Some of you may remember me mentioning at our 20th Birthday Celebration that God was leading our church to get involved in taking on the global giant of human trafficking. As we do with all of our outreach, we try to work through partnerships with people and organizations that are making a long term difference on the ground. The great news is that we’ve found our first partner in this area…and we didn’t have to look far. Andrea Stokes, who served as an intern in our outreach department several years ago, is now serving in India with a ministry focusing on victims of human trafficking and was recently featured in the Aiken Standard.
Andrea will be at our Banks Mill Campus Sunday night May 19th at 6 p.m. in the Centerpoint building to share with us the work she’ll be doing and how you can be a part of it. If God has burdened your heart for this work, I hope you will join us.
