Welcome to the Quad Cities Night to Honor Israel!
10 20 - NTHI Moline IL compressed (002)

Night to Honor Israel is a non-conversionary tribute to the nation of Israel and the Jewish people of the world. Its purpose is to promote respect and understanding between Christians and Jews to emphasize that the beliefs we hold in common are far greater than the differences we have allowed to separate us.

This is a night where we can come together in unity to celebrate our Jewish roots and express our gratitude in praise and worship, music and dance and through our giving.

Author, renowned speaker, TV personality and religious writer for the largest Arabic newspaper in the Holy Land (Al-Quds), Pastor Steven Khoury shepherds the largest Arab Evangelical church in Israel and the Palestinian territories. 

His transformation from a boy involved in the first intifada with Israel turned believer is a message for all to hear. 

Preaching the message of Christianity to Arabs in the region has often put him in the most precarious situations, making his church a target of retaliation over the years. Even such, Pastor Steven Khoury has made it his mission to be on the forefront in reconciliation between Jews and Arabs. 

His educational background is in ministry with a Bachelors of Science in Pastoral Ministry and Basic Masters in Theology. He is an affiliate with the BBFI, a member of the National Christian Foundation, and a part of the Premiere Speakers Member.
