In the past, we have served in New York, Colorado, Bahamas, Chicago as well as Miami and Christ Church Pompano Beach campus ministries.
"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit."
Summer is the perfect opportunity to go out into our community, state, nation, and/or world and truly be the hand's and feet of Jesus.
THIS summer, Freeway is sending teams to the mission fields of South Florida and San Francisco.
