Stop Running & Say YES to Your Calling—with Raleigh Sadler - EP 133
The vast majority of Men on Purpose resist their calling in the beginning. We don’t think we’re ready. Or we believe the problem is too big. Or that we’re not good enough. So, how do we develop the courage to say YES to the reason we’re here? And how do we keep moving forward—even when we’re face down in our own frustration?
Raleigh Sadler is the Founder and Executive Director of Let My People Go, a nonprofit dedicated to empowering local churches to fight human trafficking by identifying and responding to their most vulnerable neighbors. Raleigh has 19 years of experience in Christian ministry, and he believes it is the responsibility of the church to love those at risk of exploitation. Raleigh is also the author of Vulnerable: Rethinking Human Trafficking.
On this episode of Men on Purpose, Raleigh joins Emerald to discuss his introduction to the most vulnerable populations and explain how we create the demand for human trafficking with what we buy. He describes how he ran from his calling until the other things he’d been clinging to fell away and how a board of advisors helps him stay true to his mission. Listen in for Raleigh’s insight around the challenges of raising money and staffing a nonprofit and learn how celebrating milestones can help you move forward.
