Jessica Bartholomew, shared her story of A.C.T. United, a calling by God for this retired police officer to “do something” about youth trafficking, an issue that has effected every county in Minnesota.  The call was to focus on prevention, representation and youth leadership to help solve the issue.  Through a proprietary program called Youth Aware, as well as industry and professional prevention workshops, A.C.T. United is rallying the community together and engaging youth to be a part of the solution. The challenge, the demand for her speaking is outpacing her capacity and the question is where to go from here?


Hear what presenting ministries thought of the evening…..

“Last night was energizing, refreshing and God-inspired. As I walked around to each table, my heart was filled with overwhelming gratitude, knowing that each person was there to put their faith into action.” –  Junita Flowers, Junita’s Jar

“I was prepared to see the work being done on the business, but what I didn’t expect was the way God showed up to support me personally and spiritually tonight through the different people in the room.  It was amazing.”” – Jessica Bartholomew, A.C.T. United
