A Profound Legacy

Brother Andrew, Open Doors founder, saw closed borders as an invitation and trusted God to open doors to the most impossible places on earth. His mission was to strengthen believers facing the immense pressures of persecution.

“I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.”
– Revelation 3:8

A Note of Thanks from Our CEO

To our supporters,

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you sincerely for your prayers and support for the ministry of Open Doors in New Zealand and around the world.

The number of countries scoring high to extreme levels of persecution has almost doubled over the past 30 years. And yet, supporters like you continue to rise to meet the ever-increasing need. You remind suffering believers they are not alone, and the body of Christ stands with them.

Thank you for your continued generosity, love, and support for our persecuted family. We are deeply grateful.

In Christ,
Adam Holland
