ZOE Activate - Human/Sex Trafficking

Human/Sex Trafficking

Welcome to ZOE Activate!

When you hear about the issue of human trafficking...how do you feel? Do you know enough about this world-wide epidemic? Do you long to get involved, but have no idea how to get started?

At ZOE, we desire to help women grow in their understanding and awareness of women’s issues around the world...and are doing this, in part, through ZOE Activate.

Each ZOE Activate Session is a stand-alone event and will take roughly 90 minutes to complete. This edition on human/sex trafficking is the first of what will eventually be five sessions.

How does a ZOE Activate session work?

  • Appoint a facilitator. (This may be you!) The facilitator will go through the material in its entirety and do all of the exercises so that you have first-hand experiential knowledge of the material. It would be good to test all the links to be sure they are in working order. Provide hard copies of the worksheet that are downloadable in course. There will also be other materials that you will need to gather. Don't worry, we will walk you through it all!
  • Invite women to gather. This could be women from your community or church network. Ambience matters! We would encourage you to have a setting that is warm and inviting.(Think cups of tea…and cozy couches.)
  • As a facilitator you will not need to “know” the answers. You will simply create a space for conversation so that learning can occur. Trust that the Holy Spirit is at work in women’s lives inspiring them to engage in Kingdom work. You get to come alongside Him as He does His work. We can’t think of anything more exciting.
  • Invite God to be present in each session and ask for your community to be in prayer as you journey together. God has an agenda for your group!
  • ZOE Activate is not a “for profit” venture. We want quality affordable material to be available for women across Canada. We always gratefully receive donations of support at through our website at www.zoenetwork.ca
