Our ministry relieves the suffering of the global persecuted Church and helps it grow in strength and breadth.

Building the church

Since ICC’s creation in 1995, we have developed an effective and efficient system of bringing relief to persecuted Christians in need. We team up with trustworthy partners on the ground to develop and implement both immediate aid and long-term assistance projects. We then monitor our projects to ensure faithfulness to biblical principles and wise stewardship of funds.
