Living Free Groups in NC Coffee Shop

xxxYesterday we learned that the owners of Jumpin' Jacks Coffee and Creamery in Albemarle, N.C., will host Living Free groups in their establishment.

This is a wonderful idea that was very popular in years past and is now making a resurgence. Businesses where people enjoy socializing are a natural place for Living Free groups to meet. Maybe there is an opportunity like this where you live.

Living Free in Texas Prison

In addition to helping Christians in local churches, Living Free groups are conducted in prisons and jails across the United States and in other countries, too. Just today we received this report from Chuck Redger, a longtime Living Free faculty member who is now on staff at Christian Life Assembly in Lubbock, Texas.

Last Tuesday evening we had our first LF meeting in the Formby Unit in Plainview, TX. John Baker, a layperson from our church, and I started with the LF Seminar. We had 11 inmates plus 2 chaplains attending. The inmates were open as they answered questions and madegood comments. Our goal is to have the inmates conduct groups under our supervision.

Lifeline Connection Making a Difference

Scott County (Kentucky) Lifeline Connection (SCLC) was formed in the spring of 2008 after contact with the Family Court revealed a need for such a ministry. By summer, 20 volunteers from various churches were ready to lead groups. In only three years, 400 persons have been in the groups with impressive results. In 2010 SCLC was chosen from nominations by members of the 14th Judicial Circuit Family Court Council for the Making a Difference in Children’s Lives Award.

SCLC is such an effective ministry that one judge stated that Lifeline Connection is the only program that she refers people to that she can see definite changes in people’s lives. She says that when they reappear before her court, they are not the same people. She says I don’t fully know all that you do but I do know Lifeline Connection is making a difference.

Dennis is a member of the Living Free faculty and has helped other Lifeline Connection groups begin ministry in their respective communities.

Lifeline Connection is a community-wide expression of the the Living Free ministry model. For information on how your community can begin, contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Living Free Seminar in Kutno, Poland

Richard Paciocha, reports from Poland that "We had a very good seminar on Insight Group in Kutno. There are 12 people who want to be facilitators and lead Turning Point Groups, and this Spring we want to meet and have a training on Concerned Persons."

Arabic Insight Group "A Big Blessing"

The Insight Group was a big blessing for all the guys. Each of our six participants shared that the material touched their lives, and that they saw themselves changing as the group progressed.

We received this exciting report during a Skype conversation with the leader of the Living Free ministry in an Arabic-speaking congregation in Jerusalem. Now, they are asking for more groups! Currently, we have the Living Freee video training and the Insight Group translated. We will help them with more groups in Arabic as soon as funding is available.

Today's Living Free News

  • 2013 Living Free Outcomes Results

    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!

  • 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."

    Blessings,

    Jean de Dieu
