Meeting the needs of millions of persecuted Christians so they can be a light for the gospel in their communities and advance the Great Commission.

Our vision

It started with a question: In the next 50 years, what kind of organization is needed to address the exponentially growing persecution of Christians? As we prayed about the next steps for our organization, we came up with the answer and our driving focus:

Create the world's most extensive, covert network serving persecuted Christians.

To do this, we need a large vision to mobilize dedicated Christians to support our persecuted family in new and life-changing ways that will expand God’s Kingdom for the next 50 years.

That’s why, as of Jan. 1, our name is now Global Christian Relief.

Why we exist

Over the past 50 years, we’ve done everything we can to support Christians who live in places where they experience intense persecution or discrimination. In those five decades, the oppression of Christians has risen to historic levels.

Today, hundreds of millions of Christians worldwide are attacked, arrested and falsely imprisoned for following Jesus. And you can help!

Our mission is to mobilize U.S. Christians to stand with them so they can be a light for the gospel in their communities. To help them live out the Great Commission.

How we work

Global Christian Relief serves persecuted Christians around the world.

As part of our mission, we take action in the following ways:

• Launching visionary projects—working alongside partners in the field for long-term impact
• Providing greater access to the most dangerous countries for Christians—with stories that take you there and grow your faith
• Expanding our networks to serve the Church where the need is greatest
• Unveiling unparalleled impact reporting that shows you the power of your prayer and support for your persecuted family

We work directly with partners on the ground who understand the needs of their communities. In every region, the needs might be different, but we seek to strengthen the Church where it's needed most—from North Korea and Iran to Afghanistan and Sudan, and everywhere God’s people are threatened, vulnerable or alone.

Where we work

We work wherever the need is greatest for Christians facing persecution because they follow Jesus. Through partners on the ground, our work can be found in some of the most dangerous countries to follow Jesus today,

including Pakistan, North Korea, Iraq, Syria, India, Indonesia, Colombia and many more.
