Religious Freedom and Reconciliation Initiative
The collapse of the Soviet Union more than 20 years ago brought great hope for freedom, including religious freedom, to this part of the world.
During the last several years, however, there has been a sharp increase in religious freedom violations. This very day, Christians and pastors—especially evangelical Christians—in Eurasia are facing growing threats to their freedom. Particularly in Central Asia, raids are taking place, pastors are being detained, Christian literature is being confiscated, and harsh laws are being imposed to restrict the freedoms of churches, particularly evangelical Christian churches. And with the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine, religious reconciliation efforts are desperately needed to foster peace and forgiveness between Russian and Ukrainian Christians divided by war.
Because we cannot stay silent in the face of these alarming trends, Mission Eurasia launched our Religious Freedom and Reconciliation Initiative to raise awareness about religious freedom violations in the former Soviet Union, to promote reconciliation, and to encourage prayer and support from the global Christian community.
Give to support religious freedom and reconciliation efforts in Eurasia and help us minister to the families of pastors and other Christians who are suffering for their faith.
*If we receive enough funds for this ministry project, or the project cannot be completed as planned, your gift will be redirected where needed most.
