Lloyd discretely, but truthfully, exposes one of the enemy’s secret strongholds. Yes, even in the church, addiction continues to plague so many men and women. It is his desire to encourage those who struggle in any addiction, stronghold or bondage become absolutely convinced of God’s grace to give freedom to every believer.
In 1973 Lloyd was sexually abused. As a result of this and other choices he made he became deeply entangled in addiction. In 1992, Lloyd Vandenberg was very discouraged by this and thought he might never get free. His search took him through exercises like fasting, praying, memorizing many scriptures and reading great books. Freedom eluded him until one day that year he began to see where freedom is really found. Since finding freedom, he has become incredibly passionate about seeing others get free and has dedicated his life to this goal.
The purpose of his ministry is to “Bring freedom to people and bring people to freedom.”
Since he began sharing his story, thousands have responded to a call to break free from strongholds, bondage and addiction.
Lloyd has recently authored and published a book “Journey to Freedom”.
