History of Trinity’s HOPE Ministry
During the summer of 2012, 60 women in the Women2Night’s Wednesday night summer community gathered weekly for the Mark Batterson Bible Study, The Circle Maker.

The Circle Maker challenged every woman to choose a specific need in her life to “encircle” with focused prayer. In response to the call to prayer in the weekend gathering, the leaders of Women2Night challenged the women in the study that summer to also pray collectively for a second circle: human trafficking.
