CHILD SEXUAL EXPLOITATION AND SLAVERY
It’s a scourge on modern society. Millions of children around the world are trafficked or trapped in sexual exploitation with little hope for freedom. We bring freedom. We shine a light in the darkness.
This is the crucial first step. Children are bound either by physical chains or psychological ones and our rescue agents’ job is to bring the girls out of darkness. Posing as customers, they seek to win the child’s trust before making an offer to take them to a safe rescue home.
If Rescue is the starter’s gun, then Restoration is the marathon. This is where the long yet joyful healing process begins. Rescued children are taken to safe houses where they sleep safely, receive education, vocational training, counseling and healthcare, spiritual guidance and, most importantly, love.
We strive to bring children out of darkness, but we’d rather they weren’t there in the first place. We have Prevention Homes in different countries where we care for at-risk children – often siblings of rescued girls – until they of age to find safe employment or higher education.
It’s often the desperation of poverty that sees children being trafficked into sexual exploitation. Through educating poor communities about trafficking and helping establish small business projects, we give at-risk communities a hand-up, not a hand out.
WE ARE A VOICE
When you’re trapped in darkness, no-one can hear you. These children are going through, or have been through, hell on earth, and few seem to be listening. These children don’t have voices of their own so we are shouting for them. We want everyone to know about this evil. We want everyone to do something to help.
BUSINESS ON PURPOSE
With members across the United States, The C12 Group is America’s leading Christian chief executive roundtable. We serve businesses with 5 to 5,000+ employees with annual revenues from $1 million to $1 billion+. C12 is a unique forum for Kingdom-focused business leaders to convene for a time of mutual sharpening and high-impact learning to grow as stewards and Ambassadors for Christ.
THE C12 EXPERIENCE
The C12 Group is not about networking. It’s not another business-centric Bible study. It’s an objective advisory board for brainstorming and decision making, learning what you don’t know and focusing on areas you need to sharpen. In a confidential, non-competing trusted C12 peer board, you’ll learn from your group’s wisdom and insight – and encourage and hold each other accountable to the principles and core values that guide you. You’ll learn to lead while living one integrated life under the Lordship of Christ.
MONTHLY PEER ADVISORY BOARD
At the core of C12 is the monthly advisory board meeting, a gathering of 10-15 Christian CEOs and business owners who convene once a month, for a full day, to work through a structured business curriculum and to go deep together. Each meeting is facilitated by a dedicated, full-time, C12 Chair who personifies C12’s intentionality and is an experienced business executive.
MONTHLY ONE-ON-ONE COUNSEL
Each month, C12 members enjoy a time of individualized one-on-one counsel with their local Chair. These 60-90 minute sessions address a range of topics, and are far superior to executive coaching alone. Your C12 Chair gets to know your unique situation and provides objective, informed and Biblical insights on your business and ministry.
C12’s PROPRIETARY RESOURCES
Since 1992, The C12 Group has provided members with MBA-level, high-impact materials and proven processes built on best business practices and Biblical principles. C12 materials are current and relevant in today’s business environment, but always grounded in the timeless principles of Scripture. You’ll have access to a wide range of resources designed to strengthen and enhance business, leadership, and eternal results.
NATIONAL NETWORK OF C12 PEERS
Perhaps one of the greatest advantages of C12 is the opportunity to connect with other like-minded Christian executives across the country. You can search and find businesses and peer leaders through the C12 Member Directory. You’ll also benefit from national and regional leaders conferences and workshops, where members gather to be refreshed, renewed, and encouraged.
Daring to stand in the gap between heat and cold.
