What is Secret Church?

Years ago, David Platt taught and ministered among underground Asian house churches where believers were forced to gather in secret, sometimes at risk of their own lives due to hostility from the government, from the surrounding community, and even from their own families. Secret Church is an opportunity for us to gather and intensely study the Bible and pray like and for our persecuted brothers and sisters around the world.

Encouraged by our persecuted brothers’ and sisters’ examples, we will meet for 6 hours for intense study of God’s Word and passionate prayer for the persecuted.

What to Expect

STUDY. Take a 6 hour deep dive into Scripture to discern wisdom and truth.

PRAY. We will have an exclusive opportunity from inside Iran to learn about how the Lord is awakening many people and growing his Church despite incredible challenges. Together we’ll join with what God is doing in Iran through our prayers. And together we’ll give to work not just in Iran, but in other countries where Christians are being persecuted, like Yemen and Syria and North Korea.

ACTS. We will be challenged to live on mission—in our neighborhoods and to the nations.

This Year’s Theme: Ruth

“Ruth has all the elements of a love story. Tragedy. Loss. Despair. Hope. Triumph. Loyalty. Romance. But it’s more than just a love story. It’s a epic story within a story. It’s a story not just about Ruth, but about all of us and a world that’s in need of redemption. And in the end, I can’t wait to show you how your story is a part of this story.”
