The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem is a global ministry representing churches, denominations, and millions of Christians worldwide who share a love and concern for Israel and who seek to repair the historic breach between the Church and the Jewish people. We recognize the biblical significance of the modern-day restoration of Jerusalem/Israel and the faithfulness of God to keep His ancient covenant promises to the Jewish people. To fulfill our mission in our daily tasks and responsibilities, we are always looking for committed believers with excellent skills who are interested in serving with us in Israel. If you have a passion and drive to be a part of the ICEJ Ministry and keen to make a difference, then you might be the person who we are looking for!

In general, the following applies for International volunteers who are accepted to serve at the ICEJ. (For Israelis, the terms of service will be negotiated):

  • Housing in a two bedroom apartment with a staff member of the same gender. This enables everyone to have their private bedroom.
  • Israeli medical insurance.
  • Israeli cellphone or sim card for those who prefer their personal device.
  • A monthly cash stipend of NIS 2,200 plus NIS 600 lunch assistance. That is about US$800 at the current exchange rate. Staff members pay their apartment utilities (electricity, gas and water), as well as a condominium fee if applicable.

The ICEJ is looking for volunteers for several positions and continues to recruit despite the ongoing war crisis in Israel. We encourage interested candidates to submit their application online for consideration.
