“And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”     Micah 6:8 NIV

The Problem

Women, men and children are being funneled into the human trafficking trap. To redeem their lives, The Church is going to have to rise up as a unified and connected Body. Fragmented efforts are not enough. 

May they be made completely one,
so the world may know You have sent Me
and have loved them as You have loved Me.

John 17:23

How Do We Do This?

  1. Through Justice Discipleship

    Once people do learn about the problem of human trafficking the number one question they ask is, “What can I do about it?” We created an anti-trafficking toolkit called the GoBox as a response to that very important question. The result has been that we are seeing people being  ignited with a passion to follow Jesus into the radical pursuit of justice and righteousness. Eyes are being opened. Minds are being renewed. The people of God are taking new steps of bold action. (Prov. 31:8-9)

  2. Through unified collaboration through our Church Council

    Through the Alliance, churches are given a direct connection to the immediate needs of trafficking victims and are given a voice among influential places with government an on various task forces and coalitions working to move the needle of justice forward (list out HTRA, Rescue and Restore, CEASE, HAAT?)  Every congregation in the Alliance has 2 representatives that act as liaisons between their church and the Alliance. The Church Council meets quarterly to engage with one another, get updates from the field and better understand the work of the various partners of the Alliance.

  3. Through strategic financial support of trusted partners

    All Church partners give a yearly donation into the Alliance that supports the work of the Alliance and helps fund strategic projects crucial to the success of the movement. Funding is given where it’s most needed and when it’s most needed to be the most effective.

“You are an integral part of our anti-trafficking efforts. The City of Houston alone cannot stop human trafficking – this is an issue that has to be addressed at home and in places of worship, both of which are beyond the City’s reach….. I encourage you to continue in your faith to speak up for what is right and engage in efforts with the knowledge that you are joined by countless others in Houston, across the U.S. and the world over who are committed to ending modern-day slavery.”

Minal Davis, Special Advisor to the Mayor on Human Trafficking
