Your Church Can Partner with Us to

Make A Difference

When you partner with Open Doors, you’ll be given a glimpse of how God is at work around the world and what discipleship looks like in the most dangerous places. You can come alongside those who are most persecuted for their faith in Jesus, giving them what they need to endure. 

Across the world, more than 365 million Christians suffer persecution and discrimination, simply because of their decision to follow Jesus. Through your partnership you’ll be helping the body of Christ be the hands and feet of Jesus in some of the most dangerous places to do so.

A message from our CEO

Thank You

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your commitment to your own gospel work and for considering how a partnership with our persecuted family through Open Doors might extend that around the world.

My prayer is that the stories of the persecuted church shed light on our own journey of faith, and that we may truly understand the power and truth of Jesus’ words:

“Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” – Matthew 5:10

We are deeply grateful.
