New Book For Men

Dennis Jernigan’s new book, 'What Every Boy Should Know...What Every Man Wishes His Dad Had Told Him' is here! If you are among the first 50 to buy the book,  we will include a FREE copy of the CD 'Songs of Freedom For Men' as a 'thank you' for your purchase. Dennis really does want to encourage men to walk in their true, God-ordained masculine identity. This book is intended for men as a reminder to be all God has called them to be as men. It should be used as a part of your personal, spiritual growth as a man and IS NOT intended for young boys to read alone. In addition for use as a personal growth aid, the book also makes an excellent tool for dad’s to use to teach their sons who they are as males, what it means to be masculine, and what to expect as they become men. We suggest men work through this book WITH their sons.


What Every Boy Should Know...What Every Man Wishes His Dad Had Told Him


Plus a FREE copy of the recording Songs of Freedom For Men to the first 50 who respond.


Song Receivers Seminar and New Song Showcase

On Saturday, August 1, 2009, Dennis Jernigan will be leading a very personal seminar on the subject of song receiving. Having written over 2,000 songs (hundreds of which have been published and sung around the world), he does not consider himself a songwriter, but rather, a receiver. The daylong seminar will include sessions on DJ’s philosophy, the various techniques he utilizes to spur on creativity, as well as opportunities to receive songs – on the spot! The day will end with something we are VERY excited about: a public showcase for the songs received from the hearts of those who attend the seminar! Please tell your family and friends about this portion of the seminar that is completely FREE to them.


To help inspire the hearts of the song receivers who attend, the seminar will be held in the serene and picturesque setting of Tulakogee Conference Center, located on beautiful Lake Ft. Gibson near Wagoner, OK.


Song Receivers Seminar - $125.00

• Includes lunch and dinner

• Includes a copy of the Dennis Jernigan book A Worshipper's Guide to Creativity, Song Writing, and Ministry

Dennis Jernigan Freedom Experience – We Need Your Help

Dear Friend,

After nearly 30 years in ministry, I feel like I am just finding my truest purpose. Really, its what Ive been doing all along, but recently I have felt an urgency to be more focused, more deliberate than ever. Thats why I have launched the DJ Freedom Experience.


DJ Freedom Experiences are designed for one reason: to set people free. In Luke 4, when

Jesus announced his mission on planet Earth, He emphatically declared that He had come to “proclaim release to the captives...and set free the oppressed.”


Its not hard to see why this is so critical in this hour. We are besieged. The enemy has cleverly wrapped chains around our souls, disguised as moral ambiguities. Sexual and gender confusion are rampant. Addictions of all types are leading people to deeper levels of suffering and loneliness than ever before. As a people, a nation—as individuals and families—we are bound by our vices more than we are marked by our virtues. Sadly, this is just as true in the church as it is in the world.


And yet, Jesus said he came to set us free! He said the Truth makes you free. He said we are meant to abide in truth, abide in joy, and live abundantly. More than ever, His mission has become mine: I want to see people set free.


If you know my story, you know I speak from experience. I know the pain of bondage firsthand. For years, I was trapped in a homosexual lifestyle. Yet for nearly three decades, I have walked in a grace and liberty that literally refashioned my personality on Gods terms, according to His identity, rather than the labels the world wanted to put on me. Its one thing to abstain from sin. Its another to have your desires transformed so that you no longer desire sinful things. Thats what I want for others. Along with my friend, a gifted teacher named Dean Briggs (who has endured his own share of pain and struggles), that’s what we do!


At the various DJ Freedom Experiences around the country, you will learn about:


• Moving from an Unclean Conscience to Clean

• Deliverance from the Bondage of Spiritual Egypt

• Transforming Toxic Desires into Godly Desires

• Developing a Lifestyle of Forgiveness

• The Believers Identification with Christ

and more...


Over the course of a Friday and Saturday, you can start a journey to authentic transformation. Can it really happen? Yes! In the atmosphere of anointed teaching and intimate worship, chains break. Remember, He wants you to live free. Thats why He came. In a ministry based on honesty and love, soaked in grace and truth, miracles occur.


We are currently seeking the Lord for locations and church bodies to host the Dennis Jernigan Freedom Experience around the nation…and we need your help. If you would like more information on this dynamic weekend experience, please contact Glory Thompson, my booking coordinator. She can be reached at 1-800-877-0406 or at [email protected].

In His Love & Grace,

Dennis Jernigan


PS Read on to find out what people are saying about the Dennis Jernigan Freedom Conferences:


To be a part of two different Freedom Conferences via WebTV was one of the most impactful and healing ministry sessions I have ever been part of. Because of the testimonies of Dennis Jernigan and Dean Briggs, my knowledge of freedom from God's Word has forever changed the way I understand who I am in Christ...and the power of Christ over the chains that kept me from true forgiveness. I highly recommend attending any (and all!) Freedom Conferences, whether live, or by WebTV. My life will be forever changed as I saw Gods action taking place as Dean and Dennis shared their hearts about how to find true Freedom from the things that keep me bound in sin. — Karen


“The DJ Freedom conference that I attended this past February made a great difference in my life. No longer am I bound to my past or to the false identity that Satan deceived me to believe. I am no longer held in bondage to sin or condemnation. I have been set free from my spiritual Egypt and have entered the Promised Land! Yes, there are still battles to fight but, because of the freedom I have in Jesus Christ, there is victory. I am NOT defined by who I was! I am a child of the KING, free to rule & reign with my Heavenly Father. If you have the opportunity to go to one of these conferences, go! Don't let anything or anyone stand in your way. Freedom awaits!”

— Larry


“I would highly recommend your Freedom Conference to hurting people in all walks of life. The teaching was excellent! The afternoon session on forgiveness was exactly what I needed and continue to use today. I’ve attended previous conferences...However, this

conference was different. The level of honesty and transparency coming from you and Dean was refreshing and so important for those of us attending.”

— Gary


“The Freedom Conference provides opportunity to call a personal time out and exchange warped views for true views of reality. He picks me up when I fall, showers me with His healing touch, and empowers me by His Holy Spirit to run the race that is set before me.

I do not belong to the world. I belong to Jesus! I will continue to shed the baggage and trust Him more and more. Set aside time (at the Conference) to spend drawing closer to Jesus. You will walk away with much to ponder, and a deeper, closer walk with Jesus.”

— Nancy
