Christians Across Africa Under Attack

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

What countries do you think of as the worst persecutors of Christians?

North Korea? Pakistan? Egypt? Iraq?

It’s hard to imagine, but in just the past year, several places in Africa have become the deadliest killing grounds for Christians.

Nigeria is now considered to be the “deadliest place to be called a Christian” on the planet.

In 2014 alone, more than 1,500 people, the vast majority being Christians, have been killed by the Islamic terrorist group Boko Haram. Church bombings, military assaults on predominately Christian villages, and mass kidnappings are now part of a daily struggle for survival for Christians living in Nigeria’s north.

Please, stay in prayer for Christians living in Nigeria’s north.
