The St. Charles Institute is a Christian not-for-profit human rights agency dedicated to providing information and analysis on anti-Christian discrimination and violence.  We believe that religious freedom is a fundamental human right that should be enjoyed by everyone, and as such, we advocate for those who are now denied this fundamental human right.  

The St. Charles Institute began in 2013 with the hopes and aspirations to join God's work to bring hope and justice to Christians facing persecution.  Through The Institute, we seek:

  • Help to end the relative silence and apathy of the Church in the West concerning the persecution of Christians.

  • Raise prayer and spiritual support for Christians in the region.

  • Develop a network of Christian activists and concerned others who will work together to advocate for religious freedom for all, and will seek to end the religiously-motivated discrimination and violence.

  • Raise practical support to help meet some of the most pressing needs of Christian communities in need.

  • Strengthen the existing Church in these regions and encourage churches and church leaders.
