• MINISTRY TO VICTIMS OF SEXUAL EXPLOITATION MAJOR

    According to UNICEF, as many as two million children are subjected to prostitution in the global commercial sex trade. Sex trafficking has devastating consequences for minors, including long-lasting physical and psychological trauma, disease (including HIV/AIDS), drug addiction, unintended pregnancy, malnutrition, social ostracism and death. Sexual exploitation is a problem both in the United States and internationally.

    The Ministry to Victims of Sexual Exploitation Major prepares students for the ministry of advocacy and restoration to those who are the victims of sexual exploitation. This preparation combines thorough biblical training and strategic partnership with skilled ministry practitioners.
