OUR VISION

Our mission at The Friends of Israel is focused—we are a worldwide Christian ministry communicating biblical truth about Israel and the Messiah, while fostering solidarity with the Jewish people.


Over 75 years ago, the Friends of Israel Gospel Ministry (FOI) was founded as a compassionate effort to meet the spiritual and physical needs of Jewish people whose lives were displaced and tragically affected by the Holocaust.

Since its inception in 1938, the ministry continues to stand against every form of anti-Semitism and support the right of the Jewish people to live in their ancient homeland, Israel.

Additionally, FOI actively invests in the edification of Christians by teaching Scripture that exemplifies why loving the Jewish people and supporting Israel is integral to the Christian faith. Today, FOI’s presence spans the globe with ministry workers serving Jewish people worldwide.

2021 ANNUAL REPORT


With the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the war has come to our doorstep. It has directly impacted our workers in Eastern Europe in ways the likes of which we have not seen since World War II. The United States has declined tremendously as a world power, and moral authority is under attack.  

I am witnessing our staff carrying the gospel throughout the world and regularly hearing reports of people coming to faith in Christ. The turmoil of our times reminds us of the urgency to make Christ known everywhere. 

Last year, I saw many magnificent examples of the Lord's good hand upon the ministry of The Friends of Israel. I hope you find our 2021 Annual Report encouraging and will see how God has guided this work, as I do.

The Promise


Now the Lord had said to Abram:
"Get out of your country, From your family And from your father’s house, To a land that I will show you. I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”

–Genesis 12:1–3
