Freedom Appointment

We are pleased to hear that you desire to have a Freedom Appointment using the Steps to Freedom in Christ. In order to prepare for an appointment, please take note of the following:

• Complete the Freedom Appointment Form, attached below, as completely and accurately as possible and return to Set Free Ministries in order to process your request. This information will be shared only with your prayer team that will be assisting during your freedom appointment.
NOTE: Any information that you share will be guarded with the strictest confidentiality.

• Please plan on at least a five-hour block of time to complete the process in one appointment. We suggest you bring a lunch. Coffee and water are provided.

• Prepare yourself with prayer and God’s Word. It would be good to study the verses that correspond to the Who Am I? Statements (found in both Victory Over the Darkness and the Bondage Breaker).

We always have an encourager and a prayer partner involved in each Freedom Appointment. They have been through special training to meet the requirements for a freedom appointment.

Please indicate what day(s) work best for you and we will try to schedule accordingly. Freedom Appointments are facilitated on Mondays through Thursdays starting at 9:00 am.

It is not unusual to experience increased spiritual oppression before an appointment. The enemy does not want you to experience the fullness of freedom, but God assures you that you have authority to resist those possible attacks in Jesus’ name (James 4:7; 1 John 4:4b). We will be in prayer with and for you. It may be helpful to read or review the books Victory Over the Darkness and/or The Bondage Breaker by Neil Anderson. The process that we will use can be found in chapter 13 of The Bondage Breaker. Invisible War by Chip Ingram is another excellent book to read or review to help you better understand spiritual warfare.

It will be an honor for us to serve you in this way and to be part of what Christ is doing and will continue to do in your life. We look forward to meeting with you soon!
