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, living near the church, 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. Although the dream wasn’t grasped by the pastor decades ago, Pastor Jenn, now serving as the associate pastor of the church, shared with Pastor Mark Kitzman the same dream, In the fall of 2017, Pastor Mark literally saw the building before his eyes and walked the hallways. This vision took on the name Freedom Centre as Jennifer was impressed with the thought from Galatians 5:1 “It was for freedom that Christ has set us free.” The vision was shared with Rev. Rosemary Redshaw who in spring of 2018 was driving by the church when God asked her to stop and return to the church and begin to pray. She pulled in the parking lot and saw the Freedom Centre before her eyes. She immediately called Pastor Mark and shared that she saw a three storey building to which Mark said, no the vision is for two stories. Rosemary reiterated that it was three stories with the third story for veterans. With these three visions, the birth of the Freedom Centre began.
