It was over 20 years ago that the current Pastor of the Cambridge Preston Church of the Nazarene, Pastor Jennifer Turner, as a young mother of 4, was looking for help for her children. She discovered that because she did not live in the catchment area of the local community centre, she would be put on a waiting list. With this experience in mind, Pastor Jenn began to dream about a community centre in Preston.
In 2017 Pastor Mark Kitzman felt it was time to move forward on the dream and saw the vision of a building on the property. In 2018 the dream developed to include ministry to veterans in crisis. The name Freedom Centre came from the verse from Galatians 5:1 “It was for freedom that Christ has set us free.”
