A Campaign to Fight Human Trafficking
The mission of Texas Annual Conference, Center for Missional Excellence is making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world to the glory of God. Therefore, we are focusing our 2017 efforts to make a difference in the fight against human trafficking.

- There are over 83,000 labor and sex trafficking victims in Texas every year | There are over 20,000 labor and sex trafficking victims in Houston every year
