Fearless and Free

270 young Jewish and Arab Believers, 13-18-year-olds, gathered for a week with 60 more (19-26-year-olds) joining them on the weekend for Dor Haba's summer youth conference "Fearless and Free." The heart of the conference was "to encourage personal encounters with the Lord, a lifestyle of intercessory prayer, the forming of key friendships that will foster unity in the body for years to come, and a space where they can use their gifts and talents to be a light for Yeshua. Over this week, they worked together on over 25 different Creative Projects in the areas of Music, Film, Photography, Art, Graffiti, App Development, Video Game Design, Dance, and Drama."

According to Dor Haba, it was "an incredible time of growth in the areas of unity, intimacy with the Lord, leadership, and creativity."

Watch this amazing recap video that was filmed and edited by film students at the conference:

Every year, this conference provides an awesome opportunity for Believers from Jewish and Arab backgrounds, who often would never meet each other in their normal lives, to build friendships and bridge the cultural and political differences that divide their communities. Where the world preaches hatred and revenge, Yeshua (Jesus) calls us to love our enemies and our neighbours. Through engaging in creative projects that honour both the Hebrew and Arabic languages, and through building a foundation of worship and prayer together - deep friendships are formed and worldviews focused on the Kingdom of God. In Yeshua, there is forgiveness and peace and hope for the future as we work together in unity.

"For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility And Freedom!"

Ephesians 2:14

The young people went out into the city of Netanya to perform music, dance, and theatre skits to encourage passers by with their message of hope.

They also recorded new songs they had created in Hebrew and Arabic during the conference as well as music videos to share the message wider. One of the videos using a worship song called, "Not ashamed!" features Jewish and Arab kids coming together to sing and dance with joy. The message of the song is all about not being afraid to declare your faith in Yeshua.

To the Jews who had believed him, Yeshua said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” They answered him, “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?” Yeshua replied, “Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

John 8:31-36 31

Keep praying for these young people that the truths God spoke to them will go deep and that this generation will truly be fearless and free as they live out their lives for God's Kingdom!
