Bible and Discipleship Training
Help believers in some of the most dangerous parts of the world remain firm in their faith by providing Bibles, discipleship training and other vital resources that will equip them to remain strong through persecution.
Lifesaving Shelter and Aid
Every month believers are forced to leave their homes and communities due to Christian persecution. Christians continue to be a target of Islamic militants in the Middle East and Southeast Asia. In Nigeria, the Islamic terrorist group Boko Haram, along with Fulani militants, both threaten the safety and security of believers. And in places like India and Nepal, Hindu extremists seek to wipe out the Christian community through oppression and violence. Your gift will provide lifesaving shelter and aid to at-risk Christians to help them stay in their country and survive these times of crisis.
Bibles and Storybooks for Children
Invest in the faith of a new generation by giving an illustrated Bible to a child growing up in one of the world's most persecuted places. Children's Bibles are distributed through local churches, Sunday schools, religious education classes and other efforts conducted by Open Doors partners on the ground.
Provide interventional care when crises occur, including trauma counseling, medical care, safe shelter, famine support, legal advocacy and vocational support for crisis victims.
Maximum Impact Fund
When you give to “Where Needed Most,” your generous gift will help equip and empower persecuted Christians by providing critical relief and strengthening support like emergency food and shelter, safe houses for at-risk believers, rebuilding of homes and churches, Bible and Christian literature, discipleship training, literacy education, microloans and much more. All of these crucial areas of support help empower the local church to remain a vital presence—and a light for the gospel—in some of the most hostile regions toward Christians in the world.
Persecution - Preparedness Training
Persecution - Preparedness Training is an education and discipleship curriculum developed by Open Doors. It's used worldwide in local churches, daily devotionals and multi-day training to teach biblical perspective on persecution for seasoned and new believers alike. Give the gift of this discipleship material to help a believer stand strong through the storm.
Safe Houses and Vital Care
Believers around the world face threats to their personal safety when they become followers of Jesus. Safe houses provide temporary protection in secret locations and enable believers to strengthen their faith, earn an income, connect with a community and minister to others through their hardship.
Trauma Counseling and Hope
Persecuted believers endure traumatic events every day, including violent attacks, threats on their safety and freedom, being disowned by their families and community isolation. Provide a believer with the biblical counseling they need to process their trauma and rebuild healthy lives for them and their families.
Vocational Training for Christian Women
Women are Christianity's most persecuted group, especially when their families reject them for becoming a follower of Jesus. Empower women to earn an income and build livelihoods for themselves and their families by giving the gift of vocational training. Beneficiaries of Open Doors vocational training learn skills such as sewing, agriculture and small business management.
Women & Children Advancement
Women and children are especially vulnerable to persecution when they face discrimination and lack family support. Strengthen the Church by empowering the most vulnerable persecuted believers with women’s vocational training, education, discipleship materials, trauma counseling, leadership development and literacy training.
