Helping Pastors to Equip the Church to Watch for signs of at-risk behavior – abusive relationships, human trafficking…
Our mission is to walk alongside Pastors, mentoring and coaching them to develop a healthy Church that equips its members to love God and love their neighbor.
(Ephesians 4:12 “Equipping God’s people for works of service for the building up of the kingdom of Christ…”)
Here’s an incredible story about a rescue.
UPDATE JUNE 2020 Can you imagine being a child trapped in the sex trafficking trade? Being trapped in a nightmare you just can’t wake up from; the darkness of your circumstances frightens you to your core. But then, someone in the community notices you….they notice the signs of abuse and they call for help.
This week, our LoveServes ministry partner, International Justice Mission (IJM) did just that! A 14 year-old child and five adult women have been FREED from sexual exploitation in the Dominican Republic (D.R.) after a successful rescue operation.
This is cause for celebration! Let’s take a minute today to bow our heads to give thanks to the Lord!
Please prayerfully join us in this rescue mission. Donate to LoveServes and help us continue training pastors and their congregation to live out this rescue mission. Your donation today can have an eternal impact!
IJM first heard about the case from a local partner. IJM alerted national authorities of the complaint, and the investigation led to a rescue. That rescue effort process is part of the training that pastors in the D.R. receive through the LoveServes ministry partnership with IJM. LoveServes is helping pastors to equip their congregations to watch for signs of at-risk behavior – abusive relationships, human trafficking and other situations where the church can help shine a light into the darkness for people in need of rescue.
There are still thousands of people who need to be rescued. But we need your help! LoveServes wants to continue training pastors and congregations to help rescue children and women from abusive situations like human trafficking. But we also want to equip them to rescue lost people from an even greater torment and darkness. God wants to work through the local church to rescue people for eternity – to bring them into a relationship with Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
