“For I, the Lord, love justice.

ISAIAH 61:8

We are so excited for our twelfth annual Justice Matters Sunday on February 5th during all morning services!  Our title this year is “Prevention Is Key".  Our desire is to bring awareness and education about Human Trafficking, encourage prevention steps, and empower people to take action. We will also be highlighting various organizations and ministries that we support and partner with to provide avenues for our church body to get involved. This year we’ll be offering various workshops to provide additional education into some of the specific topics.

              We are privileged and honored to have Leah Albright-Byrd, Executive Director of the Health Movement as our guest speaker this year. (You can read her bio below.)  We hope you will come and spend the day with us as we learn together how we can “speak up for those who can’t speak for themselves” (Proverbs 31:8-9).  Come to one service, attend workshops at another, chat with some of the organizations, and have some lunch. Isaiah 61:8 says, “For I, the Lord, love Justice.” Because He loves justice, so should we! How about Inviting a family member or friend to this awesome day? Hope to see you there!

JUST ADDED!  JM KIDS CARE

We want everyone to be able to take advantage of all that Justice Matters Sunday has to offer for the day.

Executive Director of Health Movement
Speaker and Lived Experience Expert
Leah Albright-Byrd is a compelling speaker, author, and social-entrepreneur
She is best known for her gift of storytelling and her ability to galvanize others to invoke community transformation. She has faithfully served her community as an advocate, direct service provider, and leader in the nonprofit sector for the last 18 years. Leah currently serves as the Executive Director of Health Movement, an organization that prepares senior leaders of nonprofits for transformational impact as they advance health equity. In 2011, she founded and directed a California-based nonprofit that provided an array of services to child and adult survivors of human trafficking. While leading that effort, she became a national and international advocate for the cause, promoted legislative change, and appeared on various media outlets to promote public awareness. She eventually received congressional honor for her activism efforts but due to an experience with major burnout made the decision to focus her energy on uplifting leaders. Because of her intimate knowledge of the needs of nonprofit executives, a passion for upstream work, and a desire for a more equitable and just society, the opportunity to lead Health Movement became the natural progression of her life’s work. Leah possesses a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Theology from William Jessup University and coaching certifications from Western Seminary. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her fiance and bonus kids, plays the guitar, loves hot yoga, and sings on the praise team at her church. Though she is a California-native she considers herself a born-again Texan and resides in Dallas with her sweet dog Charlie Rose.
“He gives justice to the oppressed and food to the hungry. The Lord frees the prisoners. The Lord opens the eyes of the blind. The Lord lifts up those who are weighed down. The Lord loves the godly. The Lord protects the foreigners among us. He cares for the orphans and widows, but He frustrates the plans of the wicked.”

PSALM 146:7-9

These organizations that we partner with will have tables at Justice Matters Sunday.
