PROTECT: A Strategy to Prevent Human Trafficking in Our Communities

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.

R – Responsible Consumerism
O – Orientation to Healthy Relationships

Introducing, Thelma E. Lawson, elected president of Women Ministries of the Central Conference, in April, 2012. She is happily married to the love of her life, Edward Lawson for 27 years and counting. They are the proud parents of three sons, grandparents to 8, and 1 Great Grandson Ethan, age 2 who gets an honorable mention. They are a blended family and realized the both had sons named “Aaron”, they knew that this was a match made in Heaven!!

Thelma has been a LPN for 34 years. She has worked in several areas extending her expertise, in the cities of Chicago, IL; Rapid City, SD; Joliet, IL; and currently in Palos Hills, IL.

She began her journey with the ECC at Oakdale Cov.. Under the tutelage of Dr. Willie B Jemison, where she received training in evangelism and the Bible. She also served as President of the Usher Board for 3 years. Thelma is now serving at “The City of Truth,” Cov. Church, under the teaching and care of Pastor, Lawrence Pointer. She has extended her training/study taking classes in, Intercessory Prayer, (which is one of her passions) and Ministry Coach Training.

Her passion for Women led her to participate in the work of WMCC. Her hope is to empower “Women” to experience the Love of God, connecting them with their gifts and service to the Kingdom and their home church! “I dream of women from 18-80 working together to participate in all the Central Conference has to offer.” Working as “vessels” reaching believers/nonbelievers to increase the love of God throughout our conference and beyond. (Matt. 28:19, 20).

As President she hopes to increase the participation of women of all cultures and backgrounds, increase awareness of training opportunities, and help women to “get involved” and believe that they are needed, wanted, and loved throughout the Conference.

“There is Room at the Altar for All Women”
