Our guest speaker will be Jenni Jessen

As an American survivor of human trafficking Jenni Jessen, knows the depths of trauma a body can endure but she also knows the great lengths Jesus will go to redeem those held in captivity. She was sold into the sex trade at age four but God provided for her rescue and escape at age 17. Now Jenni puts the love of Christ into practice by empowering other survivors to be catalyst for change and training national leaders to prevent human trafficking through education.

Jenni Jessen and her husband, KJ, are creators of Priceless Cube. Since 2013, they have equipped more than 2,500 leaders from 40 different countries to effectively combat human trafficking through education. To date, tens of thousands of people globally have heard this high-impact prevention message. www.pricelesscube.com.

KJ and Jenni are also founders and directors of Compass 31. A ministry that provides a holistic model of restoration that includes safe housing, education scholarships and daycare for young women who have been rescued from exploitation. More information on their work can be found at www.compass31.org.
