Tim Ballard details
Ballard gained fame after Jim Caviezel portrayed him in the Eduardo Verástegui-directed movie, The Sound of Freedom. It is currently the 10th highest-grossing film this year. And has brought in over $183 million.
The film told Tim’s story as he set up OUR, an anti-child-trafficking organization. And was active around the globe in efforts to save children who had been trafficked.
Tim Ballard also served on an anti-trafficking White House advisory council during Donald Trump’s presidency between late 2019 and 2020.
And he is now claiming that he is “very seriously considering” running for Mitt Romney’s Utah Senate seat.
A spokesperson for the church has allegedly told Vice News that although Elder Ballard once had a close relationship with Tim Ballard—to whom he is not related—the OUR founder “betrayed their friendship, through the unauthorized use of President Ballard’s name for Tim Ballard’s personal advantage and activity regarded as morally unacceptable.”
