Dr. Elizabeth Kendal

Wittenberg Seminary is pleased to announce that we have awarded Ms. Elizabeth Kendal an honorary Doctor of Ministry degree for her many years of advocacy for the persecuted church. Ms. Kendal has worked tirelessly to give persecuted believers a voice by researching and writing about religious liberty abuses that are often ignored by mainstream media. Her prayer bulletins are known worldwide for their detailed and reliable information, and their urgent call to the church of Jesus Christ to stand in the gap for their persecuted brothers and sisters.

Dr. Kendal is the Director of Advocacy at Christian Faith and Freedom (CFF). She writes all CFF’s reports to the Department of Defense Foreign & Trade (DFAT) – reports that are submitted before Human Rights and other high-level initiatives to ensure that the persecuted are not forgotten. She also attends the DFAT human rights NGO-forums on behalf of CFF, ensuring that the persecuted always have a voice.

Dr. Kendal worked 16 years as a full-time international religious liberty analyst and advocate, including 7 years as Principal Researcher and Writer for the World Evangelical Alliance Religious Liberty Commission (WEA). She resigned from WEA in April 2009 in order to work independently. She is an Adjunct Research Fellow at the Centre for the Study of Islam and Other Faiths at the Melbourne School of Theology.

Religious Liberty Monitoring exists to expose and analyze religious liberty issues that are strategically significant but are ignored by mainstream media. The Religious Liberty Prayer Bulletin (RLPB) exists to assist churches, small groups and individuals in prayer for the persecuted church around the world.
