Hope for Middle East campaign:
A seven-year prayer and advocacy focus on the Christian presence in the Middle East

Since the birth of Christ, Christians have been integral to the Middle East. And they are vital for its future. We cannot stand by while Christians and others in the Middle East face unprecedented threat. We must give them hope.

Strengthen the Christian presence so that it will continue to make a recognized, positive contribution to Middle Eastern society.
