Ending sex trafficking and sexual exploitation through prayer, awareness, intervention and aftercare.

Elijah Rising is ending sex trafficking and sexual exploitation by equipping a new generation of justice warriors to confront culture through prayer, awareness, intervention and aftercare in the spirit of Isaiah 1:17.

Learn to do good. Seek justice. Rebuke the oppressor. Defend the fatherless. Plead for the widow. Isaiah 1:17 (NKJV)

Prayer

Elijah Rising operates on a foundation of prayer. We believe that sex trafficking and sexual exploitation are spiritual issues. Our staff hosts two informal prayer meetings a week as well as musician-led prayer at every outreach. We encourage churches and worship teams to engage this issue in individual and corporate prayer. For more information, e-mail prayer@elijahrising.org.

 

Awareness

Injustice thrives in the darkness. We aim to drive the reality of sex trafficking and sexual exploitation into the conscience of our society through van tours and our Museum of Modern-Day Slavery, a 1,000 square foot exhibit that combines information and artifacts to tell the story of sex trafficking in our city. Our staff is also available for speaking engagements, documentary screenings, and Q&A panels. For more information, e-mail admin@elijahrising.org

 

Intervention

Elijah Rising fights sex trafficking by training people to reach men and women trapped in sexual exploitation. We host open interventions twice a month, and offer training to anyone wanting to get involved with hands on intervention. For more information, e-mailĀ intervention@elijahrising.org.

 

Aftercare

When women are freed from sex trafficking, many of them need a family and a home. Kendleton Farms is an 84-acre community for adult female survivors and their children. Kendleton Farms has access to counseling, equine therapy, organic gardens, a family environment, and an opportunity for reliable income. The Farm is currently operating, but still needs renovations and support. For more information, e-mail Kendleton@elijahrising.org.

The History of Our Headquarters

In Galleria West, one of the most sexualized districts of Houston, our headquarters building stands as a beacon of light. 5818 Southwest Freeway is a building that once housed an Asian brothel called Angela Day Spa.

Angela Day Spa was an original stop on our Van Tours, and we had followed its activities for many years. After intervening with the property owner in 2013, we signed a lease on the property and watched as the traffickers were evicted.

To learn the full story of our headquarters, visit our Museum of Modern-Day Slavery.

Isaiah 58:6

Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke; to set the oppressed free and break every yoke?

Luke 18:7

And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly.
