Live Free Ministry
Live Free Ministry is a network of prayer ministers trained in praying with others for spiritual freedom. Live Free operates under the pastoral oversight of the Catholic church and our members are primarily Catholics, although we welcome cooperation with Christians of other denominations. We hold an endorsement from the Diocese of Lansing.

From Dr. Ralph Martin, Renewal Ministries, author of Fulfillment of All Desire
I would like to express my admiration and appreciation for Live Free Ministry. Many of us connected with Renewal Ministries have benefited from this apostolate of teaching, training, and prayer ministry and will continue to serve on Live Free teams and enjoy join with them in the great privilege of participating in Jesus’ work of setting free the captives.
From Dr. Mary Healy, Sacred Heart Major Seminary, author of Healing: Bringing God's Gift of Mercy to the World
Deliverance ministry is one of the gifts given by the Holy Spirit to carry out the Church’s evangelizing mission, and it is especially needed for the times we are living in. I heartily support Live Free Ministry, which has developed a solid way of praying for spiritual freedom in accord with Catholic teaching. Live Free is making a valuable contribution to the new evangelization, and I am greatly edified by their generosity and their passion to see people step into the full freedom that Christ died to give us.
From Peter Herbeck, author and radio host of "Crossing the Goal"
I’m honored to be able to offer this endorsement on behalf of Live Free Ministry. The Live Free apostolate has been an effective instrument of God's grace to bring about healing and freedom in the lives of many people suffering from various levels of spiritual bondage and oppression.
This ministry is a gift to the Catholic Church.
From Dan Burke, Avila Institute
I have reviewed Live Free Ministry's formation materials and statement on lay deliverance ministry and affirm its soundness.
I am supportive of how John and Michelle conduct their ministry, which is based on Unbound with modifications that situate it solidly within a Catholic context under the supervision and authority of the dioceses and parishes in which they work.
