Today we welcome Freedom Bound to our services to lead us in worship. This group of men started singing together occasionally at their home church in Leaskdale in 2001. They were some of the guys who were in the “back row of the church choir” and share a strong love for music and good friendship.  Early in 2004 Joan Wideman joined the group as pianist.

This group of men has been ministering in a variety of venues since that time throughout Southern Ontario. Their musical selections are from a broad style comprised of a mix of Contemporary Gospel, Spirituals, Southern Gospel, and some traditional church music. Current group members are Eric Blackburn, Steve Mount, Don Ross, Murray Stewart and Dwight Wideman.  Freedom Bound feels called to a ministry of encouragement – through their music and testimonies of their personal faith journeys.
