Church & Organizational Partners

 CMEP helps churches, organizations, leaders, and individuals advocate for justice and peace for all peoples in knowledgeable, timely, holistic, and effective ways. We rely on partnerships to promote a just and lasting peace in the Middle East.

What does it mean to be a CMEP partner?


We engage with our church partners by:

  • A monthly tailored newsletter that includes updates on events, happenings in the Middle East, spiritual resources, and liturgical materials 
  • Individual touchpoints and discipleship support with CMEP’s Programs and Outreach manager to discuss opportunities for engaging with Middle East justice in your community 
  • Early-bird access to hosting CMEP speakings during our annual Pilgrimage to Peace Speaking Tours 
  • Individualized pilgrimage experiences for your congregation to take in the spirit, history, and politics of the Holy Land 
  • Are our go-to communities when constituents reach out looking for a new church home that supports justice in the Middle East
  • …and much more! 

We hope you will consider partnering with us.
