FBC to host event on human trafficking

Local women from the Brewton community can take part in a special women’s event sponsored by the First Baptist Church.

Karen Whitt of FBC said the event is hosted by the Women of Worth Ministry Outreach Event of the church.

There will be a dinner on Tues., March 6, at 6 p.m., at the Bell Chapel fellowship hall of the church.

“The guest speaker for the evening is Chris Ziebach, the founder of Camille Place, a ministry established in 2015 with the mission to provide rehabilitation for children under the age of 18 who have been victims of the human trafficking industry,” she said.

Whitt said Ziebach will provide awareness to how the sexual exploitation of minors has infiltrated society, as well as speaking about the specifics of the ministry, and practical ways to help and support Camille Place.

“Donations of money and gift cards to places like Walmart and Marvin’s will be collected that evening as well,” she said.

Whitt said anyone needing more information about Camille Place can visit the ministry’s website at camilleplace.org.

Pre-registration for the event is suggested, but is not necessary, to attend.

Whitt said a monetary collection will be take up at the door to help defray the cost of the meal.

“Although all women are invited to attend, including our teenage ladies, because of the sensitivity of the topic to be discussed, mothers are advised to bring their daughters along at their own personal discretion,” she said.

Please call the FBC office to pre-register or with additional question, at 251.867.5769.
