Human Trafficking Awareness

Annual Conference adopted Resolution 2014-06, which had been introduced by Youth Annual Conference.  The resolution is a call to advocate for the enforcement of the Human Trafficking laws in Ohio.

Conference Council on Youth Ministries has since partnered with All Pro HDTM to create a video to bring human trafficking awareness to our churches and schools. 

Please watch the video trailer and consider investing in this ministry.  You can donate through your local church to Video Fund 9108 East Ohio Human Trafficking.
