There are more than 40 million slaves across our world today. This reality is overwhelming, but we are not overcome.

The end of slavery begins with God's people. It begins with you.

Join us at the IJM Austin Prayer Gathering and boldly pray for the freedom of every child, woman and man being abused, trafficked and enslaved across our world. Experience powerful prayer and worship, hear stories from the front lines of IJM's work to rescue slaves and transform nations, and join a community committed to ending slavery and injustice—until all are free. Come prepared for an evening of prayer, unlike anything you have ever experienced.
