HOPE61, a ministry of One Mission Society (OMS), mobilizes the church around the world to prevent all forms of human trafficking with collaborative training that equips church leaders to use their talents, abilities, and resources to address the vulnerabilities that lead to trafficking. The ministry emphasizes reaching out to all who are vulnerable to becoming involved in trafficking: victims, traffickers, and buyers.
Human trafficking is the second-largest illegal business in the world, surpassed only by the illegal arms trade. Each year, millions of people are trafficked. HOPE61 believes the best long-term solution—and the only one that influences all people vulnerable to becoming traffickers and buyers as well as victims—is for churches to address specific vulnerabilities within their communities.
At its core, HOPE61 is an evangelism and discipleship catalyst aimed directly at those who are vulnerable to becoming involved in human trafficking.
