“In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)
Christ at the Checkpoint 5
Monday, May 28 – Friday, June 1, 2018
We are a community of evangelical Christians who believe that following Jesus with integrity means that our lives are formed by our love for God, the teaching of the Bible and a fearless life of discipleship in the complexities of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. We believe that one of the first hallmarks of discipleship is love for both our own community and for our enemies. We wish to find Jesus at the center of everything we do and to make his life our life. Which means finding courageous love for Palestinian Arabs and Israeli Jews alike.
Since 2010, under the leadership of Bethlehem Bible College and led by Palestinian Christians, we have sponsored an international conference every other year exploring the obstacles to peace in our world and the opportunities for peace-making that spring from our Christian faith. We pray that we are faithful to Jesus and regularly confess our shortcomings when we fail to exhibit Jesus’ highest call to love. We also call upon evangelical Christians everywhere to join us in the hope that we can build a better world where goodness and truth reign free and where the love and fairness of God are common.
We invite you to join us. Our next gathering will be in May, 2018, and we hope you will join Christians from throughout the world from a wide diversity of backgrounds and viewpoints. We believe that the conversations that begin in these gatherings will result in the hope we need in our world.

Churches for Middle East Peace Advocacy Summit 2018
And Still We Rise: Transforming U.S. Policy Toward a Just Middle East
June 17 – 19, 2018 | Washington, D.C
And Still We Rise seeks to elevate the voices, contributions, and leadership of women peacemakers. While women make up the majority of students in Palestinian colleges and many Middle Eastern universities, and despite the growing recognition of the need for programs that empower and equip women, women’s voices are still too often underrepresented. This year’s Summit invites men and women to hear from speakers who are all women.
Over three days we will discuss current realities; learn about grassroots peace efforts happening in the Middle East; receive tools to effectively advocate on behalf of peace and security for Israelis, Palestinians, and all people in the Middle East; and meet with US Government representatives to advocate for peace in the Middle East.
