From there they moved to Release International www.releaseinternational.org, Andy as Chief Executive and Emma as programme manager for Release Women in addition to being associate lecturer at All Nations Christian College in the UK, where she trains people for cross-cultural mission.

He’s due to take up a new position leading Viva an Oxford based charity supporting children at risk this summer.

Lessons of the Persecuted Church

Release International serves the persecuted church by providing practical help and compassion for Christians who are persecuted, encouraging evangelism and being a voice to campaign on behalf of the oppressed. They showed us how the church in the West needs to learn the lessons of the persecuted church through looking at the book of Acts.
