Church Highlight: Freedom Church – Noblesville, IN

Church Highlight: Freedom Church – Noblesville, IN

Freedom Church, located in Noblesville, Indiana was birthed in 2009. Freedom Church cares about one thing more than anything else, making Jesus famous. They are a family of imperfect individuals that have found hope in Jesus and simply want as many people as possible to experience that exact same freedom. They want to make Jesus famous.

Freedom church was birthed out of a heart and desperation to see Luke 4:18 fulfilled in the lives of people. Non-believers and believers, rich and poor, young and old, in reality it doesn’t matter to us, because all people matter to Jesus. Captives released, blind see, the oppressed will be set free! God’s instruction to us was simple; don’t build a church, build people. Luke 4:18 “The Spirit of the LORD is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free.

Lead Pastor, Tim Winton, was born and raised in Kokomo, Indiana. His third grade teacher told him that he was dumb and would never amount to anything in life. This affected his view on life moving forward, which all changed on August 8, 1991, at 8:10 pm with a bottle of prescription pills in his hand ready to take his own  life when he heard Jesus say, “Life and death is before you, choose”. Pastor Tim chose Life and surrendered his world to God that night.

He met his wife Leann in early 1992 and were married in August, 1993. He then enlisted in the USAF thinking that would be his career; however, God had other plans. He served for four and half years until he was medically discharged.

Going into the ministry from that point, Tim and Leann served as children pastors, youth pastors, young adult pastors and as associate pastors. God led them to birth their first church in the Dayton, Ohio area in 2003 and they served that community until 2009. Then, later that year, God birthed what is now known as Freedom Church.

Pastor Tim and Leann have a heart for God and His presence and desire to connect people to God and others. Their mission is simple: Bring people to Jesus, train them and release them to do the same.

Please join us this week as we celebrate and lift up our friends at Freedom Church in prayer! We are excited about all God is doing and will continue to do in and through them!
