What the Film is About:
Locations, Filming, The Story
"The Persecuted" is a film about the underground church around the world. It is meant to inspire the church throughout the world and stir up a flame of passion for our Savior in our culture today.
The film sets out to document stories and testimonies of those who are being persecuted for the faith. But there is hope, as they pave the road of faith for the thousands who enter in.
The first segment of the film will be shot in the Philippines, China and various outskirts of Asian countries. With the assistance of a ministry in Asia we will access to underground churches throughout China. Later as the project progresses our visual missionary will be traveling to Africa, India and Europe.
Filming will begin May 1, 2012 of this year. The shoot will last until November before leaving for the Middle East and Africa. The Lord has imparted an amazing gift for art and media to our visual missionary. And we believe this call on his life, once produced, will impact the Church world-wide.
That the Father would use this film, and the mission he has called our visual missionary to, to affect the nations and stir up the heart of His Bride. We want to see revival in the church and learn from those who are laying down their lives to pave a way for those who do not know Jesus. We pray that by giving up pleasures for a moment, that we would see a glimpse of the eternal weight of glory in Messiah. We pray that you would catch the vision and join with us in prayer for our missionary, the ministries and believers that are willing to take the risk for the greater Body to see how they must live their faith as a testimony, that we would see the price that is paid and that He suffered for us. We pray for the support needed to complete this project and see the realization of Messiah's heart for His Bride.

The World Evangelical Alliance
estimates that over 200 Million Christians are persecuted each year. Thousands upon thousands are being martyred throughout the world. In India, Christians have taken to the jungles to escape death and in China, prisons are filled with those who proclaim Christ in secret places.
"Once I asked a friend living in China what the secret prayer meetings were like and to my astonishment he answered, "They pray that the Western Church, America, to have the fire of God.
My eyes were openedwide. Those who suffer pain and death pray for our faith, who face no such persecution.
Have we taken our freedoms for granted?
The Lord then moved upon my heart. What if I can bring these prayers, their testimonies, their stories and suffering to the church in America? What would happen if in the complacency of the church we were forced to look at faith as it is to them - life or death?
