In anticipation of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the modern state of Israel, National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) will mark this major milestone at Proclaim 18, the NRB International Christian Media Convention in Nashville, Tennessee.
The four-day Convention will feature a special Israel Session on March 1, 2018, featuring, among others, Bible teachers and Christian ministry leaders David Jeremiah and Kay Arthur; award-winning singer-songwriter Michael W. Smith; Dr. Susanna Kokkonen, director of Christian Friends of Yad Vashem; and Holocaust survivor Luna Fuss-Kaufman.
Emceeing the session will be David Prager, host of The Dennis Prager Show.
“The Israel Session at Proclaim 18 will be a time of celebration as 2018 marks the 70th anniversary of the modern state of Israel,” said Dr. Jerry A. Johnson, President & CEO of NRB. “We want to celebrate and honor God’s chosen people, and we invite the local community, as well as Christians and Jews near and far, to join us for this momentous occasion.”
NRB has long affirmed its support for and solidarity with Israel, recognizing the providential hand of God in Israel’s history and His commitment to fulfilling His promises in His Holy Word, the Bible. The association’s leadership has also noted the special relationship of the U.S. with Israel, as nations committed to freedom and democratic governance that respects the rule of law and the rights of minorities.
During NRB’s annual Convention last year, the association’s Board of Directors unanimously approved a resolution expressing support for Israel. The Board called on NRB members to “pray for the peace of Jerusalem” and for the U.S. “to stand steadfastly by Israel, even as others malign, abandon, or attack her.” They also urged Christians to “reject and guard against the dangerous Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) Movement.”
“More than ever, Christians must pray for the peace of Jerusalem,” said Johnson.
