The Gathering

Prayer for the Persecuted Church

Join us Sunday, November 3 in Staunton, VA to pray for persecuted Christians!


Around the world, millions of Christians face intense and in many places rapidly increasing persecution for choosing to follow Jesus. Persecution has been part of Christianity since the beginning, but it has become more widespread in recent decades, as it is estimated that more Christians died for their faith in the 20th century than all prior centuries combined.

How should we respond to such tragedy? As believers, one of the clearest and most immediate responses should always be prayer.

This November, join Ruth Graham Ministries together with other local ministry partners and area churches as we gather to pray for the worldwide persecuted church. Persecution is on the rise, but our God is powerful and He is with us.

Event Details:

  • What: The Gathering 2019

  • When: Sunday, November 3 from 3:00 – 5:00 pm

  • Where: Host Church – Cornerstone Church of Augusta, 1156 Tinkling Spring Road, Staunton, VA 22401

This powerful event will include ANM staff and missionaries such as ANM Far East Regional Director Dan Reichard, Meseret Workelul from Ethiopia, and Dr. Santosh Thomas who leads our ministry partner in Kashmir, India – all of whom have either experienced persecution for their faith, or personally know others who have.

Let’s gather to pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ who are experiencing the heavy cost for choosing to remain faithful to Jesus.
