"Proclaiming Good News of Great Joy for All People"
Based on our understanding of scripture, we believe that local congregations are to be led by a plurality of Elders.
Below is information on the current Elders of the congregation.
Pastor Michael first became a Christian in 1978 as a result of the ministry of Freedom Fellowship Church, and has remained a member here ever since.
As he grew in his faith he began first to teach Sunday School to teens and young adults, then participated in church leadership as an elder. During this time he worked in the automotive and truck industry, eventually working as a sales representative for Mack Trucks, Inc. In 1992 he transitioned from a volunteer role on the board of the Crisis Pregnancy Center of Metropolitan Richmond (now Pregnancy Resource Center) to full time employment as the Executive Director.
In 2000 he sensed a call to and was affirmed unanimously as full-time Pastor of Freedom Fellowship and has served in that capacity ever since.
Michael has been happily married to Carol Thompson Daily since 1982 and they live in the Town of Ashland.
