Elijah Rising was founded in 2012 as a prayer gathering that focused on ending sex trafficking in Houston. Across Houston women and girls were being sold for sex, but there was little outcry, so Elijah Rising began hosting Van Tours and showing the public that sex trafficking is happening across our city.
Elijah Rising is supported by generous donors, grants, foundations, churches, and corporations.
In 2011, a small group of people were deeply struck by the wide-spread injustice of sex trafficking filling their city. They grieved the lack of out cry for those being exploited, oppressed, and sold for sex. This group firmly believed that prayer was the most important and most effective response.
So, a monthly meeting was organized and opened to the public. The prayer meeting grew rapidly as more and more people joined the movement. Soon, they realized that more had to be done to increase awareness of the issue.
