Rev. Sophia Snyder
Justice is Rev. Sophia’s life blood. She is not one to be silent in the midst of injustice: Human slavery: unborn child, children, sexual trafficking, and exploitation of the poor. For Rev. Sophia, Biblical justice is to restore what God has created to be and stay sacred: dignity, wellness and godliness for all. Her justice journey began as a child when she suffered what comes with poverty, even then she developed the heart of God for the downtrodden. Rev. Sophia desires to be one of God’s servants helping the homeless, unborn, trafficked and enslaved to see them become human again.
God has given her opportunities to do missions in the US and abroad. As a young adult, she demonstrated against abortion on campus, worked with the homeless, and trained “youth-at -risk” in leadership /communication. Rev. Sophia prays for: unborn children, human trafficking, sexual exploitation, borders, homelessness, and government malfunctions. The scripture that stands out for her is Isaiah 61:1 – “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and the opening of the prison to those who are bound.”
