ICEJ Conference draws hundreds in Germany, meanwhile ICEJ-USA welcomes Jerusalem leadership for LA, Dallas meetings
More than a thousand believers took part in the event organized by ICEJ-Germany and the Bible College of Christ for the Nations in Bad Gandersheim. During the conference about a hundred children also enjoyed a special Israel Day on the premises of the college.

Main speakers included Gottfried Bühler, Director of ICEJ-Germany, Pastor Ingolf Ellßel, Chairman of the International Board of the ICEJ, Pastor Oded Shoshani from Jerusalem, and his wife Sandy Shoshani, who leads a nationwide pro-life ministry in Israel, and several others.

This event also marked the 10th anniversary of the fruitful cooperation between the college and the ICEJ. “The many different projects and events initiated by the ICEJ are a real blessing of the Lord,” said Gerry Klein, director of the college who regularly invites speakers from the ICEJ to teach at his school.

“The Bible College is a strong base for Israel in the north of Germany,” said Gottfried Bühler. “We are very blessed to work with [you].” The Shoshanis were especially moved by the fact that the main building of the Bible College was originally built by Adolf Hitler to house his notorious motorcycle corps. “What an amazing thing that Jesus is preached here today and that there is life after death!” they said.


The ICEJ’s executive director Dr. Jürgen Bühler was welcomed by the ICEJ-USA branch for a series of meetings in November, including a pair of pastors’ luncheons in Los Angeles and Dallas which drew dozens of local pastors and Christian leaders. The L.A. meeting was co-hosted by Dr. Jack Hayford and the Israeli consul general in Los Angeles, Samuel Grundwerg.

The one in Dallas was co-hosted by Lewis Hogan of United Cry as well as the Israeli consul general in Houston, Ambassador Eitan Levon. Pastors at both events were very grateful for the opportunity to engage with Dr. Bühler and learn more about the ICEJ’s ministry. While in the US, he also spoke at Skyline Church with Pastor Jim Garlow in San Diego, CA; Christ for the Nations Institute in Dallas, TX; and the annual conference of the International Coalition of Apostolic Leaders held in Dallas. He was accompanied by his wife, Vesna, and joined for the meetings in Texas by the ICEJ’s International Director, Rev. Juha Ketola.
