About Us: Our Vision
Walking out his recovery in a life devoted to truly serving others, Pastor Michael Tallman married his wife Debra in September 2006. In 2007 she joined him in the Set Free Elma ministry, and it is a beautiful picture to the men of the redemption that God desires to bring to each and every human being. Pastor Mike and Debbie’s goal is for men to understand and know the voice of God and to walk in His will. This goes far beyond just knowing about God — it’s having an intimate relationship with Him in the person of Jesus Christ.
The Tallman’s long-term vision includes starting Set Free churches in other areas where there is a need, and wherever God might lead. Essentially, their heart is that Set Free Elma would be replicated to reach more men who are lost and broken. If the Lord desires it, they are open to starting a women’s facility (separate from the men’s group) to disciple hurting women who desperately need to find the love Jesus Christ offers and the freedom He provides.
