New international religious freedom office to open in Middle East

COLUMBUS, Ohio (compiled by Jennifer Davis Rash) — The Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, in consultation with the International Mission Board, will develop “strategic relationships” to mobilize churches for defending religious liberty and advocating social justice across the world.

ERLC will do this through an international religious freedom office in the Middle East, which will:

•Provide training resources for churches and organizations on issues related to justice and religious liberty.

•Create original content to raise awareness and champion advocacy through research and storytelling.

•Collaborate with Baptist Global Response for advocacy and awareness of human needs opportunities.

•Develop strategic relationships with like-minded organizations to advance advocacy efforts.
