ORLANDO, FL – A revealing, shocking story of Christian persecution is being released in churches on May 23, 2017, when the movie, “Faithkeepers,” will debut. Faithkeepers documents the history and widespread persecution of Christians across the Middle East. This incredible, 50-minute film is packed with stories from children and their parents. Each year, thousands of Christians are killed because of their faith. The movie brings to life these stories and the shocking persecution and deaths of Christians worldwide.

“This movie is a must-see for everyone to learn first-hand about the religious and Christian genocide that is happening now in the Middle East,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. “We cannot turn a blind eye to the children and people who are being slaughtered solely because of their faith. As we sit in our comfortable homes, with well-fed children who are safe, we cannot ignore our brothers and sisters who are lacking everything we take for granted. We truly are the keepers of our sisters and brothers,” said Staver.
