About Us


The Israel Collective, an initiative of Christians United for Israel, was founded in 2014 by a team of young Christian leaders dedicated to building vibrant relationships between American Christians and the people of the Holy Land.

Our goal is to create a community that walks out the teachings of Jesus by asking how we can love Israelis and Palestinians in a way that makes God smile. As His followers, we are called to take a different path, to love others as He loved them, and to bring joy and life to our brothers and sisters in the Holy Land. This means cultivating living friendships based on love, truth and respect, and enabling our fellow Christians around the world to do the same.
