Written at the request of the United Methodist Men to affirm the ministry of men, this autobiography traces movements in which he has been a participant for more than fifty-two years under appointment.As the need for military chaplains created a shortage of pastors, Freeman left Mercer University during World War II to accept responsibility for nine churches on the Georgia coast. During his appointments at this and other pastorates, he began his pursuit to build rural communities through rural churches. This passion led to his first leadership role in the South Georgia Conference as president of the Methodist Rural Fellowship. He eventually retired as editor of the Wesleyan Christian Advocate.Freemans journey from boy evangelist, preaching in abandoned churches and at backyard revivals, to Methodist leader and commentator is, without doubt, inspirational to all and is evidence of his unique talent and drive.
