OneKing Israel Intensive
JULY 3-JULY 12, 2019
Join us for an unforgettable journey into the heart of the controversy over Jerusalem, covenants, and the nations.
Come with us for the 5th OneKing Israel Intensive. Once you come it will forever change how you see Israel and the Middle East.
Day by day we watch as events happen that were unthinkable a few short years ago. Though it is hard to imagine the Bible predicts the subject of Israel will become even more controversial. Most people form their opinions on the Middle East largely based on social media and sound bytes. However nothing can replace a first hand experience with a Jesus-centered perspective.
An Unprecedented Moment
The Israel Intensive is a unique opportunity to simultaneously grow in depth in the Bible and in understanding of how the Bible applies to the modern Middle East.
We live in a generation unlike any other generation. A global controversy is gathering around Israel for the first time in history. The church is poised to reach every people group with the gospel. Night and Day prayer is filling the earth. All of this is happening on a global scale for the first time in human history leading to one question: how does the global church relate to all of this in a Jesus-centered way?
The controversy around Jerusalem will require this generation to answer some serious questions:
What is a biblical understanding of Israel and the Middle East?
Why does this regional conflict have global implications?
How does the conflict relate to the global church?
What role does the global church play in Israel and the Middle East?
Why do political solutions always fall short?
What is a biblical perspective of social justice?
What does the Bible say about the future of Israel?
What does the Bible say about the future of the rest of the Middle East?
Join us to explore the answer to these questions and many others. The OneKing Israel Intensive is an immersive experience for young adults into the very heart of the Middle East. Walk where Jesus walked. Encounter the untold story of what God is doing in the Middle East through interaction with the body of Jesus in Israel and the Middle East.
The Israel Intensive is a unique experience that includes:
- Encountering the “untold story” of what God is doing in Israel and the Middle East.
- A tour experience designed to make the Bible come to life.
- Conference sessions in Jerusalem to help you grasp the modern Middle East.
- Worship nights in Jerusalem in the oldest Protestant church in the Middle East.
Ancient Israel and the modern Israel will come alive together as we travel through Israel with leaders from OneKing and learn from local believers. You will hear the untold story of God’s work in Israel and the Middle East. Come ready to study the Bible like never before. Come prepared to build new relationships with attendees from around the world.
Come ready for an unforgettable adventure. You will never read the Bible the same way again, and you will never see the world the same way again.
You have a chance to ask the hard questions and the Bible will come alive as you experience the power of the gospel in the midst of modern challenges. OneKing leaders will make the history of the Bible and the land come alive as you experience the story of the Bible where it took place.

Christ Church Guesthouse
While in Jerusalem, attendees will stay at the Christ Church guesthouse in the Old City in Jerusalem. Christ Church is host to the oldest Protestant church in the Middle East and provides a secluded retreat just inside the walls of the Old City. Christ Church provides a quiet atmosphere for reflection and connecting with leaders and others who are a part of the intensive. It is also just a few minutes walk from the Western Wall and Temple Mount complex and right next to the modern Mamilla Mall which offers shopping and dining.
Inside the gates of Christ Church, guests discover a tranquil courtyard amongst shady trees, flowers and historic buildings. Christian staff members from around the world serve and minister to guests touring the Christ Church complex, and those staying in the Guest House. Facing the Guest House is the 19th century Christ Church – the first Protestant Church in the Middle East – where visitors can pray, or just bask in the unique atmosphere of one of the jewels of Jerusalem’s undiscovered places. The church is home to a number of weekly worship services. Next to the Church is the Minister’s House, which served as the first British Consulate in Israel. Within the Guest House, visitors can enjoy refreshments or full meals in the Coffee Shop, and living accommodations are comfortable with rooms furnished in the Ottoman style.
Ein Gev Resort
While in the Galilee attendees will stay at the Ein Gev Resort. The Ein Gev offers modest rooms located right on the Sea of Galilee. Ein Gev includes one of the only private beaches on the Sea of Galilee and attendees have the option of beach time at the private beach during the stay there.
