January 22 – Why Israel – Washington Heights, NY

Iglesia REVIVE Church is a vibrant congregation led by 24 year old Pastor Michael Garcia. This young man has a grasp on the basics of Israel and the Christian responsibility toward the Jewish people. Pastor Michael  is a reader and mature beyond his years.

Sharing in this church was an honor for me. Young couples, college students, single professionals and some older adults are the demographics of their group. It was interesting to note they were more familiar with issues regarding the present day Middle East and Israel, etc than older topics such as pre-war anti semitism and the Holocaust. While they may be typical of young adults today, their interest, focus and questions inspired hope for the future.
