OUR INITIATIVES

SERVING THE NEEDS OF THE PERSECUTED CHURCH

TODAY, in the next 24 hours . . . 13 Christians will die, 12 Christians will be unjustly arrested, detained or imprisoned, and five believers will be kidnapped

Just because they follow Jesus.

According to the World Watch List published by Open Doors in 2021, more than 340 million Christians this year are facing high levels of persecution for their faith. That is more people than the entire population of the United States! Persecution against Christians has risen for 15 consecutive years.

Christians are being slaughtered all across Africa, they are being taken to concentration camps in North Korea and thousands of churches have been brutally shut down under a new wave of persecution in China. Of course, most Americans have never heard about any of this because the mainstream media won’t cover it.

Please help the Jesus Alliance’s Every Church Initiative combat these startling numbers. We facilitate the adoption of persecuted churches around the world by churches here in the United States. For a total Kingdom investment of $250, individual donors and/or churches make it possible for the persecuted church to receive a pocket LightStream media device that we pre-load with hundreds of hours of curated gospel content in the persecuted church’s heart language. This is a huge blessing because the LightStreams arrive with extensive Christian content where government restrictions often censor out this type of content. The Jesus Alliance-provided LightStreams often include devotionals, discipleship training, all of the Alpha Courses in their heart language, and the entire CRU’s film library, including the Jesus Film in over 1800 languages, in addition to two years of both Old and New Testament seminary courses by Third Millennium Seminary. Each pocket LightStream acts as a cellular hot spot, able to copy content on church member’s phones without ever going on the internet. They even operate without power with an optional solar charging pad.

The adoption invariably empowers a Holy Spirit bond between the persecuted pastor and the Western pastor and their congregations, as the persecuted church is strengthened, prayed for, and loved in the name of Jesus Christ.

This year, In 2021, persecution is at its highest rate in modern history

Donate here: The Every Church Initiative

We never ask the persecuted church to pay for anything, it comes as a loving gift from The Jesus Alliance and the Western local church. All we ever ask of the persecuted church is to pray for revival for the Western Church.

Jesus Alliance connects the local church to a persecuted church abroad
Local church sponsors a Lightstream device that securely distributes gospel content in the persecuted church’s native language
Jesus Alliance facilitates ongoing communication between the churches (including translation services as necessary)
Local church meets the needs of the persecuted to grow and plant new churches abroad while the persecuted pray for the American church

Our goal is to send 700 Lightstream units to persecuted churches.
