DR. CARL A. MOELLER is a dedicated advocate for the millions of Christians around the globe who are denied religious freedom and basic human rights. He travels to the world's most oppressive regimes, meeting with and encouraging Christians who live in the shadows of discrimination, imprisonment and even death for their faith. Moeller is a passionate spokesperson focused on raising awareness of the plight of those who are persecuted for their religious beliefs. His mission is to mobilize Christians to pray, encourage and advocate on behalf of suffering believers.Moeller began his ministry in 1983 when he joined Campus Crusade for Christ International. There he gained a global Christian perspective working with church leaders in eastern European communist countries. He says of this time: "I discovered the Church was vitally alive despite decades of persecution and harassment from government officials. That really stoked my passion for suffering believers."Moeller's naturally engaging communication style and heart for people led him to pursue opportunities spanning both ministry and organizational advocacy.These work experiences prepared Moeller to turn his passion for suffering believers to full-time ministry in 2003 when he was appointed President and CEO of Open Doors USA. Founded over 55 years ago by Brother Andrew, Open Doors now supports and strengthens persecuted Christians in 60 countries.As a leading authority on religious freedom and advocacy, Moeller is an articulate communicator.
