Join us to learn how God’s kingdom is advancing, even in the face of fierce opposition. Meet your persecuted Christian family, and let God use their stories to challenge you to a deeper, bolder walk with Him.
At this conference, you'll have the opportunity to hear from some of the most knowledgeable and passionate experts on the topic of the persecuted church. You'll learn about the challenges that believers face around the world and the courage and faith that sustains them through persecution.
As the leader of VOM’s ministry in Africa, Petr Jasek was arrested by Sudan’s Islamist regime in 2015 while in the
country to help persecuted Christians. Convicted as a spy, sentenced to life in prison and forced to share a cell
with ISIS terrorists, Petr witnessed to his fellow prisoners during his 445 days in prison. Today, Petr serves as
VOM’s Global Ambassador, travelling the world encouraging believers to stand with our persecuted brothers and
sisters in prayer and action. Petr tells the story of his imprisonment in his book, Imprisoned with ISIS.
