It’s our vision to be a multiplying movement of passionate followers of Jesus who impact our community, and beyond with the grace, love, and hope. We want to invite you to partner with us as we live out our mission and vision in our communities.
Free Church | Pastor Ralph and Nadine Trask
Free Church was founded in 1984, as Bible Center Fellowship, in NE Salem, by my parents Pastor Ralph and Nadine Trask, who have served this city in ministry for over 60 years, with the Fellowship Network. Over the decades, we have seen many come to Christ, connect in community, and be equipped and sent out for ministry.
In 2009, I was privileged to become the Senior Pastor of Bible Center Fellowship. That September, we relaunched the church as Fellowship Church.

Free Church | Church on Market
In 2017, we moved from our property on Market and Lancaster in NE Salem, to our beautiful campus on Sunnyside Road in South Salem.
In 2022, as the region emerged from the Covid-19 pandemic, we rebranded ourselves as Free Church to reflect our identity of being free from sin, free of shame, free in Christ, and free to worship.

Free Church | Free Church Downtown at the The Reed
In August of 2022, we launched Free Church Downtown in Downtown Salem, and began weekly services in September, 2023.

We believe that though God has blessed this church, and my family, with many decades of ministry to and in this city, that we are just getting started, and the best is yet to come!

Senior Pastor
