“ by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body – Jews or Greeks, slaves or free – and all were made to drink of one Spirit.”
There are 200 million Christians suffering for their faith every day, from Cuba to North Africa to the Muslim Middle East, India and the rest of South Asia, North Korea, China, Vietnam, and Indonesia, to name a few. Yet they remain largely forgotten by the church in the West. Jesus commanded us to love each other, and the Christians overseas are just as much our brothers and sisters as the members of our own congregations. ICC offers the following resources for pastors and churches to learn about persecution so they can educate and move their congregations to pray for and care for their persecuted brothers and sisters.
International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted
In addition to the resources we make available for individuals, you can sign up to receive Free PDF Prayer Bulletins for the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted or for any day that you would like to have your church or small group remember to pray for the persecuted church. The bulletins include the stories of four different believers who are suffering for their faith and need your prayer. Learn More
Resource Kit. Our Resource Kit (CD) can equip pastors or anyone to teach/preach about the persecuted church. These kits are excellent for helping to raise awareness in your churches and communities. You might also consider ordering one during the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church for video presentations. The CD includes sample sermons, Sunday school lessons, PowerPoint presentations, three videos on persecution, reference articles, prayer guides, and more. We have done the research and spent the time gathering resources so you can concentrate on raising awareness for your persecuted brothers and sisters around the world.
Ordering. The kit is free for church staff that can receive it at a valid church address. Just call 1-800-422-5441 to order. If you do not work for a church, the cost is $5 for residents of the lower 48 states and $7 for Hawaii, Alaska, and Canada residents. Price already includes shipping.

Special Speaking Events
Occasionally, members of our staff or volunteers will travel to give presentations on Christian persecution and matters that affect the persecuted church around the world (Islam, specific incidents of violence, etc.). Sometimes we will even have members of the persecuted church speak to share what is happening in their own countries from their own first-hand experience. If you or your church might be interested in attending such presentations, keep your eyes on the space below and we’ll publish all open events.

ICC is constantly monitoring the state of Christian persecution in countries around the world and looking for ways that we can act as bridge between our supporters and the persecuted church. Beyond the projects you see above, we are working in many other areas to provide practical assistance to our brothers and sisters in Christ.
