Study the Near East online for free

Philos Academy

The Philos Project offers free education and leadership programs for Christians to learn about Israel, the Near East, and the roots of their faith.

Get to know the civilizations and geopolitics of the Near East with over a dozen free, self-guided courses taught by experts. Complete the required coursework to receive your certificate (which can be added to your resume and LinkedIn) and advance to the next stage of our education programs!

Apply your knowledge

Leadership Retreat

Bring what you’ve learned from the online Academy to real-world application with like-minded Christians. Our weekend retreat includes case studies and lectures from experts.

Travel to the Holy Land

Leadership Institute

After the online Academy and retreat, apply to join our select leaders in the Holy Land for a week-long trip. These on-the-ground experiences will strengthen your understanding of the people groups, cultures, and places of the Near East.


The Philos Project is a Christian community advocating for pluralism in the Near East, Zionism, and spiritual restoration in the West. Our programs and communities reconnect Christians with their Judeo-Christian roots in Israel to help them lead global change. Through our free education and leadership programs, Christians will experience expert-guided and on-the-ground education, hands-on advocacy, and community amongst like-minded Christians.
