Rector Recommends on:
the Persecuted Church

Open Doors USA


For over 60 years, Open Doors has worked in the world's most oppressive countries, empowering Christians who are persecuted for their beliefs. Open Doors equips persecuted Christians in more than 60 countries through programs like Bible & Gospel Development, Women & Children Advancement and Christian Community Restoration.




Barnabas Fund


The main ministry of Barnabas Aid is to send financial support to projects which help Christians where they suffer discrimination, oppression and persecution as a consequence of their faith. The projects aim to strengthen Christian individuals, churches and their communities by providing material and spiritual support in response to needs identified by local Christian leaders.

Voice of the Martyrs

The Voice of the Martyrs is a nonprofit, interdenominational Christian missions organization dedicated to serving our persecuted family worldwide through practical and spiritual assistance and leading other members of the body of Christ into fellowship with them. VOM was founded in 1967 by Pastor Richard Wurmbrand, who was imprisoned for 14 years in Communist Romania for his faith in Christ; his wife, Sabina, was imprisoned for three years. In 1965 they were ransomed out of Romania, and soon thereafter they established the global network of missions of which VOM is a part. The Wurmbrands based these missions on Hebrews 13:3, which instructs us to “Remember the prisoners as if chained with them—those who are mistreated—since you yourselves are in the body also.”




Jerusalem Merit



In late 2016, Canon Andrew White resigned from Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East (FRRME). Despite his ongoing health challenges due to his Multiple Sclerosis (MS), he feels called to continue his relief and reconciliation work and ministry in Jordan, Israel, Palestine, Pakistan and hopefully other countries beyond the Middle East. Therefore, Canon White started the Canon Andrew White Reconciliation Ministries and Jerusalem Merit.

Major aspects of Canon White’s ministry and work, include running the School and the Clinic for Iraqi refugees in Jordan, his relief and reconciliation work in Israel and Palestine. All of these are totally reliant on your direct support to Canon Andrew White.
