Johnnie Moore, like many American Christians, didn t fully appreciate the extent of what was going on until he witnessed a graduation of seminary students in India. Unlike graduation ceremonies in America where feel-good speeches made by visiting celebrities are featured this one featured a remarkable oath. It wasn t an oath to excel. It was an oath to be willing to die, if necessary, for the cause of Christ. This was no empty promise. A placard, next to the speaker's platform, listed former graduates who had died for the Christian faith. At this graduation Johnnie knew he was witnessing a raw first-century Christianity his comfortable American Christianity had shielded him from. He and his team crisscrossed the world, recorders in hand, to gather reports from dozens of survivors of persecution to see what it means to live for the Jesus Christians around the globe are dying for. It was only then, after hearing their stories and being broken by what he saw, that he could dare to take the martyr's oath.
Join Johnnie Moore on this compelling journey to the heart of the Christian faith.
Rev. Johnnie Moore, 33, is an author, speaker, media personality, communications executive, and humanitarian who has been called one of the "world's most influential young leaders" and "a modern-day Dietrich Bonhoeffer."
His humanitarian work and advocacy prompted a prominent vicar to name him "one of the world's foremost spokespersons for Christians in the Middle East," and the Iraqi Chaldean diocese of San Diego honored him as a "savior of thousands." In April 2017, he was awarded the prestigious "Medal of Valor" by the Simon Wiesenthal Center, a leading Jewish human rights organization, at their annual tribute dinner.
Moore appears regularly in the national media and has written for many national news publications including CNN, the Religion News Service, the Washington Post, and Fox News. He is the author of four books.
