Welcome Connectors! The resources on this page are intended for volunteer Connectors to use with your churches, Sunday school classes, home groups, families, personal networks or other places where the Lord provides opportunities to share about our persecuted brothers and sisters.

Revelation 3:2

“Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have found your deeds unfinished in the sight of my God.”

1 Peter 4:10

“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”
