Wellsprings of Freedom

The River Wellsprings of Freedom ministry focuses on helping people find inner healing and freedom.  People struggling with issues that have held them captive, for years, are finding new hope.
Our team is trained in spiritual warfare techniques that are releasing people from the bondage of fear, anxiety, depression and hundreds of other paralyzing issues which keep us from reaching our true potential in Christ.
