Invite Josie or Brad Carignan, the founders of Rescue Her, to speak at your church, conference or community event. They are passionate about the fight agains trafficking and can tailor their message to suit your event and audience.
After witnessing the horrific effects of human trafficking, Josie founded Rescue Her in 2009. Together Brad and Josie now lead the work of Rescue Her and are also the lead pastors of New Life Family Church in Euless, TX.
Josie was born and raised in Sweden. Her childhood was centered around ministry and church, as her dad was a pastor and traveling minister. Her family would often take ministry or mission's trips as their vacation. Josie's desire even as a young girl was to reach people who had not yet heard about God's love and to help those in need. Her life has reflected this passion. She and Brad married while doing youth ministry and have continued to serve in ministry and missions work both in the US and overseas ever since.
Josie travels and speaks at churches, schools and women's events. She is passionate about ministering to young adults and women and seeing them equipped and raised up to be all that God has called them to be. Her teaching is transparent and honest as she relates the Word of God with her testimony in a way that inspires and encourages others to step into their God-given destiny so they can be the hands and feet of Jesus on the earth.
Josie sees life as a God adventure and loves encouraging others to follow their God-given dreams. Two of her favorite Bible verses are Micah 6:8 "Act justly, love mercy, walk humbly" and Prov 31:25 "She is clothed with strength and dignity; She can laugh at the days to come." A few of her favorite things are traveling, sidewalk cafes, chocolate, music and walking in the rain.
Brad Carignan is the president and co-founder of Rescue Her. As a pastor he sees the need for the church to be the voice for those trapped in slavery. His teaching is bold and practical, and his humourous teaching style make the deep truths of God’s Word easily applicable. Brad wears his heart on his sleeve, and never more so than when he is preaching. He is passionate to see the Body of Christ grow deeper in faith, power, and hunger for the Lord. Brad and his wife Josie have served as missionaries in several nations and a missions heart permeates his ministry. Together Brad and Josie lead Rescue Her and serve as the lead pastors of New Life Family Church in Euless, TX. They have three lovely children, Joy, Joshua and Jordana.
