Christians and other religious minorities in 83 countries experience religious restrictions; discrimination in employment, education, and housing; arrests and detentions, and in some cases, physical assaults and killings.
When you make a tax-deductible donation to 21Wilberforce, you are helping us train hundreds of emergent leaders who will advocate for the rights of Christians and other religious minorities. Our mission is to unite people around the world in the cause of religious freedom-and training is the key!
Your donation can help change lives and prevent so much suffering. The world desperately needs courageous leaders who will promote justice for all. 21Wilberforce’s unique training can help produce those leaders.
21Wilberforce train pastors, professors, and local community leaders who actively experience persecution to advance and protect religious freedom in their culture and communities around the world.
By working with highly trusted, field-based partners, our training program effectively focuses on the empowerment of individuals in places of resistance to make a global impact as emergent leaders.
Through our uniquely designed curriculum, a series of online classes, and our Speak Freedom international training conference, 21Wilberforce is making a real and measurable impact.
Over the last six years we have trained 4,500 church and government leaders living in contexts of persecution in the Middle East, Asia-Pacific and the Horn of Africa.
Research reveals that 96% of attendees participating in our training had experienced some form of persecution for their faith, 29% believed they would be imprisoned for their faith, and 21% feared they might die for their faith.
We invite you to donate to our Faith in Action challenge campaign to fight religious persecution through training. Every dollar donated will be doubled.
In Appreciation for your gift, we will send you Speak Freedom: Developing Emergent Leaders in the Struggle for Justice. This inspiring book explores how leaders – from biblical times to today – have brought about positive change within cultures of oppression.
