The Freedom School was founded in 1997 by New City Fellowship Church (Saint Louis, Missouri), an independent 501c3, member of the Presbyterian Church in America. The school belongs to a network of ministries collectively called Restore Saint Louis. Restore Saint Louis synthesizes the experience and leadership of New City Fellowship with the human, financial, and spiritual resources of other churches, students, and businesses from the area and across the nation. Though they operate in different contexts, all Restore Saint Louis ministries endeavor to show God’s love in the form of justice and mercy to the poor, widows, orphans, immigrants and refugees of Saint Louis, Missouri. The Freedom School seeks to demonstrate the Core Values of New City Fellowship in an educational context.
