Underground, the youth and student Ministry of Open Doors

Open Door’s exists to strengthen the church in the most hostile places.


Our vision is of a world in which every Christian who is persecuted is remembered and supported by other Christians. We seek to alleviate their suffering, and to help them extend God’s Kingdom in their part of the world. Open Doors work has extended to Asia, SE Asia, Africa, Latin America, Central Asia and the Middle East.
Standing with those who share our faith but not our freedom is part of being a Christian. As followers of Jesus we’re part of the same family. This family stretches across the time zones, across the nations, cuts through all restrictions and no go areas… It unites us like nothing else.
We’re asking you and anyone you know to get involved in taking action for our suffering brothers and sisters. For many Christians around the world – we’re the only family they’ve got – they’re counting on us to be family.
“If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honoured, every part rejoices with it.”
1 Corinthians 12:26

Underground
- raises awareness about the millions of Christians who are persecuted for their faith in Jesus Christ, and mobilizes young people to do something about it.
- challenges young people to choose to live for Jesus and be a generation that takes faith and church seriously.

Think globally. Act justly. Live passionately as the Body of Christ.
