Servant Leadership

The Ripkens have interviewed over 600 believers in persecution from more than 72 countries.  Sitting at their feet, they learned how to thrive amidst suffering, not merely survive.

Believers in persecution remind us that persecution in the Bible is normal. Suffering for Jesus is as common as the “sun coming up in the east.”  At this conference, the Ripkens will lead the church in the West to rediscover its biblical heritage of both crucifixion and resurrection.  The goal is to challenge believers to boldly follow Jesus, sharing their faith with others – no matter the cost.

At this conference, we want to engage you with the truth of Jesus Christ, challenging you to follow Him no matter the cost. We pray that we can set aside fears so we can proclaim the Good News and draw masses of hopelessly lost people to Him.

  • How does faith survive, let alone flourish in the places of the world that are overcome with the darkness of sin, despair and hopelessness?
  • How can we help to expand the Kingdom of god by sharing truths and practices learned from believers in persecution?
  • Knowing that many in America do not believe that Jesus is the Son of God or that He is the only way to eternal life, do you consider it a great honor to walk across the street to share Christ with your neighbor?
