Stand up as one to violent persecution in Africa

Arise Africa: a campaign to stand with violently persecuted Christians in Sub Saharan Africa

Right now, there are more Christians in Africa than anywhere else in the world – and the church is
youthful and growing. But the extreme, persistent aggression towards our brothers and sisters in parts of
the region puts the future of the church at risk. It’s time for Christians in Africa to join in prayer for our persecuted family on the continent so that they persevere, and remain resilient, resourceful and influential.
