MISSION
Our mission is to seek freedom for the captives. Isaiah 61:1-7.

About
Many of us are anguished over the crimes against humanity—the cruelty and injustices plaguing our world have bled into the fibers of our day to day.

We can no longer hide or escape from news about the growing genocide our Christian brothers and sisters are facing. We can no longer avoid news that reminds us that human slavery is at it’s all time high! Roughly 27 to 30 million individuals are currently caught in the slave trade industry. Horrific acts of evil against innocents are told in the news, featured in Blogs, on Facebook and Twitter. The scope and gravity of it all leaves many of us feeling paralyzed and desperate for solutions. We can no longer hide. Hiding is not an option. We are the light of the world…

Matthew 5:14-16, “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

Christianity is not a label. It’s not a passive commitment. It’s not a sideline hobby. It’s rooted in LOVE…a love rooted in ACTION. We’re called to do as Christ would do,to step into the darkness, shine, heal and set the captives free. In God’s economy the solution must begin with HIM.

We’re praying for His radical intervention! With Him, nothing is impossible. Nothing is too great of a task. Nothing is too dark that light can’t shatter. With Him, deliverance and freedom are possible. We need the tangible intervention of of God Himself.

The impossible becomes REALITY when the body of Christ comes together to seek His face. He rewards those who earnestly seek Him! (Hebrews 11:6)

STAND for those who can’t!

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

Funded Projects

OC Trafficking Prevention: In its initial stages of development, this group is building a platform and resources to provide education on the ongoing issues of human trafficking within Orange County. Funds will be used to print and distribute educational material.

Mexico City: STAND is supporting the ministry, El Pozo de Vida (“The Well of Life of Life), located in Mexico City. They have been on the ground for 10 years and have helped to save many victims. Funds will be used in two ways. First, to support the monthly costs associated with running the safe houses for victims. Second, to help fund travel costs for volunteers going to Mexico City to work with El Pozo. Click here for more information about this ministry.
