NBS hosts Evangelical pastors
2009/09/07


Both pastors and leaders from the Evangelical Churches and para-churches in Israel have been holding a gathering on the first Saturday of each month, during which time they have breakfast, share, and pray with each other. The last gathering of this group, on the 5th of September, was hosted by NBS, which is a member of the Evangelical Convention in Israel.

More than 50 pastors and leaders attended. They enjoyed a breakfast that included traditional Arabic foods like houmus,"ful", falafel and lebaneh. Afterwards they heard a presentation from the General Director of NBS, Botrus Mansour, about NBS's ministry.
He urged the pastors to pray more for the school and to encourage their flock to be involved in NBS by sending their children to enroll in the school or for university graduates to apply for jobs at NBS.

Later on, the pastors heard a lecture from Jonathan Kuttab, a lawyer  from Jerusalem, about denominational recognition in Middle Eastern countries as opposed to the individualistic approach in the west. The lecture was followed by questions and comments from the audience.  In summation, Mr. Monther Naum, Chairman of the Evangelical Convention in Israel, gave a few announcements and the meeting was concluded with a word of prayer from Judge Jameel Nasser, who serves as an elder in the church in Abu Sinan.
