Sudan: A graduation ceremony with a difference!

26 February 2018

For Christians in Sudan, there are not many occasions for celebrating. But this is a joyous occasion - the graduation ceremony for new pastors who will serve persecuted Christians.

Part of the work of Open Doors in Sudan is to assist local Bible colleges in training evangelists and missionaries. Recently in the Nuba mountains, 18 students graduated from one of these schools in a special ceremony. After three years of hard study these men were ready to be sent out to take the gospel to their communities. Thanks to your support, Open Doors was able to provide each graduate with a gift: a bicycle to aid them in their ministry as they travel long distances to serve the people around them.

Sudan is number 4 on the Open Doors World Watch List of countries where Christians face the most extreme persecution. Find out more about the situation facing Christians in Sudan or check out our World Watch List resources page for ways in which you and your church can explore the 50 countries where faith costs the most.


Through partnerships with the local church, Open Doors equips church leaders in Sudan for different aspects of ministry, supports community development, and provides practical assistance to persecuted Christians. This includes:

  • Literature distribution projects
  • Theological and discipleship training and trauma care training
  • Standing Strong Through the Storm training to help believers to stand firm through persecution
  • Community development projects.
