Dr. Mike Freeman: A Next Generation Leader Graces New GT Cover!
Approximately 16 years ago, a colleague in ministry recommended to a young Pastor Mike Freeman, that he attend and consider joining something called the Fellowship of Inner-City Word of Faith Ministries (FICWFM). At the time, Freemanâ€™s Temple Hills, MD-based Spirit of Faith ministry (spiritoffaith.org) was just two years old, and like any start-up venture, money was tight. But Freeman took his friendâ€™s advice, and in his own words, â€œgathered the moneyâ€ to go to California for the annual conference of FICWFM, which was founded and led by Dr. Frederick K.C. Price.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â It was a life-changing experience.
For Freeman, it was also the manifestation of prophesy. â€œIâ€™d watched Dr. Price on television for years,â€ he stated. â€œOne Sunday morning back in 1986, as I was preparing to go to church and watching Dr. Priceâ€™s broadcast, I turned to [my wife] Dee Dee and said, â€˜Iâ€™m really going to know this guy. I donâ€™t know how, but weâ€™re going to have a great relationship.â€™ Now, to see how everything has turned out, has just beenâ€¦God!â€
As of July 26, 2011, Dr. Michael Aaron Freeman became the new President of FICWFM.
â€œDr. Freeman has been a personal friend and ministry associate of mine for quite a few years,â€ said Apostle Price, â€œand over that time Iâ€™ve watched him closely, and he has exhibited consistency, integrity, honesty and a pure heart. He possesses all of those attributes!â€
â€œI believe he is the right person for this assignment, and he believes that God is leading him in his leadership [for FICWFM]. Iâ€™ll still be involved, but I trust him, and thatâ€™s one of the most important things about thisâ€¦Iâ€™m putting my life in his hands.â€
