RPC Missions’ Role
The role God has allowed Rock Point Church to have starting with Vision Abolition and now with StreetLightUSA has been the tip of the spear in fighting for the victims of sex trafficking and exploitation. Since Rock Point Church heard about the movement that now is being done by StreetLightUSA we have had a passion to assist in any way possible. RPC Missions fully supports StreetLightUSA’s three-pronged approach to fulfilling its mission through direct care, prevention, and public awareness. The work they do with victims of the sex trade industry is an extremely urgent and sensitive process to bring them from the abuse they have suffered – providing physical and medical treatments; emotional and mental health counseling; social and relationship assistance; educational development; skill training with the goal of independence.
Rock Point Church donates monetarily to StreetLightUSA monthly and several Rock Point Church Members volunteer their time and talents to support StreetLightUSA’s efforts every month.
RPC Missions will continue to support StreetLightUSA monetarily and provide assistance where needed to fight for the victims of a spiritual war.
