OUR PURPOSE

The existence of Israel as a sovereign Jewish state has become a polarizing issue in both the mainstream and Christian communities, and there are many questions to be answered. Our goal is to provide answers to some of these questions through the real life journey of Todd Morehead as he travels through the Holy Land, hearing the stories of both Israelis and Palestinians who have been directly impacted by the conflict. 
We believe in the inherent dignity of all people living in the Holy Land. This includes Arabs and other minorities who live in Israel and the Palestinian Territories (West Bank and Gaza).  These people matter to God, and therefore they matter to us.  In getting to know them we have come to discover that many—despite the challenges they sometimes face as minoritiescourageously support Israel’s existence—even with its flaws and growing pains—and they want their voice to be heard.  We want to help them.

 

“I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.”  – Elie Wiesel

Why Do We Need Another Film About the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict continues to be one of the most contentious and misunderstood issues of our day. Hope in the Holy Land will delve beneath the surface of the conflict by bringing our audience in touch with people on the ground who will answer many of the questions the world is asking, such as…

Do the Jews have a right to a sovereign state in the land?

Do the Israelis and Palestinians truly hate each other?

Is modern day Zionism a foreign colonization movement?

Why have so many wars been fought to destroy Israel?

Is the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian people the root cause of the conflict?

Why are there still so many Palestinian refugees?

What do Palestinian Christians think about the conflict?

Is there any hope for peace?

Best-selling novelist, Jack Engelhard, in response to his concerns about the growing number of antisemitic laden attacks that many pro-Israel Jewish students have been facing on some U.S. college campuses, made this challenge in November 2014 to the Christian community:
     So where are the Christians who’ve been taught to love their neighbor – who’ve been raised to serve as shelters to those who suffer?  Silence?  Yes you are your brother’s keeper.  But where are you?  Your fellow students could use a helping hand. Your fellowship is urgently needed.
     The Christian community has been summoned and this film will seek to be one of those “helping hands.”

 

     “In today’s age of specialization and glut of information, often history (or the deeper stories behind people and places) gets lost.  One of the best ways to take in history is watching documentaries.  I’m a visual learner and a well-done documentary combines solid history with creative storytelling to convey deep truth and events in a quick and memorable fashion.”  – Ken Wystma, Pastor & Author

Who Are We Trying To Reach?

The primary audience we’re seeking to serve is the mainstream Christian community in the U.S., particularly the younger generation who is less familiar with the history and background of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.  But we realize that this topic is of great interest to a broader market, especially the Jewish and Muslim communities around the world, so we will make every effort to be relevant and sensitive to a diverse audience while staying true to our theological convictions.
Our end goal is to present an educational and engaging feature-length film on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that challenges and inspires Christians and their friends to stand with anyone in the Holy Land who genuinely respects the right of both Jews and non-Jews to live in peace and security.
We humbly ask you for your prayers and support as we pursue this mission.
Thank you!
