The National Christian Leadership Conference for Israel (NCLCI) was formally established in 1978 when some 400 Christians, reflecting a broad spectrum of backgrounds, met in Washington, D.C. on the 30th anniversary of the founding of the modern State of Israel.

This diverse gathering registered its opposition to bills before the U.S. Congress authorizing the sale of sophisticated weapons to Arab countries. 

Many of these church leaders had been associated with NCLCIʼs forerunners, including the Christian Council on Palestine which labored on behalf of European Jewry during World War II, and the American Palestine Committee which supported a national homeland in Palestine for displaced and exiled Jews.

It was the Rev. Dr. Franklin H. Littell, a distinguished United Methodist church historian, who organized NCLCIʼs immediate predecessor, Christians Concerned for Israel (CCI), after the Six-Day War. CCI sought to foster dialogue between Jews and Christians regarding Israel. Out of this continuing concern NCLCI was born.

 

NCLCI

This network of Christians from diverse backgrounds exists to encourage and develop understanding and support for the people, land and State of Israel in the North American Christian community.

 

EDUCATION

From its inception, NCLCI has attracted distinguished scholars who seek to acquaint Christians with their indebtedness to Jews and Judaism, build Jewish-Christian cooperation in relation to Israel, and strengthen Christian support for the Jewish State.
