At the 2016 National Conference, we will take a close look at human trafficking and modern day slavery. This is an important issue of Biblical justice and advocacy. In the midst of an amazing lineup of workshops, we wanted to highlight the human trafficking and modern day slavery workshop track. We’re partnering with some incredible practitioners who will educate on issues of trafficking and how we, as the body of Christ, can work towards freedom.
Take a close look at this set of workshops and take advantage of an opportunity to engage in this important conversation and even more vital engagement in a movement for freedom.
