The Persecuted Church
The Mission of International Missions is to glorify God by making disciples across cultural boundaries by proclaiming and practicing the gospel of Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit.
On November 7, 2021, church communities all over the world will pause and pray for Christians who are persecuted and suffering for their faith.
We believe that with our freedom to pray and worship here in Canada; we have a responsibility to be a voice for our brothers and sisters who are being silenced.
This page is filled with resources that will direct you how to pray and act for the persecuted church. It is our sincere hope that you will help us share and tell the stories of the persecuted church as we come together during the month of November.
We have over #340million reasons to pray #forthesilenced.
