Q: What is it? 

A: Freedom 252 is an in-depth leadership development experience that we’ve designed to be biblical, practical and transformational. 

Q: Why are we doing this?  

A: We believe ministry is done best when it involves “all of us” not just “some of 
Our church is growing rapidly. In order to keep moving forward, at the pace God’s favor is blessing us, we need to train more leaders. Our Dream Team is full of leaders ready to be developed and empowered to serve at new levels of influence in our church family. We want to intentionally make Jesus’ last command (developing disciples) our first priority!    

Q: Why the name 252? 

A:  Our foundational verse is Luke 2:52 “And Jesus grew in wisdom, stature, and in favor with God and man.” If even Jesus had to continually grow in these four areas (mentally, physically, relationally and spiritually) we figure this is a great growth plan for us to build upon! 

Q: Who’s coming?  

A: Our team has hand-picked and personally invited a select group of leaders and potential leaders from our Dream Team ranging in age from sixteen to well beyond their sixties.  

Q:  What will our time together look like while maintaining social distancing? 

A:   Our team will post a video teaching each week. 252 Leaders will have all week to listen/watch the message and take notes. 

B.    Each Monday night 8-9pm we will have a large group Zoom call to recap the teaching and utilize breakout rooms for small group "table discussions". 

C.    We will memorize a Scripture verse each week that coincides with each teaching. 

D.    Each month we will read a leadership book together. 

E.    Each 252 leader will be paired up with a prayer partner to gain weekly support. 

Q:  Where & when will we meet? 

A:  Zoom Large Group Recap and Breakout rooms for fast-paced and provoking discussions

Q:  Is this open to each of our campuses? 

A:  Yes! We’ve invited leaders and will have a representation from each of our campuses. Our group discussions and connection times will be so much richer as we are able to connect with friends we don’t regularly see on the weekends. 

Q:  How many weeks is this experience?

A: 13-weeks, February 8 - May 3. 

Q:   What will I do with this training & development?  

A:  Our hope and desire is to see you serve and lead at new levels of influence and effectiveness in your home, job and on our Dream Team. The material we will cover will certainly be applicable in multiple areas of your life!  

Q:  Can I invite someone to join me? 

A:  We have limited space but would still like to make this a possibility. If you have someone you would like to invite into this experience with you, simply email Josh Mitchell jmitchell@myfreedom.org and our team will help with all the details.
