Hope of Israel Winter 2018: Israel

To bring the Gospel to the various people groups of Israel—Romans 1:16.

You will be challenged to draw closer to God as you trust Him to show you how to share your faith with the various people groups that inhabit the Land of Israel, including Jewish people (the whole spectrum from secular to traditional to ultra-orthodox), Arabic-speaking peoples (both Muslims and nominal Christians), and others (among them visitors to Israel from all over the world). Emphasis is on team building and a variety of outreach activities as a group, working in conjunction with our OM Israel short and long-term staff.
