Persecuted Believers

The Persecuted Church –

Persecuted Believers
There are nearly 300 million Christians who are suffering intense persecution. In
Asia it is estimated that 2 out of every 5 countries persecute believers. Christians
in these persecution hot spots suffer the confiscation of property, closure and
destruction of churches, loss of jobs, house arrest, beatings, imprisonment, and
even martyrdom. 

Care – Retreats for Persecuted Pastors and Leaders
Our response to growing persecution has been to bring persecuted pastors and
leaders together to care for them. At these retreats we encourage them, love on
them, and give them a place to cry and share their story. Biblical Training is
given to help these leaders care for their persecuted flocks better.

Prayer and Awareness
From behind the scenes we are mobilizing prayer for the persecuted church and
bringing awareness to the larger body of Christ.

Strategic Partnerships.                                                                                                                      Through a large network of relationships in the persecuted world we have
developed key partnerships working in the top 10 countries where persecution
makes following Jesus extremely costly. One of our partners even works in the
number 1 country.

Financial Support
When those leaders we are in relationship with suffer persecution or someone
under their care suffers we often raise funds to help in their time of distress.
Persecution can affect a Christian leaders income.

The Nations
I have personally ministered in 8 countries on the top 50 list of most persecuted
places. Two of those countries are in the top 10. It is our discretion here to not
call out any country by name. The reason for this is for our own security as we
often travel to some of these countries and for the security of those we work
with. To find out the specific countries where we are working, please contact us.

What Persecuted Believers want us to Know
Many leaders from the persecuted church world want to believers in free
countries to know that they are not giving up on the faith. They ask you to stand
with them in prayer. They are not asking for persecution to stop but that they
would be found faithful.
