Andrew Brunson

EPC Teaching Elder Andrew Brunson was arrested in the Turkish coastal city of Izmir (biblical Smyrna) on October 7, 2016, and has been imprisoned ever since. He and his family have lived in Turkey since 1993. At the time of his arrest, he was serving as pastor of Izmir Resurrection Church in Izmir.

He faces charges of espionage, acquiring secret political and military information, attempting to destroy constitutional order and overthrowing the Turkish parliament, and membership in an armed terrorist organization.

YOU ARE WORTHY OF MY ALL

“You Are Worthy of My All” was written by Andrew Brunson in fall 2017 while in prison in Turkey. The recording is sung by a Turkish believer and friend of the Brunsons.

It is the desire of EPC leadership that every EPC church incorporate Andrew’s modern hymn into their worship services.
