ISIS beheadingsAn upcoming conference on the persecuted Church will be focusing on the Middle East.  

The Bridge Conference will take place outside Washington, D.C. July 7 to 9. 

The conference is done in partnership with human rights group International Christian Concern. 

"We want to be the bridge between the church and the persecuted," explains ICC President Jeff King.

While it seems like the Church is disappearing because of persecution by radical Islam, King says God is moving in the Middle East and the gospel "is on fire."  

Most people don't know about the growth of the Church, he says, "because all they hear about is the horror of ISIS."
