Watch Press Conference on Persecution of Christians

May 13, 2014 Comment(s) Tags: , ,

OCN Executive Director Rev. Dr. Christopher Metropulos was invited to attend a press conference in Washington, DC, sponsored by two members of Congress, calling attention to the persecution of Christians in the Middle East, especially in Egypt, Syria, and Iraq.

Christian leaders from around the nation were present at the event, and several spoke to the gathering about the importance of addressing the terrible plight of Christians internationally. They also issued and signed a pledge to stand by these Christians and seek help for them.
