Compass Direct News was a Christian news agency founded in 1996 that reported exclusively on persecution of Christians around the world. It had a network of news bureaus and correspondents that produced news reports, features and analyses of situations and trends facing Christians living in what are believed to be the world’s most oppressive areas.

Compass Direct News aimed to raise awareness of Christian persecution and encourage churches to organize prayer support for those who are suffering. It provided information for governments and advocacy groups to perform subsequent action for the persecuted.

The news service was published through email releases and on the Compass Direct News website.

Compass Direct was discontinued in June 2012, and was succeeded in July 2012 by World Watch Monitor.
