Church Partners Give the Gift of Freedom

Over the Advent season, two churches invited Nomi Network to share their global mission of eradicating human trafficking.

Co-founder and Vice President Alissa Moore spoke at both Forefront Church and Everyday Church, joined by key volunteers Kala and Matt Mueller, Kelli McDaniel and Holly Ernst who helped sell Nomi Network bags to those in attendance.

The churches gave financially to the non-profit’s work by matching half the cost of each bag or item sold during the services. The generosity shown by both communities was truly inspiring and many of the items in their inventory sold out day-of. For the team, it was incredible to see hearts and minds impassioned by Nomi Network’s vision to empower victims of sexual slavery. Many attendees visited Nomi Network’s Holiday Booth at Union Square, and are still offering to volunteer their time and talent to contribute in specific areas.

In both churches, the warm reception of the attendees and the poignant message about the meaning of justice underlined the importance of giving back to the community and to those in need. It was clear that accepting people as they are is a gift that flows naturally from Forefront and Everyday Church members.

Nomi Network wants to thank Forefront and Everyday Church once again for their generosity and enthusiasm for our work. We are honored by these partnerships and are excited to see the growth that is bound to happen as these church bodies become a force of love and hope in both local and global communities.
