STANDING STRONG 2020

You’re invited to meet those who dare to follow Jesus no matter the cost.

Standing Strong is a celebration of all that God is doing in and through His church around the world, thanks to your prayers and support. This is a unique opportunity to hear speakers from Asia and the Middle East about how Christians in those countries are courageously following Jesus, despite the dark and dangerous reality of persecution they face.

At Standing Strong, join with hundreds of others in worship and prayer and find out how you can support your persecuted family. Learn more about the dangers, risks and joys that being faithful to Jesus brings and the work Open Doors is doing to support those whose faith costs them the most.
