In this message series, we’re learning how Jesus spent his last month on earth and discovering how we too can live passionately, love completely, learn humbly, and leave boldly.

Int'l Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church

Int'l Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church

We’re joining Christians around the world on Sunday, Nov. 3, for the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church — a global prayer meeting for our Christian brothers and sisters who boldly witness for Christ at any cost.

Voice of the Martyr’s 2019 IDOP short film, Sang-chul: North Korea, provides a dramatic example of the challenges of following Christ inside the world’s most restricted nation. The film will inspire you and your family, group, class or church to pray for persecuted Christians in North Korea and around the world.

Filmed on the Korean peninsula, the film shares the true story of Pastor Han, who was assassinated by North Korean agents in China because of his effective gospel work among North Koreans. The story is told through the eyes of one of Pastor Han’s disciples, Sang-chul, a man who has followed in his mentor’s footsteps by continuing to share the gospel with North Koreans despite the danger. You and your church will be encouraged and better equipped to pray for Christians risking their lives for Christ.

Here at Minier Christian Church we’ll be providing prayer stations throughout the week for you, your family, and/or Life Group to go through at your convenience. Tables will line our hallways with stories for you to read or watch and people for you to pray for.
