Trauma and Trafficking: A Christian Response

Human trafficking is not only a real problem in other parts of the world, but also in our own neighborhoods. It may not look like what you see on TV or in the movies, but human trafficking rings do exist. Unfortunately, they will often go unnoticed by almost everyone within the community.

As Christians, we have a responsibility to help those that are in need. Biblical Seminary hosted a three day conference entitled “The Biblical Call: A Christian Response to Human Trafficking and Sexual Abuse” which dealt with this very issue. Dr. Diane Langberg, Bethany Hoang, Pearl Kim, and Bob Morrison all delivered pertinent information on how this issue should be handled. The impact of the conference was felt by all of the attendees.

If you would like to view these powerful messages regarding human trafficking and sexual abuse, order the 3 DVD set containing talks from the conference.
