We serve Christians around the world whose brave faith in Jesus means they are, beaten, threatened, imprisoned, tortured, falsely accused, disowned and hated.

SHARE #14EVERYDAY

pattern

Every day, on average, 14 Christians in Nigeria are killed for their faith. It’s a shocking statistic, but these atrocities seldom get reported in the media. Even the church around the world often doesn’t know the extent of the persecution faced by our brothers and sisters in Nigeria. More Christians are killed for their faith in Nigeria than the rest of the world combined.

Raise awareness on social media

The church in Nigeria is asking for people to pay attention. And you can answer that call – with the #14EveryDay social media campaign. We’re asking you to share a photo or video of yourself holding the hashtag #14EveryDay – spreading awareness, raising prayer and standing up to violent persecution with our brothers and sisters. Why not get your friends, family, followers and church involved?

You can be inventive with how you share – we’ve suggested something you can say, or words you can put in a caption, but it’s up to you how you spread the sad news about our Nigerian family.

Thank you for standing up to violent persecution in Nigeria, and across sub-Saharan Africa, with our persecuted brothers and sisters.

What you can say on your post…

Use the words below in the description of your post (feel free to edit)…

Today, 14 Nigerians will be killed for being Christians.

If 14 of your family were killed in one day, it would likely be headline news. That’s what’s happening, on average, every day to our church family in Nigeria. These atrocities seldom get reported. We need to tell our churches, tell our friends, tell everyone.

Nigeria is an epicentre of escalating extremist violence. We need to stand up to violent persecution today with our brothers and sisters.

Use the hashtag #14EveryDay, tag @opendoorsyouthuk (Instagram) or @opendoorsyouth (Facebook and Twitter) and share your #14EveryDay image.
