Stand with the Persecuted

Stand with the Persecuted Sunday

“Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them, and those who are mistreated, since you also are in the body.” Hebrews 13:3 (ESV)

We are calling on churches across America to observe April 17, 2016 as Stand with the Persecuted Sunday.  Please make time during your weekend services to view a brief, 2-minute video, distribute a special bulletin insert, and spend time in prayer for our persecuted brothers and sisters internationally.  While believers face growing hostility in America, we have experienced nothing like the mistreatment, displacement, violence, rape, crucifixions, and beheadings experienced by followers of Jesus in Iraq, Syria, Libya, other parts of the Middle East and beyond.  We are honored to partner with ministries like Open Doors USA, The Voice of the MartyrsInstitute on Religion and Democracy, In Defense of Christians, Christian Solidarity Worldwide-USA, International Christian Concern, 21st Century Wilberforce, and others who are highlighting the plight of the persecuted.  Please urge your pastor and church to join us on Sunday, April 17 and Stand with the Persecuted.
