ICC Helps Pastors in India Prepare for Persecution
10/25/2021 Washington D.C. (International Christian Concern) – Since the rise of the BJP in India, Christians across the nation have experienced a surge in violence and harassment. In response, ICC has led Persecution Preparedness Trainings in India since 2016. ICC has trained pastors and Christian leaders from rural communities on how to avoid, mitigate, and manage instances of persecution.
We recently printed the training materials in five Indian languages: Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Odiya, and Hindi. These materials will be distributed within hotspots of Christian persecution to equip and train Christians who are most in need.
Participants in the program will be able to keep the booklets as a tool to respond to persecution in the future. The materials can also be reprinted to serve others in the wider region.
