Lost & Found is a ministry that developed in 2009 after my Fellowship with Polaris, an anti-human trafficking NGO in Washington D.C. Upon returning to Ohio I knew that I needed to raise awareness and educate people on the issue. Over the last 8 years I have addressed more than a thousand people in my introductory human trafficking presentations. In 2013 I began pursuing a Master’s degree in Social Justice and Community Development. My intent was to sharpen my skills with a degree and to ultimately fight human trafficking as a full time vocation. However, within the first semester I learned that community development is the method in which I am called to fight human trafficking, as well as any other social injustice that occurs in our communities. As my education has continued I have realized that I believe in a specific approach to community development called Asset Based Community Development (ABCD). I have been drawn to this specific approach because I think it best supports the Biblical principle of human dignity. Here enters the third part of my ministry’s triad - the church. Scriptures that support the concepts of social justice and community development are littered throughout the Bible. I think the church is the right body of people to initiate change in their local communities to bring about unity and well-being for everyone.
