Freedom for Youth


Mark Nelson,  Executive Director

Our Mission

Freedom for Youth Ministries offers the love of Jesus Christ to distressed and impoverished youth which empowers them to break bondages in their lives, discover their God-given purpose and lead a life filled with faith, hope and love.


To unite the Christian community to reach out to our lost and hurting youth in Des Moines and empower them to demonstrate their love for Jesus through sharing their time and talents with the youth we serve.


Freedom for Youth Ministries will work to:

  • Share the gospel of Jesus Christ as the foundation of true renewal and hope in life.
  • Unite the churches, who also focus on Jesus, His death and resurrection, to empower them to serve as they are called.
  • Love the youth unconditionally as Christ did without regard to race, past history or current condition.
  • Offer a safe and loving ministry for youth, volunteers, and staff, which stimulates spiritual growth in their life.
  • Operate a ministry that is above reproach in its fiscal responsibility, integrity and perception in the community.

Randal and Candace Cheney (Zimbabwe)


The same year that Randal was ordained and Candice graduated from nursing school, the opportunity arose for the Cheneys to minister cross-culturally with Global Partners. In 1999 they served as GO-Net missionaries in Zimbabwe, Africa, for one year, working in the area of leadership development. 

In 2005 Randal and Candice once again partnered with Global Partners to serve as GO-Net missionaries for one year. This time they served in Zambia, Africa, at the Pilgrim Wesleyan Bible College in theological education.

In 2010 Global Partners appointed the Cheneys to long-term missionary service to Zimbabwe. Randal’s and Candice’s goal is to come alongside the national church leaders to encourage and equip them for the calling God has placed on their lives. Their vision is to see the potential of the African Church unleashed through the power of the Holy Spirit, transforming lives and entire communities for the glory of God.

The Cheneys have five children: Nathaniel (’94), Marlena (’97), Olivia (’99), William (’02), and Clark-Benjamin (’06).

Rolling Stone Ministry


An angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it… The angel said, "...He is not here; He has risen." 

Matthew 28:2, 5-6

John and Laurie Stewart have a vision for presenting an intelligent Christian faith in an increasingly-secular world. Both have been serving others in a variety of ways for a number of years through teaching, legal advocacy, speaking, and writing.   In 2007, they founded Rolling Stone Ministries to expand their work.  The rolling stone represents the mechanism by which evidence confirmed that Jesus is the Savior.[1]

The purpose of RSM:

  • TEACH biblical truth
  • TRAIN Christian leaders, church planters and evangelists
  •  DEFEND the Christian faith intelligently
  • STRENGTHEN the faith of believers
  • CONFRONT secular attacks on the Christian Faith
  • ENGAGE the culture with the truth of Scripture
  • ADVOCATE for religious freedom
  • John and Laurie are committed to defending and proclaiming biblical truth. Internationally, they teach and speak at universities, Bible institutes, churches and conferences. Nationally, they speak at law schools, conferences, churches, retreats, camps and other groups. Additionally, they use their legal skills as attorneys to defend civil and religious liberties. They face the challenges, head-on, of a growing secular culture, and are on the cutting edge of winning the culture back to a biblical truth. RSM’s website is a communication tool for John and Laurie to keep people informed about “cutting edge” issues and current events.In His infinite wisdom, God continues to grow the possibilities for RSM every day. John and Laurie Stewart desire to bring Him glory.
  •  [1] During his life on earth, Jesus claimed to be God in the flesh and predicted He would be raised from the dead. After He was crucified and buried, on the third day, the burial stone rolled away from Jesus’ tomb, revealing its emptiness. The empty tomb is clear evidence that Jesus was who He claimed to be, the Christ.
