Nazareth Evangelical College launches new theological conference

The BMS partner will ask important questions about the role of faith and theology in conflicts such as Israel-Palestine


A Savior is bornPeace may not be the first word that springs to mind when you think of Israel-Palestine. But today, in the midst of great conflict, a BMS World Mission partner in Nazareth is exploring what it looks like to be followers of the prince of peace – to be peacemakers – in times of unrest.

This coming April, the Nazareth Evangelical College is hosting a conference in the hometown of Jesus that will ask important questions about the role of faith and theology in conflicts such as that in Israel-Palestine. David Coffey, a BMS Global Ambassador, and Catalyst Live contributor Yohanna Kathanacho will be two of the speakers at this exciting new event.

“This is such an important conference,” said BMS General Director David Kerrigan.

“Christians can have a really positive impact on situations of political conflict, but we need to engage with the issues and be willing to learn from people on the ground. Being involved with this peace conference is one way of doing that.
“I really hope that BMS supporters will get behind this and attend the event.”
The conference will take place in Nazareth on 16 to 18 April 2015 and costs just £75, not including accommodation. For more details and a summary of the two-day programme click here.
“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.” Matthew 5: 9
Please pray for the situation in Israel-Palestine and for the Nazareth Evangelical College’s first conference – that Christians will find ways to be peacemakers in situations where peace seems very far away.
