are designed to last 75 minutes, but the time is flexible depending on the number of participants. Groups contain a maximum of 12 participants.

  • Testimony from Rwanda

    God does heal the broken-hearted and binds up their wounds (Psalm 147:3). Read the following testimony we received today regarding today's Living Free Every Day devotion provided by Living Free ministries.

    "Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, Thank you so much for the message of forgiveness. Jesus Christ recommend us to forgive if we want to be forgiven. For us Rwandans, we are experiencing forgiveness and now we are free from the bondage of unforgiveness. When you forgive, even physically, you are released. I am telling you this because I have forgiven those who killed my parents and relatives. But, ask to be led by the Holy Spirit who will enable you to forgive those who sin against you."
