Free The Girls is an international 501(c)(3) non-profit organization devoted to coming alongside sex trafficking survivors with a path to true freedom. It’s a journey from horrific trauma to reintegrating into the life they were meant to live within their family and community. Our goal for true freedom is measured by economic freedom, restored health, social well-being, education, and opportunity for a different, hopeful future. Free The Girls’ mission is to help women rescued from sex trafficking reintegrate into their communities. Their vision is to see a world in which previously enslaved women are leading vibrant, successful, integrated lives.

SUSTAINABILITY 4 MINISTRY: Selfcare & Sustainability 4 Ministry Leaders
I coach and consult with ministry leaders to pursue sustainability practices so they can go the distance with God and live into the dreams God has dreamed for them. (Ephesians 2:10)
This era calls for a high level of creativity (think: creation–> Holy Spirit) and pursuing sustainability practices will help ministry leaders step into this new era as they follow the daring call of the Holy Spirit.
As in, if you live into sustainability practices, you might not become… the Crabby Pastor.
