Become an IJM Freedom Church

Join a global movement of churches fighting to end slavery and violence in our lifetime.

What is an IJM Freedom Church?

Freedom Churches partner with IJM in the work of justice in three ways: Generosity, Prayer, Action. Becoming an IJM Freedom Church is a way for your whole church to connect with God’s heart for justice by committing to prayer, action and generosity in the movement to end slavery in our lifetime.

If God has put this call on your heart, catalyse your church for justice by becoming a Freedom Church.

What is the link between church and justice?

40+ million people are trapped in slavery today. As God’s people, we can help change the story.

We worship a God of justice whose cry is “Let my people go!” and who calls us to stand up for those who are oppressed, exploited and in poverty.

Begin your journey of justice.

IJM Freedom Churches are key partners in the fight to see slavery ended. Freedom Churches are churches who commit to Prayer, Action and Generosity.

It starts with you

When you make contact using the form below, a member of our Church Mobilisation team will be in touch to help you begin your journey. It's not just church leaders who can sign up (though we'd love that if that's you!) - our Church Champions don't have to be staff or leaders, they can be a church member who's passionate about justice. We’ll provide you with all you need to talk to your church about taking the first steps to becoming a Freedom Church.

Together, we can build a future free from slavery and violence.

As your church continues to engage in prayer, action and generosity, you’ll receive an IJM Freedom Church certificate to celebrate your ongoing commitment to freedom and justice. But becoming a Freedom Church is just the start of the journey - we want to partner with you for the long term, providing you with personal contact, resources and news from the frontline.

IJM’s commitment to church partners:

News from the frontline. Be the first to know what's happening on the frontline of the fight for justice, and receive up to the minute prayer requests from the field.

Personal IJM contact. A dedicated IJM contact from our Church Mobilisation team will provide you with ongoing support as you make freedom and justice part of your church's DNA, and you will have unique opportunities to request IJM speakers.

Tailored resources. We'll assist you with resources and digital assets to inspire your church family to engage deeply with issues of justice and the fight for freedom.

What's it like being a Freedom Church with IJM?

"The more I learn about IJM's work, the more I treasure our small involvement. We are honoured to partner with their life-changing work across the world. May God continue to impress upon us His heart for justice - and what that looks like!"

Laura Campbell Lead pastor, Re:Hope West End, Glasgow

"IJM has helped our church's step-by-step journey of discovering God's heart for the oppressed. It has has awakened us to hugely disturbing instances of injustice across the globe, but also inspired us with incredible stories of rescue, restoration, healing and hope. It has been a privilege to partner with IJM in recent years."

Gordon Best Minister, Newmills Presbyterian, Northern Ireland

"IJM helps you think, pray and live differently. A global organisation, working in local contexts, it helps us as a church see the world as God sees it - and resolve to see it become the way it should be. Their work is dangerous, life saving and, sadly, vital."

Dave Richards Reverend, St Paul’s & St George’s, Edinburgh

"I am excited that the church I lead is becoming a Freedom Church but I get really excited when I think about what would happen if lots of churches partner with IJM."

Rich Johnson Vicar, All Saints Worcester
