What are Freedom Groups?
Freedom groups at Next Level Church are an in-depth look at “Who we are” as Christ followers. We believe no matter where we are in our relationship with God, there is more for us here on earth beyond salvation! For each of us, our identity should be secure as God’s sons and daughters, but there are things that keep us from truly understanding and experiencing this.
In our Freedom Groups, we will look at our past and present through self-awareness to see if there are things holding us back from the future that God has prepared for us. Freedom Groups are not just about knowledge acquisition, but taking the knowledge we acquire and allowing our lives to be transformed through the love of the Father, the power of Jesus and the guidance of the Holy Spirit. The goal is to learn and experience how we can fight off Satan’s attempts to entangle us in sin and instead embrace our identity as sons and daughters of God who are growing in an intimate relationship with Him as Father!
How do Relational Network Pastors Join?
Freedom Groups for Relational Network members are offered two times a year. All members are sent a detailed email invitation to join. The groups meet on-line and are lead by other Relational Network pastors.
Network pastors and ministry couples who actively participate in and complete their own Freedom Group may decide that they would like to bring the Freedom Group experience to their church. The Relational Network Team works with pastors and provides resources. After completing their Freedom Group all network members should see a new section on their dashboard entitled "Launching Freedom at Your Church". If this section is missing from your dashboard please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Those who want to lead a Freedom group at their church participate in a short preparatory session. Completion of training opens up access to the "Freedom Leader" section of the Relational Network dashboard.
