Brian and Melissa Leak are the European Liaisons on the issue of sex trafficking with WorldVenture.  They focus on equipping and mobilizing Christians across Europe to engage in the fight against sex trafficking

There is a vital need for Christians to become aware of the sex trafficking issue and our responsibility to act. Their ministry is: 1) to create this awareness; 2) to equip believers to engage in anti-trafficking ministries; and 3) to connect believers to anti-trafficking ministries that are an ideal fit for their passions and skill set.
