By Beth Ross | 20 December 2018

Open Doors LIVE is a 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 19 Overview

Mike Gore, Jocelyn Goto and Hillsong Worship’s JD host a masterclass at Hillsong Worship and Creative Conference. Hear about what it means to worship in the ‘thin places’ and the way the persecuted church both wrestle with and embrace the cost of following Jesus.

In this episode:

  • Why we shouldn’t measure our proximity to God with his provision of safety.
  • Is there revival in the Middle East?
  • How Muslims have a greater expectation that Jesus will answer their prayers than we do.
