Morning Star News is the only independent news service focusing exclusively on persecution of Christians. Founded by former Compass Direct News editor Jeff M. Sellers on Sept. 30, 2012, the news service’s mission is to provide complete, reliable, even-handed news in order to empower those in the free world to help persecuted Christians, and to encourage persecuted Christians by informing them that they are not alone in their suffering.
Funded only by donations, Morning Star News is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation whose news is distributed free to media, government representatives, human rights agencies, churches and individuals.
As a news service independent of any one entity it seeks to serve all agencies in their efforts to help persecuted Christians. It relies on a network of professionally trained, veteran journalists around the world.
