Safety. Rest. Recovery.
That is what the Thornton area meant to the Continental Army in the 1700s when they were fleeing a defeat at Brandywine. The historic "Yellow House," now the Thornton Post Office operated as a field hospital for those soldiers.
The house above at 373 Glenn Mills Road was once part of the underground railroad where slaves found liberty.
So, when this house with a deep history became available to Priority One Delare Valley to do "all things men's ministry," it seemed natural to name it "Freedom House."
A New Space for Freedom.
Beginning the fall of 2020, Freedom House will become a central location to hold recovery meetings, Bible studies, counseling sessions and fellowship events.
Our vision is that many men from all walks of life may come and find the pathway to freedom and spiritual growth as a result of the outreach of Priority One.
Dedicated to Impact
The significance of having "our own place" can not be overstated. Feeling somewhat nomadic and transitory since our inception, Freedom House will become a home and easy place to meet, connect, centralize and encourage one another as we grow as men in Christ.
We pray that this place becomes known as a launching point for men to find liberty from whatever weighs them down and bring new-found life back to their families and communities.
The Price of Freedom
The annual cost of rental is $35,000 annually. This includes monthly rental of $2,500 plus electric, water, lawn care, and other incidentals and furnishings.
To offset these expenses, we ask for “suggested donation” for the men in the groups and others who utilize the facility.
We also very much welcome regular support to directly offset Freedom House rental and expenses. These donations – especially monthly – are a tremendous help in assisting men to come more easily and regularly.
