This Wednesday (15th July) it’ll be 60 years since Brother Andrew stepped out in faith and went to a communist youth festival in Poland to share the good news of Jesus. It’s there he first me Christians who were persecuted for their faith. And it’s there, on that trip in 1955, that Open Doors was born.
It’s been a long road since then, and while there have been some major highlights, Open Doors is now working in more countries than ever before, highlighting the growing nature of persecution against Christians.
But in 60 years, we’ve had some major successes. Check out some of our major highlights below in our awesome timeline…
Say ‘Yes’ to God like Brother Andrew and journey with your persecuted family. Commit to pray and speak up for those who share our faith but not our freedom. Sign up and we’ll give you some help by sending you some awesome free resources (like our ‘Ten Steps’ guide) that will help you learn from some incredible, inspiring persecuted Christians.
We support people who are beaten, tortured,
imprisoned, falsely accused, and hated simply for following Jesus.
