Christians are the world’s most persecuted people.
From verbal harassment to death, persecution for professing faith
in Christ is as old as Christianity itself.
Where We Work
Take Heart partners with local leaders in some of the most persecuted areas. Currently we work in Egypt, Iraq, and Syria.
Persecution in Egypt varies.
+ Those with Muslim backgrounds face exile and often deadly danger from immediate and extended families.
+ Egyptian Christians are often unable to fellowship together largely in part to restrictions on building or securing places to worship.
+ Women, in particular, face discrimination in their workplaces.
+ Christians living in Upper Egypt are especially vulnerable to persecution due to extreme poverty plaguing the area.
"I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace.
In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
