Last year, 215 million Christians experienced high or extreme levels of persecution in the 50 countries where it’s most difficult to be a Christ follower. Christians are facing beatings, abductions, rape, torture, forced marriages and death.
Those of us living in safety cannot stand by and let these atrocities continue. That’s why Franklin Graham and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association are hosting the first-ever World Summit in Defense of Persecuted Christians in Washington, D.C., this May.
The Summit will bring together more than 600 victims, advocates and leaders from 130 countries to help raise global awareness and do something about this crisis.
You can take a stand by praying for the persecuted church during the Summit, May 10-13, 2017.
FRANKLIN GRAHAM FB POST It is an honor to have Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen joining us tomorrow for the World Summit in Defense of Persecuted Christians in Washington, D.C.. I am very thankful that we have a Vice President and an administration in Washington that cares about this important global issue.
