Freedom Seekers was established in January of 2005. We are now ministering to over 500 people every week. We have witnessed thousands making a commitment to Jesus Christ. During this time, we have housed and assisted over 1000 individuals coming out of the Department of Corrections, local jails, and off the streets. Our ministry focuses on outreach to our communities for individuals and families in need of recovery from drug and alcohol abuse, addictions, poverty, and hopelessness. In addition to our ministry in Carroll County jail, we are beginning jail ministry in Benton and Washington counties where we provide recovery, spiritual, and community re-entry support. We have witnessed thousands of decisions for Jesus Christ over the years. We are a faith-based organization.
In 2006 we opened our first Freedom Seekers Restoration Center in Blue Eye, Missouri. We use Restoration Centers for worship services, individual counseling, Celebrate Recovery meetings, community outreach, and much more. In 2007 we opened our first transitional living home, The Freedom House, in Lampe, Missouri. The Freedom House was primarily for men coming out of the Department of Corrections and men in our area in need of recovery.
In 2011, we joined Harvest Assembly, in Oak Grove, Arkansas, where Senior Pastors Todd and Karin Roger have welcomed and supported us and we are blessed to be a part of a dynamic and growing church.
In 2014 God expanded our territory. We opened a new Restoration Center in Berryville, Arkansas. In 2015 we opened David's House of Hope. This is a men's transitional living home that is located in Berryville, Arkansas. In 2017 we opened BEVS House. These are sober living homes that provide long-term support and structure for men and women recovering from addiction and trauma-related disorders. Because recovering from addiction and trauma is an inherently difficult, often painful process, we strive to provide our clients with a comfortable, safe, and supportive environment. We assist men, women, and their families as they discover the joy, power, and rewards that await them in a relationship with Jesus Christ and His plan for healing and recovery.
