One Church United to End Slavery

Sunday 22 September 2019

Freedom Sunday is an invitation for your congregation
to learn about slavery and partner with IJM to end it.

Dedicate Sunday 22 September to ending slavery, and your church
can help send rescue children, women and men living in slavery.

Attend a Freedom Sunday event Watch a livestreamed service (15 Sep)

When you host Freedom Sunday, you will:

See the problem of slavery

With more than 40 million slaves 
in the world today, the scope of slavery is immense.

Understand God’s heart to end it

Your church will learn what it looks like to “seek justice and defend the oppressed” in our world.

Join us in the fight

Invite your congregation to join IJM as Freedom Partners in the fight to end slavery—until all are free!
