Goshen Today

Our Story

There is no way we can talk about Goshen today without talking about the organisation from which it evolved: Open Doors Singapore (ODS)

Open Doors was a legacy left behind by Brother Andrew, a Dutch Christian missionary who earned himself the name “God’s Smuggler” smuggling Bibles into communist countries during the Cold War years. He famously prayed, “Lord, make seeing eyes blind” before approaching border security with his carload of Bibles and Christian literature for believers behind the Iron Curtain. At police checkpoints, he even had his religious literature – banned in many countries he was visiting – lying in plain sight as a testament to God’s protection. Brother Andrew showed us that faith often materialises in deeds of courage.

In 1982, ODS was founded upon this same spirit of adventure, courage and reckless faith embodied by Brother Andrew.

Goshen is a non-denominational Christian ministry. Our ministry partner is Voice of the Martyrs. We are also a member of International Christian Association (ICA) since January 2021. We work with and through local church partners helping persecuted Christians prayerfully, pastorally and practically. Our ministry is based on Hebrews 13 v 3: ‘Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.’

Be inspired by the testimony and ministry of Pastor Richard Wurmbrand, who was imprisoned for his faith for 14 years in communist Romania. Be inspired by reading his book Tortured for Christ, available in our shop or you can receive a free copy by becoming a regular supporter of Goshen.


We are a non-denominal Christian ministry engaging your persecuted brethren by praying with them and responding to their practical needs.
Our mission partner: Voice of the Martyrs.

We equip the Body of Christ for Kingdom works by learning lessons of true Christian discipleship with them.
