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.

P – The Power of Prosecution
R – Responsible Consumerism

E – Education to Protect the Most Vulnerable

“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,

Hello Women,

It has been challenging- and yet so rewarding to serve as your President of WMCC for the past seven and a half years. There have been many changes and redeveloping of ministries in the Covenant, growing leaders and developing programs to bring us to the place God has intended us to be for His purpose.

I am humbled to be in this place with you- as we are forever evolving through Gods word. I have been surrounded by a cloud of witnesses that have spurred me on. I thank God for each and every one of you.

I was blessed to attend Triennial XV in July 2016 in Kansas City along with over 900 women. We celebrated 100 years of women in ministry. Our thirsts were indeed QUENCHED!!! We connected, refreshed—and lives were transformed. And we were introduced to Cov talks with women from all cultures and backgrounds.

Fall Retreat was hosted by the Badger District for the past two years. We were Fortified through the word by our “fearless leader” Meagan Gillan and over 200 plus women at Covenant Harbor Bible Camp in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.

The Great Lakes Fall Retreat was held at Covenant Point at Hagerman Lake in Iron River, Michigan. The theme was "Spiritual Contentment"."

As we look forward to our future as women who long for all God has for each of us, it is very important that we advance the Kingdom of God wherever we are and wherever we are called according to His Purpose.

As the Central Conference Leadership Team looks at where we are headed, it is important to pray, fast and seek Him first and not be distracted by life’s issues which can keep us stagnant. I thank God for our leader, Meagan Gillan, Director of Women Ministries, who has encouraged us to stay focused as we develop Deborahs through Make and Deepen Disciples. I implore each of you to connect as it is a large organization that offers many opportunities as you can see in our newsletter.

We will be voting to fill vacancies due to terms ending, as well as to fill vacancies for your next President and Vice President- and filling other offices that have opened due to terms ending in 2017.

We have updated our constitution which will give you an understanding of each position and what the qualifications and expectations are to hold an office on the WMCC Leadership team. We want to bring the best leaders to assist you in ministry. I pray that you hear or see something that will spur you on.

Through your generous donations, we are able to offer grants for scholarships, as well as support projects both locally and nationally.

I stand firm in God’s word and works: "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me".

Thelma E. Lawson
President of Women Ministry of the Central Conference—
"there is room at the altar for all women"

From the Heart of Our President

Human Trafficking is Modern Day Slavery
