At great personal risk, the members of this fellowship hold clandestine Bible studies in order to grow as a community with their Lord Jesus Christ. Twice a week, on Mondays and Thursdays, the members of this group put their lives on the line to meet in fellowship. The level of persecution is so intense that on July 2, one of the members of their fellowship was lit on fire by her husband when he discovered she was attending the Christian fellowship. Unfortunately, many of the members face similar circumstances.
When the fellowship meets on Mondays, they do a Bible study. They pick a portion of scripture, read through it as a group and discuss what they have learned and how it can be applied to their lives. Discussions are led by Pastor Imam Hussein. Pastor Hussein also meets with the children of the fellowship and teaches them stories and lessons from the Bible. After fellowship concludes, the group shares a meal, as practiced by the First Church in Acts.
On Thursdays, Pastor Hussein preaches to the fellowship and teaches from the Word of God. A fellowship meal is shared after this meeting as well.
Singing is not allowed at the fellowship because if they were to be discovered, many, if not all, of the members would face punishments as severe as death. When the fellowship first started to meet, they met in the homes of the members. This became a serious security risk for its members, so they moved to a secret rented space.
The fellowship is comprised of some of the most persecuted Christians on the planet. ICC has begun to support this fledgling fellowship by purchasing each member a Bible in the Somali language and chairs that they would otherwise have to rent on a monthly basis.
