Hope for Justice and Holston Conference of The United Methodist Church have partnered together in an effort to stamp out the injustice of human trafficking.

Our Partnership unites your whole church behind a practical mission that is delivering freedom, hope and justice for people trapped in the misery of modern-day slavery.

By supporting the programs pioneered by Hope for Justice, your church will be serving individuals broken by exploitation and abuse, while putting into effect your vast potential to impact your nation and and your world.


Holston Partners – What You Do

Invite A Speaker

Share the work of Hope for Justice in your church once a year. Our team will help you put together the best sessions for your members.

“I am delighted to be able to welcome Hope for Justice into a partnership with the Holston Conference of The United Methodist Church.

Often partnership ends up being nothing more than names on paper. This will not happen with our partnership. The injustices of trafficking cross international borders and this partnership will see many who are exploited here in the USA and overseas redeemed and restored.

I wholeheartedly encourage Holston Conference churches to support this partnership.”

Lori Sluder, Chair, Outreach/Advocacy Ministries Team

Hope for Justice trained speakers

We can arrange for one of our trained speakers to speak at your main meeting, or for you to be part of Hope Sunday. It’s a great chance to share with your whole church community how they are changing lives through Hope for Justice and to pray together for survivors.

Church and Prayer Updates

Every month we’ll send you the latest news, along with a video and prayer update. This comes packed full of stories of changed lives, updates from our operations team and ways to get involved with our pioneering work.

Stories & Films

Each year we make a range of high-quality films to tell the stories of rescued victims, raise awareness of human trafficking and profile the work we’ll be doing, with your support, to end it. You’ll have exclusive access to video content for use in your church

Specialist Speaker Training

We’d love to invite a member of your church community to come and take part in our speaker training. As a certified Hope for Justice speaker, they’ll learn about the scale and devastating impact of human trafficking and how the church can play its part to end it.

Youth Group Engagement

Teaching the next generation is vital in the fight against human trafficking. Our team works with youth groups and conferences across the globe to raise awareness and knowledge of the issue and how they can be on the lookout.

Fundraising Pack & Resources

Every year you’ll get a digital or physical pack full of resources and ideas to help hold your own Hope Challenge fundraiser. You’ll also have an exclusive access to our artwork should you wish to order your own banners etc.

Prayer Requests & Emails

We’ll send you prayer points each month from our Investigators and Advocacy teams. For rescues, for welfare needs and for the protection of the team – whatever it may be, you’ll be at the heart of it. Whenever it’s possible we’ll let you know how your prayers have changed lives.

“I’ve shed tears with devastated fathers as we watched their children play again. I’ve grasped at words of hope for teenage girls just hours after they’d last been abused. And I am ever more resolved that we can end slavery, and that it was always God’s command for us. Let’s end it together.”

Ben Cooley, CEO, Hope for Justice
