The Nazarene Fund Has New Leadership and a New Mandate

In 2015, I asked you to stand with me and with Mercury One to say "Never Again Is Now" and help rescue and provide aid to persecuted Christians and other religious minorities in the Middle East who had been displaced and terrorized by ISIS.

Today, I am pleased to report that in the last two years of operations, through your gifts of over $18 million to the Nazarene Fund, we've accomplished the following:

  • Provided emergency humanitarian aid to 35,000 people.
  • Resettled 5,462 people from 4 Christian and Yazidi refugee camps and placed them into safe and dignified homes.
  • Evacuated 7,602 Christian and Yazidi refugees and assisted in resettling them into new host countries. This included screening, processing and transporting.
  • Funded 117 projects ranging from rebuilding churches and schools to building medical clinics.
  • And in the last year, we have sponsored the rescue of 100 Christian and Yazidi women and children captured and enslaved by ISIS and have reunited them with their families.

All because of you. Thank you.

Today, I am pleased to inform you that the Nazarene Fund will chart a new course in a new era. The Nazarene Fund is truly going global and doubling down on its fight against persecution and slavery.

During our first two years, the Nazarene Fund was given the mandate to assist persecuted Christians and religious minorities in the Middle East --- specifically those affected by the ISIS war.

Today, ISIS has been defeated in Iraq and Syria and it is abandoning its territorial caliphate. And although the needs are evolving, we will not abandon the people in the Middle East we promised to help.

We will continue to sponsor rescues as long as there are captives. We will continue to help rebuild their churches, schools, homes and cultural institutions. And we will help restore their communities so they may continue to live their lives and practice their faith openly and freely without the fear of death and persecution.

But there are more people, in other parts of the world, who need help. These people have cried out for the Nazarene Fund's aid, but because of its mandate, it has been unable to help.

But that changes today.

Today, the Nazarene Fund has a new mission and a new mandate. The Nazarene Fund's new mission is:

To liberate the captive, to free the enslaved, and to rescue, rebuild and restore the lives of Christians and other persecuted religious and ethnic minorities wherever and whenever they are in need.

The Nazarene Fund will no longer be limited by geography and a single conflict.

Wherever there is persecution, we will bring comfort. Wherever there is slavery, we will bring liberation and wherever hope has died, we will resurrect it!

Today, I challenge you to once again help us do the impossible: join the Nazarene Fund and help us this time to raise $25 million to help Christians and other persecuted religious and ethnic minorities around the globe.

With this expansion, we are also announcing our friend Tim Ballard as the new CEO of the Nazarene Fund. With his leadership and your support, we will cut the heart out of darkness.

We WILL change the world.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."
