The Save the Persecuted Christians (STPC) Coalition is an informal alliance that draws upon the experience, skills and energy of a growing number of remarkable individuals and non-profit organizations.  Its mission is to protect those around the world being subjected to torture, rape, slavery, banishment and murder simply because they believe in Jesus Christ.

Coalition members seek to build on their respective, commendable efforts aimed at mitigating such suffering in order to achieve a larger goal that has thus far proved elusive: a dramatic reduction of the global persecution of Christians, and ideally its complete cessation.

Our Plan:  To these ends, the STPC Coalition strives to replicate the success of those who aroused the nation on behalf of Soviet Jews four decades ago.  As with the earlier effort, we will begin by using signage outside of as many houses of worship as possible to build public awareness of the horrors followers of Christ experience in the Mideast, Africa, South and East Asia, the Americas and elsewhere.

Our Objectives:  Beyond calling attention to the oppression of Christians worldwide, the immediate task would be to disseminate actionable information about ways in which the American people can help those being persecuted.  Specifically, we will call attention to the relevant initiatives of members of the Save the Persecuted Christians Coalition and other, similarly engaged individuals and organizations.  The further objective would be to translate such awareness quickly into a national movement for the purpose of identifying and holding accountable those responsible for the persecution of followers of Christ.

The Launch:  We will roll out this effort on February 14th (please protect) with the display of banners (which the campaign will provide gratis) outside of hundreds, if not thousands, of churches and synagogues.  That day is both Ash Wednesday and Valentine’s Day, affording an opportunity to emphasize several themes simultaneously: the fact that Christians and their churches all over the world are being reduced to ashes; the importance of making this Lenten season a time of concerted praying for and working on behalf of persecuted Christians; and the opportunity to express our love for such Christians by taking practical steps to come to their assistance.

Support for the STPC Coalition: Tax-deductible contributions made to a Save the Persecuted Christians Donors Trust account will be applied to defraying the costs associated with the production and distribution of the STPC banners and “starter kits” and rollout-related, promotional efforts (e.g., social, earned and possibly paid media) and modest administrative expenses.  The intent is to apply any funding in excess of those needs to initiatives of Coalition members and others directly engaged in saving persecuted Christians.
