About us

Release International is an inter-denominational Christian ministry working through local church partners in more than 25 countries, helping persecuted Christians prayerfully, pastorally and practicallyOur ministry is based on Hebrews 13 v 3: ‘Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison,  and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.’

We were founded in 1968, inspired by the testimony and ministry of Pastor Richard Wurmbrand, who was imprisoned for his faith for 14 years in communist Romania. Be inspired by reading his book Tortured for Christ, available from our shop or you can receive a free copy by becoming a regular supporter of Release.

'I tremble because of the sufferings of those persecuted in different lands. I tremble thinking about the eternal destiny of their torturers. I tremble for Western Christians who don’t help their persecuted brethren. In the depth of my heart, I would like to keep the beauty of my own vineyard and not be involved in such a huge fight. I would like so much to be somewhere in quietness and rest. But it is not possible… The quietness and rest for which I long would be an escape from reality and dangerous for my soul… The West sleeps and must be awakened to see the plight of the captive nations.'

Richard Wurmbrand, Tortured for Christ.
