Freedom13 is on a mission to rebuild dignity in the lives of those we serve.


Freedom13, founded on February 2, 2015, is on a mission to rebuild dignity in the lives of those we serve. Our theme verse (and why the number 13) is Galatians 5:13 (ESV) – “For you were called to freedom brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.” 


Jesus Christ is the reason for which Freedom13 Ministries exists. Its mission and functions represent the heart of God. Our resources and curriculum are based on the Word of God and follows the commands and teachings of Jesus Christ as outlined in the Bible. Who Jesus is, His life, death, resurrection and the way He lived His life – serving others, loving the poor, outcast, orphan, and stranger – serve as the lifeblood of Freedom13. We believe the best way to change our community is to be like Jesus in every way – to live the way He did, serve the way He served, and give our lives to the work of God’s kingdom.


We serve the community through jail ministry in Lincoln and Ouachita Parish. We offer workshops for students and parents emphasizing the reality of technology, social media, and the impact smartphones have on mental health.  We also offer residential recovery resources for women who need a fresh start in life. Regular outreach events include Prayer Walks, White as Snow: A Queen’s Celebration, and Called to Freedom.
