What if there was a night where people from all walks of life could gather and experience full FREEDOM? What if there was a neutral space — where all are welcome, regardless of ethnicity, church affiliation, and gender? This is FREEDOM NIGHTS, a two-night event hosted by United House Ministries — a non-profit ministry designed to be a resource to local churches and non-profit organizations. Our mission is to bring full FREEDOM to the individual and complete UNITY to the body of Christ.
