A question we’re often asked is “How can our congregation become more deeply engaged with AFEDJ’s mission?”

We are thrilled to partner with The Episcopal Church’s Standing Commission on World Mission in this project funded, in part, by a Constable Fund grant of $60,000, to develop a video-based study program and additional resources.

Churches of any size or denomination will be able to use this program to raise awareness about the inspiring and powerful Christian witness demonstrated by a small band of Palestinian Christians in the region; the conditions that necessitate the humanitarian response of serving their neighbors; and the opportunities we have to join in ministry with our sisters and brothers in the region.

Other partners include Jerusalem Peacebuilders and the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem, as well as an awesome Advisory Team.

We will pilot the program with a small group of churches in early 2023 and are set to launch by late spring/early summer.
