PROTECT: A Strategy to Prevent Human Trafficking in Our Communities
* Human trafficking is growing every year
* 600,000 - 800,000 people are trafficked across international borders each year.
* 80% are women
* 60% are minors
* The majority are enslaved in the sex trade
* You can help!
Developed by the Covenant’s Human Trafficking Task Force, PROTECT is a 40-page booklet developed as a part of the Covenant’s Break the Chains initiative. It is intended to empower local congregations to address the scourge of modern day slavery in their own communities.
The booklet also includes a listing of Key Contact Information that includes numbers and links to vital agencies, ministries and hotlines. PROTECT is made available partially through gifts to the Just Women project of Women Ministries.

“Triennial is meaningful worship, thought-provoking speakers, challenging learning experiences, heart-pumping excursions, life-altering spiritual experiences, and opportunities to take next steps in addressing injustice in our world". Journey together as women of the Covenant to an intentional spiritual adventure where we connect with God and one another across generations, cultures, geography, and life experience.
Meagan Gillan of Women Ministries said Kansas City provides a lot of advantages for the event. “The Crown Center Sheraton will be an excellent home for us,” she said. “It’s a beautiful hotel and there is a lot happening around it.” Looking forward to Triennial XV in 2016 click for updates,
Dear Women Of The Central Conference:
It’s Spring Again...my how time flies 2016!!! I look back and do not wonder how I got here, I know it is the Lord. God is always in charge… even when we think we are not moving forward in the flesh, the Spirit of God in us is saying Yes and keep moving-- I got you; no matter how we feel. Have you been there!!! Are you there now?
Well let me encourage you through the word, the scripture that sustains me and I hope it speaks to you is Mark 9:23 – “Everything is possible for one who believes”. There is a disciple shift in God’s Kingdom, He is searching for Romans 8:28 women; he is sifting the wheat and making us strong for his purpose to draw the lost into his kingdom. Women Ministries is making bold shifts to fully embrace the mandate to discipleship and evangelism; which has always been God’s mission for us. So as we grow, let us continue to encourage one another. Let’s not allow anything to separate us from the love of God.
Our true purpose is to Make and Deepen Disciples through relationships. So as we gather together for our Spring Connection let’s do it with one thing in mind, “each one reach one, each one teach one”. God didn’t look at the masses, Jesus went after the one. So imagine if each of us are used by God to touch one as we celebrate women 100 years in ministry. Think about all of the lives that have been influenced through women in ministry.
What a joy it is to connect with others in worship and fellowship; praying, worshipping together, studying the scriptures, experiencing spiritual growth and unity as believers.
Thank you to all the women who labor in love throughout the Central Conference. I truly appreciate you. There is room at the altar for all women as we grow to Make and Deepen Disciples through women in ministry.
