In this time of great polarization, fundamentalism and grave injustice, we are seeing a generation of young people rise who are longing for theologies that liberate and bring hope to the oppressed, the marginalized, and the broken-hearted. Such theologies have developed among oppressed Christians worldwide, including among Palestinians. These theologies have inspired strength, hope, and a continual commitment to Jesus’ teachings of a just peace and nonviolent resistance to all forms of oppression.
This gathering provides an opportunity for young people from around the world, ages 18-35, to engage first-hand with local young Palestinians and hear their stories, learn more about the current realities on the ground, explore and discuss together liberation theology, nonviolence, engaging Christian Zionism, and to work together to take action.
If you are a young adult with a passion for human rights and learning how to live as Christ, come join us this June. Come and hear the stories of the people, explore your faith, and learn together what it means to rise up and take action. The deadline to apply is May 1st. Register today!
You are also invited to become an adult sponsor. As a sponsor of this conference you could support in two ways: first, offering financial assistance, and second, identifying young adult participants. The hope is to award scholarship funds to participants from the Global South as well as to local Palestinian participants who have limited economic means. If you would like to sponsor a young adult or if you know a young person who would like to apply from your organization, please encourage them to fill out an application!
