Human trafficking is the fastest-growing criminal industry in the world, with more than 40 million victims worldwide. Simply put, human trafficking is any time a person is forced, tricked, or manipulated into providing labor or sexual service for someone else’s financial gain; or, anytime a child is involved in a commercial sex act, whether or not there is someone directly forcing them to do so.
We believe God created all people to live in freedom, and, as His people, we’re called to fight for that freedom for others.
That’s why Unbound exists. Unbound is Antioch’s anti-human trafficking ministry, working to mobilize the Church and activate local communities to fight human trafficking. Since 2012, Unbound Waco has empowered more than 10,000 youth to stay safe, trained thousands of professionals to identify and respond to human trafficking, and served more than 340 victims and survivors in our community. Unbound Waco also provides leadership to the Heart of Texas Human Trafficking Coalition.
Additionally, Unbound Global has launched new locations across the United States and around the world through the Antioch Movement.
