A gift to the VOM Global Ministry Fund supports the totality of VOM’s mission of serving Christians facing persecution in hostile and restricted nations and of being a voice for these brothers and sisters, calling Christians in the U.S. to a deeper commitment to Christ and into closer fellowship with our persecuted family.
Christians in restricted nations are often denied access to Bibles. VOM’s goal is to see that every believer living in a restricted or hostile nation has access to his or her own copy of the Bible. Gifts to the Bibles to Captive Nations Fund support the printing, purchasing or smuggling of Bibles to believers who might otherwise live their entire lives without ever reading the Word of God.
When pastors or evangelists are imprisoned or killed because of their Christian activities, their families are often left with little means of financial support. A gift to the Families of Martyrs Fund helps sustain these believers until they can find alternative means of support. This fund also provides immediate support to those who have suffered persecution themselves. These funds can assist with living expenses, children’s educational needs, relocation within their nation, vocational training and other needs.
A gift to the Front-Line Ministry Fund provides assistance to Christian workers in hostile and restricted nations who bravely preach the gospel of Jesus Christ despite great risks. The support provided is uniquely tailored to each worker’s needs. An evangelist or pastor may need horses able to carry loads at high altitudes, training at an underground leaders’ seminar, a bicycle for transportation to rural villages, a solar-powered video projector for ministry work or some other form of assistance. Gifts to this fund may also be used to provide direct support to the workers and their families.
