More than 88,000 signatories are demanding the release of a Tennessee-based pastor currently unable to leave India. Pastor Bryan Nerren, a leader of International House of Prayer Ministries, has been unable to leave India since his arrest on October 5.

Nerren was held in a detention facility for six days without being allowed to contact his family and without visitation — even by officials from the U.S. consulate in his region. He was released on bail but the presiding judge revoked his passport, making it impossible for Nerren to leave the country.

The American Center for Law and Justice has been Nerren’s legal defense and is working with the State Department to secure Nerren’s release while he stays with ministry partners in India.
