Time-Tested Curriculum

Our multi-level curriculum allows you to help anyone who comes to your FTL chapter for hope and help. Regardless of where participants are in their walk with the Lord, they will find what they need in their struggle with addiction.

Online Chapter Portal

Digitial training guides which will help spell out exactly who you need to have in place (roles) as well as what they need to do (responsibilities) in order to ensure the best care for those coming to your FTL chapter.

Digital Graphics

Unlimited access to digital files from which you can print high quality materials for advertising as well as for group meeting time. The excellent quality of these materials matches the excellent message found throughout all of the FTL material which aims to bring honor and glory to God.

FTL Chapter Portal

Use of the web-based FTL GroupApp. This online community for Directors allows you to connect with other Freedom That Lasts Chapters and FTL Headquarters in order to encourage each other in the ministry.

Chapter Discount

Each chapter receives a deep discount on the required printed materials needed to run an effective FTL chapter. We have worked hard to produce excellent material at the lowest cost to help each FTL chapter to be as excellent and efficient as possible in ministering to the hurting and addicted. 


You will receive ongoing phone support when needed. We know that getting an FTL chapter up and going is best done with timely and helpful support. Chapter directors have access to FTL leadership who are committed to both help and navigate any issues that might arise. It is our hope and prayer that this kind of support will help each chapter better serve those who come for hope and help.

Pastor Northwest Valley Baptist Church

FTL has become an increasingly important part of our local church ministry. Any church today that is reaching the lost with the gospel must find a way to help those who are dealing with addictions and life-dominating sins. There is nothing magical about FTL. It is a discipleship ministry specifically designed for people who desperately need to find Jesus Christ and grow in Him.

We have also found that FTL is a great tool, not only for people dealing with addictions, but also for people facing other significant life issues. It provides a deeper, more accountable form of discipleship than is found in other typical church ministries. Fulfilling the Great Commission in today’s culture demands a ministry like this.

Michael Gambrell

Former Addict & Current Student

As a cocaine addict and an alcoholic for years, I was on a path of no return. Years before, I attended AA, but the "higher power" mentality was not for me. Even then, I knew the truth of God's Word.

12 years ago, Christ saved me, but I still battled my addictions. By God's grace, the drug addiction faded very quickly. However, I still drank, and I kept failing over and over.

A friend invited me to Freedom That Lasts, and I learned that real victory and true freedom comes from walking with God and cooperating with Him to change who I was. I finally had hope that overcoming addiction was possible with God's help. God used FTL to rescue me and continues using it to change my life.
