Our Team

Jennifer Roemhildt Tunehag’s ministry began in Athens, Greece, where she served women and men exploited in prostitution for over a decade, starting a local ministry that continues to build bridges of help and hope there.  Jennifer later worked with colleagues to create the European Freedom Network (EFN).   She continues to serve the network in the area of church engagement.

She is tasked with church engagement and network development for the World Freedom Network.  “Fighting human trafficking may seem like a specialized calling,” Tunehag says, “but we believe that the Church has a unique and crucial role in prevention and restoration.”

She is also active in developing business solutions to address human trafficking.  Jennifer helped start the Freedom Business Alliance, a global network of enterprises creating healing jobs for survivors of exploitation.  She is married to Mats Tunehag, a global leader in the Business as Mission (BAM) movement.  The couple lives in Sweden and Washington, DC.

Silvia Brynjolfson is from Argentina where, upon graduating from the Biblical Institute of Buenos Aires, she moved to Canada to study at Regent College. After completing her studies Silvia began her career as a missionary serving with WEC International in Spain, later married with her first child, in Equatorial Guinea, and eventually back to Vancouver where she and her husband were the founders of a missionary training centre. It was during this stage that Silvia became aware of the WEA and the Women’s Commission.  Silvia began a new career teaching Spanish at Trinity Western University and to support this she pursued further studies eventually completing 2 additional master’s and a doctorate in modern languages. During these years Silvia also became associated with a prayer movement called WakeUp Deborah and began to build the Spanish network which now enjoys a presence in 20 countries. The vision of this movement summarized in three words – prayer, action, and compassion – led Silvia to become involved with the WEA Women’s Commission, and the Anti-human Trafficking Task Force. While serving as the coordinator for the WEA Women’s Commission in Latin America Silvia became aware of other women with an interest or an involvement in anti-human trafficking. Now as a Co-founder of the Latin Forum Fight Against Human Trafficking, Silvia and her colleague Bibiana MacLeod are building a network in Latin America, Portugal and Spain. Presently there are over 200 members from 20 countries.
