Christian non-profit ministry Voice of the Martyrs (VOM), in partnership with marketing agency Web Direct Advertising, has started a blog focused on the plight of Christians across the globe who are being persecuted for their faith.
Called the Persecution Blog (http://www.persecutionblog.com), the web log provides daily updated news and information about persecuted Christians in countries such as Egypt, Pakistan, and China. It also attempts to focus the attention of Christians in the US and abroad on the peril fellow believers face daily in many third-world countries.
“We hope the Persecution Blog will become the central online point for the expression of ideas about the persecuted church,? said Todd Nettleton, Director of News Services for Voice of the Martyrs. He added, ?As so many are thinking, writing, reading and learning about the persecuted church, we believe the natural outflow will be to pray more often and more fervently, and to seek ways of blessing our persecuted brothers and sisters around the world.”
Regarding the use of web log technology to help communicate Voice of the Martyr?s message, Web Direct CEO Steve Cleary said, “As an owner of a marketing firm, I understand the need to always be on the cutting edge of technology maximizing its potential for the dissemination of the client’s message. Blogging is quickly becoming one of the most cost effective ways of doing this.”
Web Direct contracted business blog consulting firm Radiant Marketing Group (http://www.radiantmarketinggroup.com) to design and build the blog, oversee blog marketing efforts and provide training to the blogger. The firm chose as its blogger for the project Stacy Harp, a committed Christian and veteran blogger with deep roots in the Christian blogging community.
Information is updated on the blog several times each day. Though still in its early stages, the site is becoming a popular clearinghouse of information on the persecuted church. To date there is nothing else like it on the Internet.
Voice of the Martyrs (http://www.persecution.com) is a non-profit, interdenominational organization with a vision for aiding Christians around the world who are being persecuted for their faith in Christ, fulfilling the Great Commission, and educating the world about the ongoing persecution of Christians.
VOM is headquartered in Bartlesville, Oklahoma with thirty affiliated international offices.
