Freedom Church was founded in 2003 when a small and diverse group of men and women sharing little beyond a big dream began meeting weekly in a home for prayer and Bible study. From this humble beginning we grew to a weekly Monday night meeting, and later started meeting on Sundays. Two sister churches partnered together to help our young church (which was formerly known as Morning Star Church of Greater Philadelphia) take root: Morning Star New York (now Every Nation New York City) in New York City, and Grace Covenant Church in the Greater Washington D.C. area.
In 2006, David Estes, assisted by his wife Kathleen, became the first full-time pastor of Freedom Church. Not only did David and Kathleen help lead Freedom Church to numerical growth and spiritual vitality, but they also assembled a dynamic music team that is one of the signature elements of our church family.
In late 2010 David and Kathleen began to sense that it was time to pass the baton of leadership to another young couple in Freedom Church. In June 2011, they answered the call to serve our sister church in Washington D.C., and handed over the leadership of Freedom Church to the current lead pastoral couple, Gabe and Jennifer Bouch.
In October 2011, Freedom Church moved its Sunday morning services to the historic Prince Theater. Freedom Church is an exciting place to be these days. Though God has done much in our short history, our best days are still ahead of us.
