– Could this year be the year that you get trained and equipped to speak up for Israel?

– Could you reserve the last two weeks of May to devote yourself to an unparalleled Israel experience?

– Could you be available to serve as a Bridges for Peace Representative in your community?

If so, then Bridges for Peace Institute of Israel Studies (IIS) is for you!

The Institute of Israel Studies is a program for Bible-believing Christians from all around the world who desire to:

  • Join the Bridges for Peace global network
  • Work as part of an international team committed to expressing the love of God to the Jewish people
  • Educate Christians on the Hebraic roots of their faith
  • Pray for the nation and people of Israel with wisdom and power
  • Advocate for the Land that God says is His prized possession
  • Participate in the fulfillment of Bible prophecy

Through the program, representatives meet and interact with Bridges for Peace leadership, learn from Israeli experts concerning current issues, and interact with Israelis in a variety of venues.

Would you pray about this and seriously consider God’s calling on your life regarding Israel? Then speak with our leadership team to let us help you in the process of applying for the Institute and the BFP-USA Representative Program.

Is it time for YOU to take action for Zion? If yes, then let’s get going…
