NEXT GENERATION LEADERSHIP
When they finish high school, many Arab Christian youth settle within a 3-mile radius of their parents’ neighborhoods. Why? Most are completely unprepared, unequipped to enter the land's mainstream workforce, and face much discrimination as a religious minority. HLM is committed to empowering new leadership among the Christian Arab community.
Participants in HLM's leadership programs enroll in a variety of activities such as workshops, simulations, seminar s, collaborative artistic endeavors, athletic activities and community outreach programs. Students are provided ongoing opportunities to interact with the majority culture, sharing perceptions and ideas, learning about each other’s religions and finding areas of mutual concern which they can address.
Expanding into NextGen Pastors and Leaders...
Raising up the next generation of effective Arab Christian leaders and pastors is key in stopping the dwindling Christian population from becoming obsolete in the Holy Land. This project started by supporting a few evangelical ministers and their families, and has grown now to encompass a full team of nextgen youth leaders that actively go out into the community and provide community services, biblical counsel, and assist in goods distribution, all while sharing the encouraging joy of the Lord.
