2017 Israel Intensive

Join Samuel Whitefield, Joel Richardson, Stuart Greaves, and others in Israel for the 2017 Israel Intensive.

Join us in Israel for the third annual OneKing Israel Intensive. The Intensive consists of the OneKing: Jerusalem conference and a unique journey through the land where you experience both ancient and modern Israel. Come encounter what God is doing in Israel and the Middle East. Gain first hand understanding of the role of the global church in God’s plan for Israel and the Middle East. Look at the challenge of radical Islam through the lens of the gospel. Encounter the Bible in a fresh way as you walk in the locations where Jesus walked. Form new relationships with leaders and attendees from the nations.

The controversy around Jerusalem is no longer a regional conflict. It’s a global conflict and it will require this generation to answer serious questions about Israel, Islam, and the nations. OneKing is a unique journey right into the heart of the controversy. Come with us and experience God’s plan for Jerusalem and the nations. Go beyond political narratives and the lens of the media to discover God in the Middle East.

Israel Intensive Details

Intensive Leaders and Special Guests

June 29-July 9th, 2017

This year we are also adding a special track for pastors and ministries leaders – click here for more information. The OneKing Israel Intensive is an immersive experience for young adults and ministry into the very heart of the Middle East. It is a unique chance to experience what God is doing and develop a gospel centered approach to Israel, Islam, and the nations.

Now as never before, the attention of the earth is again focused on the region where God began His story of redemption. Israel and the Middle East are now front page news throughout the nations of the earth. The church in the nations is recognizing that God is not finished with Israel. Radical Islam is contending for the very heart of the Middle East. Day and Night Prayer is filling the earth. What is the role of the global church in this hour of history?

The controversy around Jerusalem will require this generation to answer some serious questions: What is a biblical understanding of Israel and the Middle East? Why does this regional conflict have global implications? How does the conflict relate to the global church? What role does the rise of Islam play in the region? Why do political solutions always fall short? How do we address social justice in a biblical framework? Why is God raising up Night and Day Prayer in the earth in our generation? What does the Bible say about the future of Jerusalem? Join us to explore the answer to these questions and many others.

The Experience

The Israel Intensive includes the OneKing: Jerusalem conference as well as a unique experience touring through the land of Israel. Ancient Israel and the modern Israel will come alive together as we travel through Israel with leaders from OneKing and learn from local believers as you hear the untold story of God’s work in Israel among His people. Come ready to study the Bible like never before. Come prepared to build new relationships. Come ready for an unforgettable adventure.

You will experience the land and interact with OneKing leaders together. You have a chance to ask the hard questions and the Bible will come alive as you see the power of the gospel in the midst of modern challenges. As you encounter the modern challenges of the land, you will also experience the ancient land of the Bible. Experienced tour guides will make the history of the Bible and the land come alive as they lead the tour into the world of the Bible and the story of the Bible will suddenly become very real as you experience the story in the very places where it took place.

As you experience modern Israel, you will also encounter the land of the Bible including locations such as:

The Accommodations

Attendees will stay at the Christ Church guesthouse in the Old City in Jerusalem. Christ Church is host to the oldest Protestant church in the Middle East and provides a secluded retreat just inside the walls of the Old City. Though it is only a few minutes walk from the Temple Mount, Christ Church provides a quiet atmosphere for reflection and connecting with leaders and others who are a part of the intensive.
Inside the gates of Christ Church, guests discover a tranquil courtyard amongst shady trees, flowers and historic buildings. Christian staff members from around the world serve and minister to guests touring the Christ Church complex, and those staying in the Guest House. Facing the Guest House is the 19th century Christ Church – the first Protestant Church in the Middle East – where visitors can pray, or just bask in the unique atmosphere of one of the jewels of Jerusalem’s undiscovered places. The church is home to a number of weekly worship services. Next to the Church is the Minister’s House, which served as the first British Consulate in Israel.

Within the Guest House, visitors can enjoy refreshments or full meals in the Coffee Shop, and living accommodations are comfortable with rooms furnished in the Ottoman style.
