Set Free Christian Fellowship
Set Free Christian Fellowship was Founded in July 1997 by Pastor Chad & Debi McComas. This non-denominational fellowship has been the birth place of all the ministries listed here under the Set Free Ministry banner. God’s original vision to Pastor Chad was to “set people free.” Using God’s Word as the foundation for the “truth” that Jesus taught, people are being set free from condemnation, shame, guilt and fear. Many are finding a new personal relationship with God that is refreshing and vibrant.
New Life Christian Fellowship
New Life Christian Fellowship joined Set Free Ministry in October 2005. New Life’s unique mission is to provide a safe, understanding environment for those coming to God out of their addictive lifestyle. Pastor Harold and his wife Dena Nelson have built this ministry one rescued soul at a time. Miracles take place at New Life! The Addiction Recovery Center allowed their in-house treatment participants the opportunity to come to church each week as part of their recovery program.
The Christian Journal
The Christian Journal newspaper is a monthly publication that Set Free acquired in 2000. Today The Christian Journal is a monthly paper with 18,000 in circulation in Southern Oregon and Northern California. The paper’s purpose is to communicate God’s love and grace to people; to inspire and to encourage. We also provide display ads to support Christian businesses, churches and ministries to promote their work. We send 300+ free papers to inmates across the country. The inmate subscriptions are a free program that is sponsored by our Light Walk Prison Ministry.
Pop Open Cards
These pop open cards are being used locally to encourage people with the Word of God and are being sold across the country. We are literally selling tens of thousands of these cards to excited individuals and institutions to use in their personal ministry work. The cards are designed with a printed promise from God’s Word that is only revealed when it is “popped” open. The recipient is touched and encouraged by God’s promise. We are told that God’s Word will not return void.
Rogue Retreat Homeless Housing Ministry was started by Set Free in 1998, and today has 42 apartments for its program. Rogue Retreat has life-skill meetings on Monday evenings where our families meet to assess progress and get support in life skills and more. Lives are being changed and as a result some amazing people from Rogue Retreat are serving various local churches as well as the community because of the opportunities and grace they have received. These families are experiencing restoration as they submit to the program’s guidelines, leading to a more stable and Christ-centered life.
The SOZO Personal Healing Ministry
The SOZO (Personal Healing Ministry Sessions) on Friday nights, is one of our newest ministries and perhaps one of the most life-changing ones. We are seeing many emotional and spiritual healings take place in these sessions as people are being set free from past abuse, anger, fear and dysfunction. Many find amazing freedom after one session. It is part of Set Free’s commitment to setting the captives free as outlined in Isaiah 61. To make an appointment call our office at: 541-773-4004.
Set Free started Celebrate Recovery meetings (A Christian 12-Step Recovery Ministry) to serve the valley in February 1998. Each Thursday at 6:30 pm Rogue Valley residents come to find help with their hurts, habits and hang-ups. These meetings share Biblical insights to overcoming any and all addictive behavior. 12-Step study groups have helped men and women find the freedom they are looking for. Celebrate Recovery has served thousands through the years
God’s Food Pantry
God’s Food Pantry started when a single mother of five tithed her food stamps in 1997. The food filled up a small cupboard. Today as part of the Access Food Pantry organization God’s Food Pantry serves up to 150 people a week (nearly 7,000 people a year) with 3-5 days of food. The needs are great and continue to grow as we serve families who need a little extra help. We don’t have enough storage now and have to turn food away! We serve Fridays from 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm.
