Freedom Sunday highlights anti-trafficking efforts

On Sunday, 23 September 2018, thousands of churches around the world will join in Freedom Sunday. This unique service is specifically set aside for congregations to pray for, learn about, and support church-led anti-trafficking efforts.

Churches will plan Freedom Sunday services, which aim to inform and unite congregations in prayer. They are also encouraged to discuss action steps they can take as congregations, both globally and locally.

An estimated 40.3 million people are currently being trafficked. That includes labor and sex trafficking, adults and children, and people from all over the world. The multi-billion dollar industry is truly a global tragedy.

The Church of the Nazarene participates and spearheads anti-trafficking efforts globally, including projects in Moldova, Germany, India, and the Philippines.
