Crisis in the Middle East: A Video Newscast

Do you know what’s going in the Middle East right now?

Ancient Christian communities are being driven from their homes, churches desecrated and destroyed, hundreds of men, women, and children killed — some even publically executed in brutal fashion for their faith.

In this videocast, we feature two stories: one from Gaza, where the local Greek Orthodox Church is providing a safe haven to Palestinian Muslims in danger from Israeli rockets; and a second story from Iraq, where Islamist extremists pose an existential threat to Christianity’s survival in and around Mosul.

Please be advised: in the story from Iraq, there are very graphic images of the violence being inflicted upon our fellow Christians. But there is truly a crisis in the Middle East right now, and the truth deserves to be told.

Greetings in the Lord!

With the support of people like you, the Orthodox Christian Network is making a measurable difference in reaching the younger generations. Here are just a few facts about our ministry’s success:

The Orthodox Christian Network is the largest Orthodox Internet presence in the world—by far! Our programs are shared with 500,000 OCN Facebook fans every day. 74% of them are 35 or younger. 38% are 24 or younger.

Help us take advantage of this tremendous success and expand our ministry over the summer. With one week left, we’ve almost reached our Summer Fundraising Goal! But we need your support TODAY to reach $15,000

Donate to our 10 Cent A Day Campaign and your gift will go toward reaching 10 new people around the world. 100% of your donation goes to mission, with 0% to overhead.

On behalf of all of the Orthodox Christian Network, we thank you for 20 years of support for our beloved ministry.

Rev. Dr. Christopher Metropulos, Orthodox Christian Network Executive Director
