Hebrews 13:7 tells us to “Remember those in chains as if chained with them—those who are persecuted— since you yourselves are in the body also.” The 2016 CSM Annual Leadership Conference “UNSHAKEN” honors those who stand for Jesus in places of extreme persecution and martyrdom. Joseph Bondarenko and Takoosh Hovsepian will help us to focus on these fellow believers, as they themselves have experienced such persecution and have overcome by the grace of God. Their testimonies through extreme obstacles will challenge and inspire you. Evangelist JOSEPH BONDARENKO was hunted by the USSR’s notorious secret police and imprisoned for his faith. His inspiring story will motivate listeners to risk everything to answer God’s call. Listeners will also come face to face with the God who sustained and upheld Joseph in miraculous ways, bringing him from a solitary confinement cell to freedom and the chance to bring the Gospel to countless people in the world’s stronghold of atheism. TAKOOSH HOVSEPIAN is from Iran. Her husband was martyred by the government at age 49. Through incredible trials, Takoosh has spent her years thereafter encouraging persecuted families and widows, as well as sharing her testimony in churches in the West to bring awareness and prayer support.
