Rev. Samuel Rodriguez and the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference (NHCLC) and its pro-Israel initiative, the Hispanic Israel Leadership Coalition (HILC)—the largest pro-Israel Hispanic organization in the world—are pleased to announce a new partnership with the president’s task force, a division of the Friends of Zion (FOZ) Heritage Center in Jerusalem.
A non-political organization comprised of presidents of major Christian organizations, the president’s task force executive committee includes Gov. Mike Huckabee, Dr. Ronnie Floyd, Rev. Jentezen Franklin, Dr. Robert Jeffress and Dr. Jack Graham.
FOZ is dedicated to the defense of Israel and the Jewish people by highlighting the courageous acts of Christian Zionists who partnered with the Jewish people to establish the modern state of Israel.
Together, FOZ and HILC are committed to promoting pro-Israel values within the Hispanic American community as well as the Spanish-speaking diaspora by confronting anti-Semitism in all of its forms, as well as the boycott, divest and sanctions movement known as BDS.
“We at HILC/NHCLC are proud to partner with Friends of Zion’s president’s task force and with its tireless founder, Dr. Mike Evans,” says Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Conference and HILC.
“The aim of our partnership is to leverage the unparalleled access and influence of FOZ within Israel, along with the formidable social media and content production capabilities to further promote pro-Israel values within the Hispanic Christian community around the world. Our message is clear: Israel, her people and her leaders have no truer friends than Hispanic Christians. Our partnership with FOZ will help ensure it stays that way for generations to come.”
President and founder of FOZ, Mike Evans adds, “We are tremendously excited for what this new partnership with Rev. Rodriguez and the NHCLC/HILC represents, both for FOZ but more importantly for Israel and her people. There is already a natural love and kinship between Israel and Hispanic Christians, and a partnership with the NHCLC, the largest Hispanic Christian organization in the world, opens up the opportunity for us to equip millions of people in the U.S. and throughout Central and South America with the tools and content they need to combat the hate-filled messages of BDS and anti-Semitism. We look forward to a powerful partnership for years to come.”
