Modern day human trafficking statistics are staggering. The World Health Organization believes this 150 billion dollar industry enslaves 45 million people worldwide. Despite the magnitude of this pandemic, Jerry Redman and his team at Second Life believe that, together, we can eradicate this assault on human dignity. In conversation with William, Jerry calls for leaders to engage this issue, speaks to how his faith connects to this fight, and shares stories of hope in which ordinary people mobilize to rescue victims of human trafficking.

Faithful Christian mission includes more than preaching. In his book Where the Cross Meets the Street, Noel Castellanos describes his dissatisfaction with the proclamation-only approach and looks at the life of Jesus for a more holistic way to engage our neighborhoods. He believes in the cross God enters our suffering and cares for the vulnerable, and the Christian's duty is to do the same. This entails moving into the neighborhood, engaging both proclamation and formation, demonstrating compassion, seeking restoration and development, and confronting injustice where it may be found. In this episode, Noel joins William to discuss how the radical story of the cross should shape the Church's presence in our communities.

Noel serves as the President of the Christian Community Development Association.

Pick up a copy of Noel's book, Where the Cross Meets the Street: What Happens to the Neighborhood When God is at the Center.
