A Prophetic Vision
The ICEJ was founded in Jerusalem in September 1980 by Christians from 32 countries who sought to give voice and practical expression to the biblical views of millions of Christians concerning Israel – views which our governments rarely communicate. Today, we are connecting the Church worldwide with what God is doing in Israel, through our branch offices and representatives in over 90 nations worldwide and supporters in more than 170 countries around the globe. Our vision is to expand this broad international network of committed pro-Israel Christians to encompass every nation on earth.
From our inception, the ICEJ has a proven track record of reaching out in genuine Christian love and concern to every community in Israel – whether Jewish, Arab, Christian, Muslim, Druze or Bedouin. At the same time, the ICEJ has a distinct calling to be a ministry of comfort to the Jewish people, particularly in response to the tragic legacy of Christian antisemitism.
Today, we are helping Jews to come home to Israel, caring for elderly Holocaust survivors, reaching out to youths-at-risk, assisting minorities, sponsoring education programs for deserving students, providing bomb shelters for embattled border communities, and so much more. Ultimately, the ICEJ aims to impact every sector of Israeli society with tangible acts testifying of Christian love and kindness towards this nation.
