Open Doors LIVE is a new, monthly podcast from Open Doors Australia, hosted by Mike Gore and James Kozina. 

This podcast brings the persecuted church to life, with each episode containing life changing stories, accurate updates on events and trends in persecution, and biblically based discussion.



Episode 6 Overview

In this in-betweener-sode, get an inside look at the life and ministry of your host, James Kozina.

James oversees Church Engagement across Australia and New Zealand. From growing up as a Christian in a remote part of Australia, to meeting with believers who risk their lives daily for Jesus; James’ story helps unpack ‘the wrestle’ as we compare both the extreme suffering and the absolute freedom found within the global body of Christ.



Join the movement of Christians giving up one day’s wage for the persecuted church.
