Founder & Chancellor


Dr. Michael A. Freeman is the Founder and Senior Pastor of Spirit of Faith Christian Center (SOFCC) with locations in Prince George’s County and Baltimore, Maryland. He is a fourth-generation Pastor who has a heart to teach God’s people in simplicity and power. His God-ordained assignment is to minister to the whole man, spirit, soul, and body, with an emphasis on faith, family, finances, and fellowship and fitness.

Dr. Freeman, affectionately referred to as “Dr. Mike,” founded SOFCC in 1993. Dr. Mike’s vision includes teaching and developing in each partner the “Bible kind of faith” so that, as the partners grow, they will in turn teach others to have the same “spirit of faith.” The vision also includes building “Faith City” which includes a recreational facility, a domestic violence transitional shelter, a senior living facility, and much more. Dr. Mike’s vision is to provide a spiritual, social, and economic structure to the Washington/Baltimore Metropolitan Area and throughout the nation so that the needs of the whole man are met. Dr. Mike believes and teaches that every partner plays an important role in bringing forth the goals to fulfill the vision for the ministry.

Dr. Mike is married to Dr. Deloris Freeman, lovingly known as “Dr. DeeDee.” They continually make an impact through the Word of God by living a transparent lifestyle. Dr. Freeman’s success in life and ministry is attributed to him standing on Matthew 5:8. His relationship with his wife, Dr. DeeDee, and their three children, Brittney, Joshua, and Brelyn, are an example and blessing to the congregation of SOFCC.

Today, through the vision of Dr. Mike, Spirit of Faith Bible Institute continues to produce anointed men and women who are equipped and trained to carry out their God ordained assignments with excellence, with integrity and with a spirit of faith.
