For the past 40 years, Bethlehem Bible College has been preparing Christian Palestinians to serve their local churches and communities. Next fall, with help from Andrew Bush, the college will also start preparing its students for peace and reconciliation ministry. The new venture is called the Bethlehem Center for Global Peacebuilding and Justice, and it’s a welcome initiative in a region that is suffering from decades of strife and violence. Andrew will serve as director of the Bethlehem Center.
For Andrew and his wife Karen, launching the Bethlehem Center marks their return to Palestine after a number of years of church planting in the Philippines. The Bushes served in the Palestinian Territories from 1998 to 2005 and still have a number of friends there.
Andrew has a postgraduate degree from the Ecole Biblique et Archeologique Francaise in Jerusalem and a Doctor of Ministry degree from Princeton Theological Seminary. He is the author of Learning from the Least: Reflections on a Journey in Mission with Palestinian Christians. You can learn more about the Bushes at their website.
A light lunch will be served.
