Serving the Persecuted

In many parts of the world, the followers of Jesus Christ live under persecution. The World Evangelical Alliance estimates that over 200 million Christians in more than 60 countries are denied their basic human rights because of their faith in Jesus Christ.

In partnership with other evangelical groups around the world, The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada's Religious Liberty Commission monitors the persecution of Christians, and alerts churches in Canada to prayer and advocacy needs. The EFC also seeks to raise the profile of religious persecution as a serious human rights violation with government and in the media.

United Nations Human Rights Council: The former EFC Director of Law and Public Policy Janet Epp Buckingham was privileged to present the World Evangelical Alliance UN Report 2005 at the UN Human Rights Commission in Geneva, and to attend the sixty-second and final Commission in 2006, where plans were finalized for a new Human Rights Council, which has replaced the Commission.
