Senior Pastor Mike Tallman and his wife Debra Tallman live at the downtown Elma Set Free location. Pastor Mike originally came to the Set Free Elma as a young man caught in the chains of addiction. Having been discipled at Set Free Elma himself, he is exceptionally well-equipped to help others. He walks the walk of recovery and freedom, and he identifies with the men and the kind of lives they have been living. His heart is firmly planted in Christ to love the men and help them find recovery and freedom in Christ just as he has.
Serving Jesus Christ through loving others isn’t a job – it’s our calling and passion, filled with hope and joy.
