We are proud to introduce you to our Board of Directors. We have a wonderful group of dedicated individuals that sit on our Board of Directors. They are committed to growing our organization in order to more effectively empower those trapped and exploited by the sex industry to live a life of freedom in Christ. As the Executive Director of Four:10 Ministries those on the Board are invaluable to me. They provide so much for our organization.
