REAL TALK

Frequently Asked Questions

What is REAL TALK?

REAL TALK is a transformative journey for faith communities and organizations, paving the way to next-level freedom and a cultural shift toward transparency, authenticity, and safeguarding. This comprehensive program offers a train-the-trainer approach, featuring an immersive small group model, personalized pathways for growth, and continuous coaching and consulting support. By building a safe environment for processing and healing, REAL TALK equips participants with systemic tools from kindergarten through Leadership. It tackles challenging issues entrenched in secrecy and shame, empowering ministries to fortify themselves and embrace the fullness of their God-given purpose.

Why is REAL TALK needed now?

After more than a decade of experience in anti-trafficking, we've come to understand that trafficking serves as a symptom of deeper issues. To truly address the problem, we must intervene at its roots. Trafficking often stems from a culture of secrecy, shame, and addiction (yes, even in ministries!), which perpetuates the cycle by grooming men to become consumers and women to be exploited and abused.

REAL TALK is founded on the principle of addressing these underlying issues proactively. It goes beyond merely tackling sexual traumas; it aims to address the core factors of secrecy, shame, and life-controlling issues that manifest later in life. REAL TALK serves as both a preventive and healing measure, empowering believers to embrace their God-given purpose fully. Additionally, it serves as a safeguard for ministries and leaders, mitigating the risk of scandals and backlash in the future. This unique pathway was created to not only help individuals become free... but free indeed!
