Who We Are

The Philos Project is the network hub for leaders and future leaders who are committed to promoting positive Christian engagement in the Middle East. Our mission includes:

  • Proclaiming friendship with those in the region who support liberty and justice for all peoples;
  • Reviving an intellectually rigorous Christian approach to foreign policy, especially as it relates to the Middle East;
  • Educating Christians on the theological, historical, and political issues surrounding Israel and the Jewish people; and
  • Empowering the church to advocate for real peace in tangible ways.

Our vision is a pluralistic Middle East based on freedom and rule of law where nations, tribes, and religious communities can live beside each other as neighbors. Perfect peace will not come until the Prince of Peace returns, but we seek to advance the spirit of His Kingdom in this present age.

To that end, we provide immersive tours in the region, educational programming, media, thought leadership, and advocacy. Ultimately we aim to be a resource and force-multiplier for Christian leaders as they think about and engage with this part of the world.
