A community of Christian leaders who advocate for pluralism in
the Near East

Become a Philos Leader

We have a vision for a pluralistic Near East based on freedom and the rule of law, where nations, tribes, and religious communities can live beside each other as neighbors.

To get there, we don’t pick sides or settle for easy answers. We develop relationships, explore difficult questions, and work to build a movement of principled, practical Christian engagement.

What we've been up to recently

Pathfinder Alpha Retreat

We recently brought 25 Pathfinder participants on the Pathfinder Alpha retreat in the Texas hill country. Participants learned about Hebraic Leadership directly from Robert Nicholson.

Shine A Light Campaign

The Philos Staff recently traveled to 8 cities across the country in 8 days, as part of a campaign to stand in solidarity with our Jewish brothers and sisters to shine a light on antisemitism.

Hope in the Holy Land Premiere

We premiered our feature-length documentary, Hope in the Holy Land, in Dallas with producer Justin Kron and narrator Todd Morehead.

Philos Leadership Institute Israel Trip

In August, we finally made it back to Israel on our Philos Leadership Institute Trip. Our PLIers were challenged each day with diverse speakers and visits to new places.

Coptic Christmas Campaign

We launched our Coptic Christmas Campaign in November. We're raising money for the .copts living in the village of Il Humur, Egypt to buy Christmas outfits and food to break their 40 day fast.
