Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.
(Hebrews 12:1)
Recently, VOMK worshiped together in the park.
One thing we have learned from faithful witnesses is that
the Christ who descended to this earth expects us to behave in a way
that shows we know He is Lord in all places, even parks, homes, and offices.

China Persecution Update: Children and the elderly as trained spies

It is difficult for Christians outside of China to get an accurate, updated, comprehensive, simple-but-not-oversimplified summary of the rapidly escalating persecution confronting Chinese Christians. Our VOMK team assembled this timely brief for you to share with your friends, family, and church.


Under Xi Jinping’s dictatorship, China is carrying out various large-scale movements in an attempt to turn back the clock. The goal is to return China to the Mao Zedong era, a totalitarian era in which nothing—human rights, religion, or even thought—was free from the iron grip of the Communist party.

Today, the total number of Christians in China is large, exceeding even the total population of South Korea.

Pastor Tim's Prayer Points
  • We are so thankful for each and every volunteer that has served at VOM Korea. Volunteers have wrapped Bibles, stuffed balloons, folded newsletters, painted murals, printed books, recorded radio programs, and visited North Koreans in their homes. Our vision is that volunteers would do more and more of the ministry at VOM Korea. If you are interested in volunteering, please let us know at Please pray that the Lord would bring more volunteers to VOMK!

  • The persecution of Christians in Russia has been dramatically increasing over the past few years. In 2018 alone, 159 Christians were prosecuted in Russian courts. This prosecution was directed towards non-Russian Orthodox Christians, especially Baptists, Pentecostals and Protestants associated with foreign missionaries. In April of 2019, the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) added Russia to its list of “Countries of Particular Concern (CPC).” Please pray for VOM Korea as we launch a Russia division to address the needs of Christians across Russia.
