Whether you are a student pastor, volunteer leader or student, we want you to help tell the stories of persecuted Christians. As they suffer for the sake of the Gospel, we strive to follow their lead in unashamedly sharing our faith with those around us, refusing to give up in freedom what they are not willing to give up in persecution. We choose to live our lives in such a way that we may strengthen what remains. Invite your youth group, college dorm or small group, and join the Open Doors Fortify community.
Persecution changes lives every day, but the needs of the persecuted church don’t disappear overnight. Our brothers and sisters need us to pray but also to give.
We believe your support of the persecuted church can be as constant as our ever-changing world, and Change for Change is about meeting those needs. Partner with us and collect your spare change to bring change in the lives of those facing persecution.
BLACKOUT is designed to help you understand not only what it means to be persecuted but to count the cost other Christians pay for their faith.
For 48 hours, we want you to stay off social media and silence your cell phone. Help us raise awareness and funds for persecuted Christians – not only in honor of those who have lost their lives but in solidarity with them.
Can you go off-the-grid for 48 hours? We think so!
More information coming soon!
This bible study series will help you stand up for your faith, and stand with our persecuted family.
We want to look at the causes and effects of persecution: how sometimes the most heartbreaking times bring the biggest growth; how we can stand in love despite being hated; how we have a Savior who is greater than death, bigger than any barriers, greater than kings and absolutely passionate to see His people saved.
