Broken Free Gatherings
Aren’t you sick of the cycle?
Has anyone ever told you that complete freedom is possible for every believer?
If you think you were meant to struggle for the rest of your life, you are believing a lie.
There are two ways to get involved with Broken Free, but before those details, there’s something you should know.
Let’s be clear: there is no magic bullet, no single book that will awaken you, and no 12-step program that will free you. No accountability partner will give you what you need and no sermon, teacher, preacher or podcast will set you free.
You must be set free by The Son (John 8:36)!
Broken Free is a ministry launched through Threshold Church in 2015 for those who are seeking freedom from sexual sin! The Bible is clear that “it was for freedom that Christ set us free” and “who the Son sets free is free indeed” – but statistics show that over 65% of those sitting in our evangelical churches are consistently viewing pornography.
Justin Rule started Broken Free with his wife Whitney after feeling the Lord’s call to share the truth of freedom, hope, and redemption in a world where most people settle to just expect seasonal-victory in this area of sin.
TWO WAYS TO GET INVOLVED
Come when you can:
If you desire to ‘come when you can’, for the men, there are many opportunities to connect with Broken Free: bi-monthly worship gatherings (2x each month), monthly Saturday ‘intensives’, email messages, blogs, online resources, and occasional retreats and special events designed to challenge your heart, encounter The Truth, and help you grow in your journey towards freedom.
You are free to come and go as your schedule allows.
Wives have a bi-monthly meeting with Whitney Rule, where they gather in small groups to pray for their husbands, and learn how to walk as free women in their identity in Christ – untainted by their husbands choices.
But you are also encouraged to prayerfully commit to a ‘trimester’.
Commit to a Trimester:
Those men who truly desire to see their flesh die to sin and to see the new life, freedom, and renewed mind that Christ promises – you are invited to make a 12-week commitment to Broken Free. In return, Broken Free makes a commitment to you. (See below)
You will be required to attend all worship gatherings, intensives, homework, readings, meetings with Broken Free leadership etc, and there is a cost involved. There is usually a Weekend Gathering in each Trimester as well. But Justin and the Broken Free Leadership Team make a commitment to you – to meet with you, pray with you, support you, and invest in you so that the fullness of season will be realized.
Weekly Gathering Details (2nd & 4th Monday, 8:30pm-10:3opm):
Broken Free gatherings happen on a weekly basis and allow an individual to soak in the transforming power of the presence of the Lord through worship and prayer, be ministered to through teaching from The Word of God, and receive individual prayer, prophetic, or deliverance ministry. For those willing to make a commitment to a season of pursuing freedom, they can commit to an official “Broken Free Trimester”.
Saturday ‘Freedom Intensives’ Details (1st Saturdays, 8:00am-12pm):
The 1st Saturday of each month, we hold a ‘freedom intensive’ designed to give you space, time, and practical ways and opportunities to apply what you have been learning. Sessions include worship, teaching from local leaders and pastors, small group time, personal ministry and more. The locations are set based on the activities planned.
If you make a commitment to a ‘trimester’, there is no additional cost to attend the Saturday Intensives. Otherwise, anybody at anytime can choose to attend an intensive if they feel the content or speaker would help them. There is a cost of $30 to cover facility rentals, food, and a blessing for the guest speaker.

The Men’s Gatherings have an opportunity to commit to a specific session, which in turn reaps a greater investment from Broken Free members also committed to that session. There is daily challenges, weekly homework, reading assignments, journaling, warrior-brother partnerships and a real opportunity to encounter both victory and freedom that comes from Christ. You are strongly encouraged to fill out an application that will help BF Leadership know your situation and how to pray for you if you want to be a part of the upcoming session. There is a small fee that covers the cost of materials.
