Dedicate one Sunday at your church to stand up for people who are oppressed.


Your church can combat slavery & send rescue. Here's how.

Freedom Sunday is an opportunity for your entire church family to deepen their understanding of God’s heart for justice, discover the realities of modern slavery and join the fight to end it.

Join over 15,000 churches around the world who have hosted a Freedom Sunday and used their voice to stand up for justice. Sign up today and you’ll get step-by-step planning guides, sermon tools and a variety of free resources for both adults and children.

Your church is part of God’s plan to end slavery.

Experience the joy of connecting to God’s heart for justice with churches around the world.

With millions of people living in slavery around the world today, many Christians wonder, “How can I help? Can I even make a difference?”


Freedom Sunday will educate, engage and empower your church to actively live out its faith in a fresh and authentic way. Freedom Sunday is a chance for adults, teens, kids and grandparents to gather together to pray and stand up for justice.

From the shores of Lake Volta in Ghana to your own place of worship, the global church is uniquely positioned to make a staggering impact in the lives of the children, women and men living in slavery.

As a gathering place and community, you can combat trafficking together as a church family. In the past two years alone, Freedom Sunday has raised over $1.4 million to help provide rescue and restoration to victims of slavery and violence.

Join this global movement of justice today.

"Our partnership with IJM over the years has been a catalyst for an evolving paradigm shift within our congregation. IJM has given us the opportunity to stand with them in the Gospel work of Justice and to rediscover a God who weeps and acts for those who suffer.”


We care about
your church.

When the church moves, it brings transformation. We want to help Christians embrace their identity as the hands and feet of Jesus.
