Freedom Conference

 * * * * * * *

Our Freedom Conference Beginnings 

In March 2018, we held our first ever, area-wide Freedom Conference.  Dr. Rodney Hogue and Sherrie Saltzgaber blessed us by kicking off that first year. They are both from Beltway Park church (operating from two campuses) in Abilene, as our first speakers.

Rodney is a conference speaker and a Global Awakening teacher and yearly travels to Mozambique, Africa to work with Iris Ministries. He has previously served as Senior Pastor of Community of Grace since the 1990's. Starting in the 1970's, Rodney got involved in the Gospel ministry and was involved in Youth and College ministries, as well as pastoring churches in Washington state for eight years. He is committed to the restoration of the saints into wholeness in Christ.

Sherrie has been serving as a pastor since 2002 and teaching the word of God since 1981. She leads the Freedom, Healing and Altar/Prayer ministries. Her responsibilities include pastoral counseling, pastoral care, as well as training and equipping the saints in areas of freedom, healing, and deliverance. Her ministry activates believers to hear the voice of God and release strategies to win spiritual battles. Sherrie also travels nationally and internationally imparting the truth that sets captives free. 

Due to the interest from our 2018 Freedom Conference, we decided to continue encouraging others to grow and activate liberty in their lives by making this a recurring event. As of right now, The Way Bible Church offers this as a FREE service to you. There is no cost for those who come. It's our hope that you experience newer levels of freedom and walk out who you were truly designed to be. 

For those who attend a Group Life at TWBC, our motto is: A free life promotes a healthy life which leads to an impactful Group Life. 

 But regardless of where your church home is (or is not), Freedom Ministry is here to serve you.

 You do not need to be a part of The Way Bible Church to attend.

What is Freedom Ministries


Freedom Ministry works with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit to help you live an overcoming and abundant life. Your past experiences, mistakes, or lies of the enemy do not have to define you.  We offer both one-on-one, private prayer sessions and a community-wide Freedom Conference in March. It is our hope that the yokes of bondage be broken as a result of you encountering God. 


What We believe about Freedom


We believe freedom is the assurance of God's truth operating in a believer's life.  From a place of liberty, you'll be better equipped to live in the fullness of who God has called you to be and experience a closer relationship with Him, His Son, and the Holy Spirit.
