Faith in Action Kit

All attendees will receive our a free Faith in Action Kit! Designed to equip church leaders with the most comprehensive array of tools to raise awareness in their community, the Faith in Action Kit prepares the user to educate men, women, youth and faith leaders with audience-appropriate resources. The tools can be used in sermons or Sunday School, on retreats, with VBS and youth camp.

EXHIBITORS

You’ll want to visit the Exhibitor tables and find out how others are fighting to end sex trafficking around the world! The exhibitors at the Faith Summit showcase organizations, businesses, and ministries with their fair trade products, survivor-led organization products and information, non-profit services and ways to help, along with businesses dedicated to ending sex trafficking! Conveniently located in the thoroughfare by the dining hall, each exhibitor is here to enhance your experience. Plan to get acquainted with these passionate people and find out what they have to offer you!

There’s something for everyone! Exhibits feature free giveaways and for sale items such as unique gifts, clothing, training tools, free educational materials, puppets, kits, message hats, books, organic bath & body products, survivor-made apparel, inspirational products and accessories – there’s so much more waiting for you at the Summit!

COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS

We believe students and professors are key to the fight against sex trafficking. In order to make this Summit more affordable, you can apply for a scholarship which provides FREE REGISTRATION and FREE dorm housing. We will give out 50 scholarships to selected students and faculty members in this field. To apply completely fill out the application and email to scholarships@sharedhope.org.
We know you've been really busy with finals so we've extended the application deadline to June 1, 2018!

VOLUNTEERS

Volunteers are an essential part of the event’s success. Shared Hope is looking for students and local community leaders with a heart to serve and time to donate. Staffing the event is no easy task! Volunteers are the hands and feet behind the scenes, responsible for a host of duties including (but not limited to) set up, registration, facilitating workshops, directing attendees, and much more.

Benefits to volunteering include access to the conference plenary sessions and Thursday evening concert. We need you!

Register to Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the 2018 Faith Summit. We are grateful for your time and welcome you to the team! Please understand that during your volunteer shift, our first priority will be to assign you to a specific task and location to help support the conference coordination. You may or may not be able to listen in on the plenary and sessions during your shift. If you would prefer a full conference experience (choosing the workshops you’d like to attend, free time to network and socialize with other attendees, etc.) then we would encourage you to attend the conference as a registered attendee. We wouldn’t want you to be disappointed with your experience and need our volunteers to be fully engaged with supporting the behind the scenes responsibilities..

If you understand these responsibilities, and want to volunteer, please fill out the information requested below, and we will be in touch with you with additional details about your shift and assignments. The conference is a lot of work, and our volunteers are so important to it operating smoothly and to its overall success. Thank you!

Email events@sharedhope.org if you have questions.

What People Are Saying About Shared Hope’s JuST Faith Summit

caret-down caret-up caret-left caret-right
"Living in a small rural community I felt it opened many eyes to an epidemic that churches were not aware of before, much less that it is going on in this area. Often times people believe this only happens in other countries or big cities, to be able to make them aware is important and essential in reaching out to others."

"The Faith Summit is a wonderful teaching resource for the church and the community. As a Christian professor, my students were excited at the quality of information that was available and the resources to implement them with minimal difficulty."

"The tools I received equipped me to present quality information on sex-trafficking to a wide variety of populations. It has given me the confidence to speak on the issue of trafficking as well as provide people with hope on how to end the issue of sex-trafficking in their town!"

"We are continuing to use the Faith in Action Toolkit that we received and are so grateful for access to such high caliber resources. Thank you so much for sharing them with us! We always highlight Shared Hope when we use these tools and point to your website for other great resources. Because of your generosity in sharing what you have, literally 3000+ more people in Northern Colorado have been awakened to the issue of DMST. Thank you!"
