HCEF Mission

"Let us work together to replace despair with HOPE, fear with human SECURITY and humiliation with DIGNITY"  


Greetings friends and supporters of HCEF!

We are very excited that in just one week, HCEF will be conducting its 



at the Washington Marriott Hotel 

 1221 22nd Street, NW Washington, D.C. 

on Friday and Saturday, October 18-19, 2013!


If you haven't yet registered to attend the conference, I invite you to register today!


Since our inception, HCEF has sought to bring together Palestinians and supporters to both learn about the issues Christian Palestinians still face, as well to celebrate the successful efforts of HCEF and its partners in the Holy Land. We also seek to continually acknowledge those who have made these successes possible with their outstanding contributions to HCEF during our Annual Awards Banquet, Friday, October 18, 2013 at 6:00 pm. Click here to learn about the 2013 HCEF Awardees.


This year we are proud to present over 20 esteemed speakers who will be discussing a variety of engaging topics on current issues and efforts taking place in the Holy Land.  Learn about the speakershere. Throughout the conference, we will focus on the daily struggles of Arab Christians in Palestine, the importance of interfaith dialogue, taking a realistic outlook on the Palestinian-Israeli peace process, and more. We've also invited Palestinian youth from the diaspora to share their testimonies on being involved with our Know Thy Heritage program. For a full description of events, please see our conference program.


HCEF is incredibly grateful for the continued help provided by those who share in our vision. We are encouraged deeply by the Letters of Support that we have received from leaders of churches and organizations who walk with us in hope.


For the past 15 years we have been able to achieve many of our dreams and continue working toward our goal of a restored Palestine and revitalized Arab Christian population because of generous contributions made by our supporters. It is my sincere hope that you will be able to join us at the conference to celebrate these past 15 years and look forward to a bright future! Register now online or by fax or mail, and please spread the word, inviting others, so we can all join together in replacing despair with hope, fear with security, and humiliation with dignity!

You can also register over the phone at 301-951-9400 ext 206. If you are unable to join us, then please consider donating. Anything you can do to support Christians in the Holy Land will help change lives.
