October 2-4, 2013, Pro-Israeli, Pro-Palestinian, Pro-Peace Leadership Summit in Washington DC
Whether or not Secretary Kerry's feverish efforts to restart the peace process succeed, leaders committed to making American Christendom a positive force for peace in the Holy Land will face a new set of opportunities and challenges. With this in mind, the Telos Group has decided to move and transform our weekend conference in Cincinnati into a pro-Israeli, pro-Palestinian, pro-peace leadership summit in Washington DC, Oct. 2-4.
At this summit, Telos will bring together influential evangelical and mainline Christian leaders, Israeli and Palestinian voices from the ground, policy experts, Congressional and White House representatives, and everyday activists for three days of high-level briefings on the current situation and facilitated discussions about positively transforming the Israel-Palestine conversation in congregations and communities across the United States. The focus will be on immediate, practical local activities that participants can undertake - individually and collectively - to support Israelis and Palestinians working for peace, and to increase American demand for a negotiated agreement that genuinely benefits both sides.
The Telos leadership summit will be based at the Courtyard Marriott Embassy Row near downtown, where a limited number of rooms has been reserved at a special rate. You can book a room by calling 1-888-236-2427. An online booking link will be posted soon.
Registration for the event itself is $300, which includes a special dinner with Members of Congress on Wednesday evening, and breakfast and lunch on Thursday and Friday. Scholarships and group rates are available if necessary.
