In 1981, Chris Callison gave his life to Jesus and was supernaturally delivered from drug and alcohol addiction. In 1986, Chris started the Living Free Support Groups to help the chemically addicted. Chris was licensed and then ordained by Living Word in 1987. To further his ability to care for the addicted, Chris became licensed by the State of Minnesota as an alcohol and drug counselor.
In 1993, LWCC opened Living Free Recovery Services (LFRS) as a treatment program for adults with Pastor Callison as its director. In addition, LFRS has a supportive living home for the chemically addicted while they are in treatment. Recently 120 acres of land was purchesed called Three Pines. The farm's purpose is to disciple people on a long-term basis.
