Central African Republic

Central African Republic: Rising Tensions.
Although there is a Christian majority, the civil war has led to Christians being regularly persecuted by Islamic militant groups. Churches and pastors have been targeted. Anyone who leaves Islam to follow Jesus is alienated from his or her community. The conflict has made new Christians vulnerable to violence.

Christians Displaced And Churches Attacked.
Christians in the Central African Republic struggle to worship in freedom because of the targeting, burning and ransacking of church buildings. Christian leaders who speak out against the violence have been threatened and sometimes killed.

The conflict has resulted in the displacement of thousands of Christians who are now forced to live in camps. They have lost their homes and livelihoods. In addition to the insecurity and violence that all Christians suffer, converts to Christianity are under particularly strong pressure to deny Jesus. 

Your help makes a difference for persecuted Christians in the Central African Republic by:

  • Persecution preparedness training.

  • Biblical training and discipleship.

  • Trauma care and social rehabilitation.

  • Economic empowerment.

Pray for Central African Republic

Pray for God to help Christians and Muslims rebuild friendship with one another. 

Pray for Islamic extremists to experience forgiveness that will lead them to Christ. 

Pray for the church to experience peace in the midst of chaos.
