We serve as the European Liaisons for WorldVenture’s Global Anti-Trafficking Team and are passionate about these ministry focus areas:
Through individual conversations, as well as small group, organizational and church presentations, we help to build awareness of the sex trafficking issue and the factors that contribute to it, particularly the links between pornography and trafficking. A Spirit-empowered church armed with a thorough knowledge of the trafficking issue can be a powerful deterrent against trafficking in their local communities.
Equipping and Connecting
Once someone is aware of the trafficking issue, how is God calling him or her to respond? We want to equip and support people in this discovery process while working to connect them with front-line organizations to engage in ways that best match their individual gifts, passions, and skill sets. One of Melissa’s passions is to journey supportively with trafficking survivors as they rebuild their lives and to train volunteers to do the same through survivor support ministries.
A key driver of the demand for sex trafficking is pornography, and research shows that pornography viewing is almost as prevalent within the church as outside of it. Brian’s passion is to support men seeking freedom from pornography through online recovery groups and/or individual mentoring.
Our Ministry Vision
• To equip and mobilize believers to engage in the fight against sex trafficking.
• To help men live in freedom from pornography or sexual sin and to live holistically into the calling God has for them.
• To see those caught in the web of trafficking and sexual exploitation experience physical, emotional, and spiritual freedom through Jesus Christ.
