URGENT: Underground Church Needs You

We are the
underground
church

We are a part of the Iranian awakening which is the fastest growing church in the world in one of the most unexpected and radicalized nations on earth. Our rapidly reproducing discipleship movement that owns no property or buildings, has no central leadership, and has been sweeping the Middle East for over 10 years. There are two documentaries about us called “Sheep Among Wolves Vol. 1 & 2”. Within these documentaries, you’ll hear from our leaders from the underground church and what they have gone through, as they are the sheep among the wolves. We believe the Lord is broadcasting this message on our behalf to prepare the Body of Christ for the coming days ahead.

We are being hunted in
many regions of the
Middle East

These are some of the most violent places on earth toward Christians. Religious zealots are all around us, seeking out “infidels” or “kuffar”—those who have turned to Jesus Christ. We persevere, nonetheless, even while threatened. On any given day, we could be taken from our friends and family and be imprisoned, beaten, raped or killed. We are surrounded by tens of millions of Muslims, devoted to Sharia Law, which mandates that those who turn away from Islam must be punished and killed. But God and all his glory is using what is evil and turning it for good.

Now the east
Meets the west

Featured in the powerful self-named documentary, “Sheep Among Wolves”, the underground church’s nameless and faceless leaders of the East are coming to the West with the message of how to make disciples under the deadliest of environments in a seemingly unlikely partnership. This church sparked the fastest growing movement of Christianity in the world. We believe global pastors, leaders, and missionaries are being called back to America to prepare the church for what is to come. The Lord is now repositioning His ekklesia to bring in the greater glory of His name, and as a result, the greatest harvest of souls in history.

GCM is leading the way

No one can reach Muslims more quickly and effectively than one who has been transformed by Christ, understands the culture, and knows the language. This is our unique ministry that is carried out entirely by nationals and former Muslims—some of whom were even terrorists. All are passionate about bringing the gospel to their fellow countrymen and do so at great personal cost and risk.

“God is moving powerfully in the Middle East. I am blown away by how God is using Global Catalytic Ministries to catalyze radical Jesus movements in the most dangerous countries of the world for Christians.”

/ Jennie Allen // Founder and Visionary of IF:Gathering

The underground church in Iran is "unstoppable" despite extreme persecution because the persecuted Christians are willing to suffer for the Gospel.

/ Francis Chan // author, speaker

IHOPKC has been powerful prayer partners and supporters of GCM and the underground church for many years. The most transformative part of the persecuted church is their thrust and dedication to prayer. It will be the thing that transforms the west.

The Taliban’s Rise to Power and the Underground Church’s Response

“There is no need to fear what the Taliban are doing. Yes, bad things may happen to us, but God will do something and glorify His name. If something bad happens to me, I will remember God and how He works miracles. In the Bible, He miraculously hid people in danger, and other times He allowed them to be beaten and killed. I trust God.”

FAQ

We belong to no denomination. We simply exist to transform Muslims worldwide through Jesus Christ, by means of evangelism, discipleship, church planting, leadership development, and compassion ministries.

We understand that you want to support our mission, but incurring administrative costs is not bad – instead, those costs are essential for mission advancement. Nonetheless, when you make a donation, you can signal intent for that donation to be spent in a particular way. However, the most useful donation is often an unrestricted donation. This will allow us to allocate your donation to the area of greatest need.

Prayer

Prayer is at the foundation for everything we do. We are deeply aware of the reality of what Jesus said in John 15:5: “Apart from Me, you can do nothing.” Our goal is to have 5000 committed partners praying for GCM on a daily basis.

To date, we have 29 weekly hours covered by prayer groups representing 1402 committed prayer partners. A committed prayer partner is someone engaging with our prayer community through leading a prayer meeting, attending a regular prayer meeting, and/or in prayer communication with us.
