Our movement is named after Orange Scott, born on February 13, 1800. Scott entered the ministry as a Methodist pastor in 1822 and seemed destined for greatness in the Methodist Episcopal denomination. Around the year 1833, he became an earnest antislavery worker, and his zeal for this cause got him into trouble with the church hierarchy. Orange Scott became convinced that “holy hearts should result in holy lives and that holy men should seek to bring an end to social evils such as slavery and intemperance.”
The Orange Movement seeks to bring awareness to the issue of human trafficking, to be the feet of Christ in supporting the rescue of those held in slavery, and to rally the voice of “the church” to be the light for both the victims and the perpetrators of human trafficking to find the one true way to freedom.
