Why Open Doors?

Our team at Open Doors is united in our love for Jesus Christ and His Commission. When working at Open Doors, you will get the chance to strengthen the faith of Christians all over the world. You will honour and uplift our suffering brothers and sisters by ensuring their stories are shared with Christians across Australia and New Zealand.

We asked our people their thoughts on working with Open Doors – here is what they had to say:

  • “Working for Open Doors means being challenged and encouraged in your faith every day! It’s a privilege to be in a job that helps strengthen the global body of Christ.”
  • “Seeing and hearing real stories of persecution has forced me to see my walk with Christ in a new way.”
  • “Exclusive experiences to travel and meet with persecuted believers, learning invaluable lessons along the way.”

Working with us also provides the opportunity to be a part of regular team devotions, access to Christian counselling and mentoring as well as coming together for bi-annual team days for fellowship, prayer, and worship.


Our Impact

In 2020, our work at Open Doors helped almost 8 million persecuted Christians around the world through Bibles, training and practical support.

As a growing and respected ministry, supporting persecuted Christians in more than 70 countries, we’re excited to bring on someone who shares our vision and passion to help Australian and New Zealand Christians care for the body of Christ.
