Serve in Israel during Sukkot

Warm greetings from Jerusalem!

Since its inception in 1980, the Christian celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles has been a vital and central part of the ministry of the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem to comfort the people of Israel (Isaiah 40:1) in practical expressions of friendship and support. Pilgrims come from many nations to worship the Lord, pray for the peace of Jerusalem and bless Israel in this time of restoration. We believe that celebrating the Feast each year honors the Lord in anticipation of the fulfillment of the words spoken by Zechariah when “the nations (...) shall come up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of Hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles” (Zechariah 14:16).

The Christian Celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles is held during the Jewish celebration of Succot (Leviticus 23). It is a celebration of unity, joy, rest and restoration. Traditionally, it celebrates the ingathering of the harvest, the coming of the rains, the protection and the provision of God to His people during the unforgiving emptiness of the desert. In receiving the promised Messiah, we have become Tabernacles for His glory.

Throughout the years, the ICEJ has been blessed by gifted, dedicated, and servant hearted individuals who have come year after year to serve on teams such as Ushering, Security, Children’s Program, Registration, Catering, Tech & Stage Production, and more! We believe the Lord specifically calls people each year and places a desire in their hearts to serve, sacrifice, and be challenged and encouraged in their walk with Christ during this festive season in Jerusalem. 

Ministering at the Feast tests you in many ways - spiritually, physically, and financially; it is a time of awakening. It continues to be our prayer that the Feast Team Members who serve with us in Jerusalem experience a time of spiritual refreshing and growth and that they may leave Israel with a renewed vision and a fresh sense of purpose for their life and their walk with the Lord!
