John Stroup and the Freeway Ministries

REACHING ONE BROKEN LIFE AT A TIME” 
Freeway Ministries is an organization committed to living out the Gospel and fulfilling the Great Commission found in Matthew 28. They are committed to using Biblical truths and believe through the reasoning of scriptures, people can and will be set free from any and every addiction; all while glorifying Jesus Christ.  They focus on assisting the local church with hard to reach men and women by explaining the Gospel in a way they can relate by people who have been in the same circumstances. They are a gateway into church for the people that are “unchurched.” John started this work and he and his family faithfully serve the Lord in this growing ministry.

Alpha Women’s Center

The heart for Alpha Women’s Center can be traced back to 1989, with a group of concerned pro-life individuals who wanted to make a difference in the central Iowa area.  Over several years, groups met, committees were formed, and action was taken. Alpha Women’s Center opened in 1995 with a vision and mission to glorify God as a Christ-centered resource for affirming the sanctity of human life starting at conception.  Our two locations are staffed by a small but mighty team of dedicated employees and trained volunteers.  We do not receive government funding and we operate entirely on donations and private support from churches and individuals.  For more information, go to our website at www.awcdesmoines.org. “We want the opportunity to be a friend to someone who may need one.”
