Our Mission & Vision

Freedom Christian Ministry was placed into the hearts of Pastor Aaron Rushing and Pastor Sherri Rushing as a ministry that would reach the people of Gwinnett County and beyond through spirit filled teaching enabling individuals to develop intimate relationships with God based upon the vision to see the body of Christ free from the bondage of the enemy so they can be all God has called them to be.

Pastor Aaron & Assistant Pastor Sherri along with 8 founding members secured a location in Lawrenceville, GA and the first service was held on January 2, 2005.  In April of the same year, Freedom celebrated the dedication of the church and the installation of Aaron Rushing, as senior pastor.  In the first year, the church grew to 71 members.
 
During the first year of service, Freedom Christian Ministry not only nurtured its growing family through the Worship Service, Sunday School, Bible Study but also started the programs that focus on men, women, youth and the community evolved: Man-to-Man Christian Fellowship, Living in Freedom Everyday (L.I.F.E. Women’s Ministry), The Freedom Youth Network which includes The Shining Stars (5 year olds and younger) the Stars formerly the Ten-Agers (6 years old to 12 years old) and the Supernovas formerly The Lounge (13 years old to 17 years old) the Freedom Praise Team, Dance Ministry, Ushers and Greeters Teams and several Family and Friends events such as a Game Night, Bowling, Movie and Pizza day, Memorial Day celebration, Octoberfest and our first Christmas Pageant.
