Iraq: A Forgotten Hope

Nations is a documentary film series hosted by author and pastor Mark Foreman. In the pilot episode, Mark travels to Iraq to see how the church is surviving amidst the persecution and genocide caused by ISIS.


“I see hope in a generation that has seen so much trauma that they no longer are limited by traditions. They can break the barriers of tradition because they’ve been taken away from their worlds.”



Nations journalists travel to the ends of the earth to tell stories of God’s presence in places of pain and persecution. These original features are published online and in our annual print magazine, Nations Journal.


Our documentary film series and video dispatches explore the church’s response to crisis in places with complex narratives.


Our global contributor network brings stories of hope to life. The Nations family is made up of writers, designers, photographers, filmmakers, and readers dedicated to bearing witness to the Gospel’s subversive hope.
