The Association of Nazarene Sociologists and Researchers (ANSR) have held their annual conference every year since 1982. ANSR is a group of social researchers within the Church of the Nazarene. Each year the conference covers a specific topic that affects the Church of the Nazarene. For the 33rd ANSR Conference in 2014, the topic was modern slavery, modern abolition, and human trafficking. How does the church respond to the over 27 million slaves around the world?
