The annual Christian Media Summit conference is taking place this week in Jerusalem. The four-day summit brings together a select group of top Christian media broadcasters, publishers, journalists, and communicators from around the world for discussion and study on topics related to Israel and the Christian world.

The Ministry of Jerusalem Affairs and Heritage, together with the Government Press Office (GPO), helped to organize the event.

Mark Jenkins, the President of the Words of Visionary Missionaries, said at the conference that the delegates at the conference were "people who certainly have a heart for Israel. These are people who are typically Israel advocates in the United States."

James Smith, the Communications Vice President of the National Religious Broadcasters, said that the conference is "an attempt to help Christians understand why Israel matters politically, from a security standpoint, from a historical standpoint, and why Christians should understand that, and should support Israel's interests."
