Christ at the Checkpoint 4: The Gospel in the Face of Religious Extremism “450 Participants”
Last March, 450 delegates from twenty-three nationalities, gathered in Bethlehem for Christ at the Checkpoint. Their aim, and that of the entire conference, was to understand the dangers of religious extremism, whether Muslim, Jewish, Christian, or any other, and to formulate a Christ-like response. The Conference was a huge success.
New Staff and Volunteers
The Lord has blessed us with more faithful, intelligent, and committed staff members and volunteers to join our growing family at BBC.
As for the coming year, we are ready! We pray it will be even more fruitful than the previous years. May the Lord use BBC to bless our community, our beloved Palestine and the world at large.
