LONGWOOD, Fla., Jan. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Thousands of children are bought and sold for sex every year … in the United States. For those within the faith community, that is shocking and unacceptable. The problem is, we don't know what to do about it.
That's why Shared Hope International and Northland Church have created the JuST:Faith Summit and put together a plan to help the church respond to sex trafficking.
Join us for three days of inspiring speakers and workshops to gain practical knowledge on how to address trafficking in your community. Survivors, law enforcement, prosecutors, recovery ministries and experienced restoration home providers will equip you to fight sex trafficking at the grassroots level.
The JuST (juvenile sex trafficking) Summit will also feature worship with three-time Grammy-award winning Christian singer/songwriter, Michael W. Smith. The first 200 registrants will receive a 50% off promotion code to use towards a second registration.
Coming April 20-22, 2016 to Northland, A Church Distributed in Longwood, Fla. Register now at justfaithsummit.eventbrite.com.
January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month. For interviews with experts on the frontlines, contact Robert Andrescik: firstname.lastname@example.org, 407-900-9496.
