Evangelical leaders to travel to Israel

Notable evangelical leaders are heading to Israel to take part in a “Christians in Solidarity with Israel” tour:

The Aug. 17-22 trip will include Anne Graham Lotz, daughter of Billy Graham and president of AnGeL Ministries; Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council; and Richard Land, president of Southern Evangelical Seminary in Matthews, N.C.

“My prayer is that God’s people in this country and around the world would intercede for heaven’s involvement in Israel, that God would defend and protect her from her enemies,” said Lotz.

The NRB is a large umbrella group for Christian communicators involved mostly in radio and television. Its annual conference attracts thousands, and it bills itself as the “world’s largest annual gathering of Christian media professionals.”

The trip will emphasize American Christians’ steadfast support for Israel, said Perkins of the Family Research Council.
