Isaiah 61:1 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because He has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,to proclaim freedom for the captives,and release from darkness the prisoners.
It is the desire of Freedom in Christ T & T to see the Body of Christ walk in freedom on a daily basis. The power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ sets men and women free from the chains of bondage spiritually, emotionally, mentally and physically.
Our ministry team consists of Dr Christopher Young (Dental Surgeon), Pastor Michelle Young (Founder of LIFE in life Ministry) who was recently credentialed as a Minister of the Gospel and Pastoral Church leader under the Open Bible Standard Churches of Trinidad & Tobago (www.obsctt) on May 3rd 2015. The Youngs' were recently named Regional Directors for FICMI for Trinidad & Tobago and the Caribbean.
Eph 4:12-15 also reinforces that our vision and mission for Trinidad & Tobago and the Caribbean includes the equipping and building of the saints.
Through LIFE in life Ministry we have taken the message of FICM into the prisons. There are now trained teams that visit the women and juveniles twice a week in the prisons and this has been a resounding success. Glory to God! We are presently submitting proposals that have been requested by the Prison authorities for more visits that will allow us more individual Discipleship Counseling time with the inmates, as well as a proposal to the prison that houses the most violent male criminals. We already have a team of men who are already trained and equipped in the message and methodology of FICM to take this into the prison for the most violent. Truly God continues to confirm that the Great Commission is meant for those inside and outside the walls of the prison.
Chris and Michelle have travelled to the UK to attend the FICMI Leadership conference for Regional Directors May 10-13th. It is with a view of strengthening relationships with these country leaders and sharing and learning from them that convinced us to go to the UK. We desire to bring back to the Caribbean renewed ideas to strengthen strategy and direction as we resolve to launch FICM throughout Trinidad & Tobago and the Caribbean.
We have founded another ministry called Caribbean Freedom Ministries which will assist in taking the FICM throughout the Caribbean. In July there will be a one day workshop on Discipleship Counseling in Grenada and in the latter part of the year Pastor Dalkeith and Claudette Bennett will launch FICM in Jamaica.
It is clear to us that the Spirit of God is hovering over the warm Caribbean waters and truly FICM is the missile launched into enemy territory as we seek to answer Is 61:1-3, Matt 28:19-20 awaiting the return of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ as He returns for a Church that is unspotted and unwrinkled.
