Will you use your social media accounts to help persecuted Christians?
It’s obvious that certain celebrities or public figures have “social influence.” When they share an idea, a lot of people listen. But it’s not just celebrities. At Open Doors, we believe that ordinary people like us have equally important influence on the people in our networks.
Brother Andrew, the founder of Open Doors, is a great example of this. He was an ordinary man who didn’t at all expect that his life might one day influence millions. Rather, he started small when he acted to bring a small amount of Christian materials to one specific group of people who needed them. But as Andrew followed God’s promptings to care for more and more persecuted Christians he learned about, his influence grew. And his work now continues through Open Doors, which is still serving persecuted believers in more than 60 countries over 60 years later!
We believe God is still raising up ordinary people to help use their everyday influence to serve God’s kingdom. And you may be one of them!
We know that as you follow Jesus, you will likely choose to volunteer in a variety of ways through your church and other ministries. So we ask you to consider whether “persecution” could be one of those areas where you might commit to serve God throughout your life. We need more ordinary people like you to join us in being the Brother Andrews of this generation by using your social media accounts to share what God is doing in and through persecuted Christians around the globe.
When you volunteer to become an Influencer, we commit to provide you the stories, prayer requests, resources and opportunities needed to bring your friends and followers into the conversation about persecuted Christians.
