IMPRISONED FOR CHRIST – VIRTUAL EVENT
Don’t miss this special opportunity to meet three Christian workers who were imprisoned for their faith!
Voice of the Martyrs, with help from LifeWay, is hosting a FREE virtual event on Saturday 6 March at 11:30am that will feature three inspiring speakers: Petr Jasek, Andrew Brunson and Dan Baumann.
While sharing God’s love in three different restricted nations dominated by Islam, each was arrested, interrogated and imprisoned. While all three struggled to find God’s purpose in their suffering, they ultimately recognised His faithfulness and love amid desperate circumstances.
In addition to their firsthand testimonies, you will enjoy an engaging panel discussion moderated by VOM Radio host Todd Nettleton as well as inspiring worship music from Dove Award–winning artist Natalie Grant.
Join us for this special event, and learn how you can get involved in helping our persecuted Christian brothers and sisters around the world.
As leader of VOM’s work in Africa, Petr Jasek was arrested by Sudan’s Islamist regime in 2015 while in the country to help persecuted Christians. Convicted as a spy, sentenced to life in prison and forced to share a cell with ISIS terrorists, Petr shared the Gospel with fellow prisoners during his 445 days in prison. Today, Petr serves as VOM’s Global Ambassador. His book, Imprisoned with ISIS, was published in 2020.
In October 2016, following a failed coup attempt against the Turkish government, authorities arrested Pastor Andrew Brunson in a purge that included the arrests of tens of thousands of military personnel, civil servants, educators, journalists and dissidents. Brunson, who pastored a small church in Izmir, became a pawn in a geopolitical chess game and spent two years in a Turkish prison. His book, God’s Hostage, was published in late 2019.
While travelling in Iran in 1997, Dan Baumann was falsely accused of espionage and detained in a high-security prison for nine weeks. After his release, Dan published an account of his ordeal in his book Cell 58, which shares the details of his miraculous release. Dan has worked at Youth With A Mission training centres in Colorado and Hawaii, and he frequently visits surrounding churches and universities in his work discipling young people.
