Website | redeemedministries.com Dennis Mark, Director | email@example.com Maria Papita, Volunteer Coordinator | firstname.lastname@example.org Our Mission | To bring Christ's loving redemption and amazing liberation within our communities by providing environments conducive for holistic healing and guiding adult survivors of domestic sex trafficking to healthy, productive and independent living. We give our best to God for His honor and glory, provide trauma-informed aftercare services to domestic adult sex trafficking survivors in a holistic healing model, educate and equip the Church to meet its mission calling to the care of the abused, neglected and exploited, provide resources to all levels of law enforcement to assist in their victim centered approach to assist sex trafficking survivors, and educate communities to the realities of the effects of sex trafficking and serious societal ramifications of commercial sex. Ongoing Prayer Needs | • For our leadership to lead with God's wisdom. • For our volunteers to find their place and not burn out. • Protection for our staff and volunteers from attacks from Satan. • For the hearts of the men who buy the services to understand the consequences and be changed. • That the pimps who sell these women come to know Jesus and release the women from bondage. • For those that come in contact with the women that are being trafficked. That what is happening be known to them and that they respond wisely. • For resources to be provided for the safe house and the assessment center through volunteers and donations. Serving Opportunities | • Educate - Organize an information night at your church or for a small group. Learn how to present information to churches and organizations. Tell your family, friends and co-workers about the issue. • Build relationships - Build relationships with women currently being exploited. Build relationships with local churches who want to engage. Build relationships with local businesses who can contribute to the fight or aftercare. Build relationships with law makers and law enforcement officers. • Identify resources - Connect with therapists, doctors, attorneys and other professional service providers to arrange for pro bono services to be made available to survivors. Research available resources survivors can use to integrate back into society. • Help organize fund raisers. • Collect Various Gifts Cards to use in the Aftercare Incentive Program. • Redeem Their Value - Join the Prayer Team. Become a Mentor. Lead a Bible Study. What does partnering with Church Project mean to your ministry? "As survivors go through treatment in the aftercare program, there are so many areas where volunteers and resources are needed. From in-person care, to at-home volunteer hours, to professional services, to donations....it's a huge collaborative effort to help one survivor go through her healing program. As our executive director often says, "everything that is needed to help the survivors is sitting the pews of the church." Church Project has been partnered with Redeemed Ministries since 2012 through financial donations as well as church "members" that currently serve as volunteers on different teams. We've also had some house churches serve as groups in the assessment center, through donations of resources, etc."
