“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captive and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
— Luke 4:18-19

YOUR FREEDOM OFFERING CHANGES LIVES.
The Church of the Nazarene is active in many countries where people are vulnerable to human trafficking. Nazarene Compassionate Ministries (NCM) supports local churches in anti-trafficking efforts that range from prevention and education to protection and rehabilitation.
Your Freedom Offering changes lives! On Freedom Sunday, you can give to a Freedom Offering, which will go to support church-led anti-trafficking ministries that are changing lives.
Gifts given to the Freedom Offering in the past have supported the opening of new projects that are offering freedom to victims of human trafficking and helping prevent the trafficking of at-risk children and youth. Your gifts this year will allow NCM to support new projects as well as the continuation of ongoing anti-trafficking work.
