Purpose

ICC acts as a bridge between believers in free countries and believers in persecuted countries. This bridge carries encouragement, prayers, and aid in while news, requests, and love flow back over the bridge. The bridge also allows for the voices and concerns of the persecuted to be heard by the Church so that we might move the rest of the world to action on their behalf. Persecuted believers are God's gift to the Church in the West: they are like a mirror held up to our face. We look and say, "If that is a Christian then what am I?" This is part of why we serve the amazing group of believers around the world. Now more than ever, it is critical for the Church to be aware of the suffering, how to pray and how to help.


Mission statement

International Christian Concern (ICC) exists to relieve the suffering of the worldwide persecuted church and help it grow in strength and breadth. ICC accomplishes its mission through effective assistance, advocacy and awareness with integrity toward God and our donors.


Statement of faith

We are non-denominational and will assist all persecuted Christians who affirm the Apostles' Creed and believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God. This includes Protestants, Catholics, and Orthodox believers. The persecuted church cannot easily afford to be isolated based on denominational differences, and we feel a Biblical mandate to support all who confess Christ as Lord, understanding that there are significant theological differences between denominations and traditions. We acknowledge and accept the differences, but feel we must pull together to support and defend the weakest members of our family...the persecuted.

History

Since 1995, we have been assisting the worldwide persecuted Christian church by providing Assistance, Awareness, and Advocacy, and striving to be faithful to our Lord and to our donors. ICC was founded by Steve Snyder who began serving the persecuted Church in 1986 when he assumed the presidency of CSI-USA (Christian Solidarity Intl. USA Division). In 1995, ICC was birthed out of CSI and became a completely independent organization. Steve passed away suddenly in 2002 and was succeeded by Jeff King who was called to ICC by a dream. Jeff came to ICC after spending years in the banking industry and from serving 11 years with Campus Crusade for Christ.
