Join Associate Director Marilyn Borst in the Holy Land this fall where we will be hosted by our partner, Bethlehem Bible College. BBC seeks to train and prepare Christian servant-leaders for the churches and society within an Arab context who model Christ centeredness, Godly humility, biblical wholeness, creative mercy and justice in their jobs and ministries as life-long learners. In addition to participating in a ministry initiative with the college, we will also have ample time to experience the sites of the biblical narrative and the places where Christ's life and ministry became incarnational including the Jerusalem area, Bethlehem, Nazareth and Galilee, as well as the Dead Sea. We will meet with other Palestinian Christian ministries to learn how they are seeking to be faithful under pressure and with peace a seemingly elusive ideal. Sharing leadership responsibilities with Marilyn will be The Outreach Foundation’s Executive Director, Rob Weingartner, who will serve as “teacher in residence’ with the team, helping us to hear, in new ways and in the historical context in which it was first shared, Christ’s call to compassionate ministry with the “least of these” and his missional invitation to “be my witness in Jerusalem, and in Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth.”
