JERUSALEM, Jan. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Dr. Jack Graham, the Pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church in Texas, visited the Friend of Zion museum during his visit to Jerusalem this week. Prestonwood Baptist Church is one of the nation’s largest, most dynamic congregations.
When Dr. Graham came to Prestonwood in 1989, the 8,000-member congregation responded enthusiastically to his straightforward message and powerful preaching style. Now thriving with more than 40,000 members, Prestonwood continues to grow.
Pastor Graham is a well known supporter of Israel, and on his latest visit to the holy land, he was accompanied by a large delegation composed of over 140 Prestonwood members.
Pastor Graham was filled with praise after experiencing the Friends of Zion museum tour: “The visit was a tremendous experience. The museum is the story of a legacy, of a life lived, a life-changing story of the history and fate of Israel. I was personally very moved by it and I am now filled with motivation to tell that story, of the amazing people who, throughout the generations, helped the land of Israel.”
The FOZ Museum is one of the newest attractions in the very heart of Jerusalem inviting visitors from all over the world to experience the courageous stories of Christians who have supported the Jewish people and the State of Israel in the last 200 years. Among the inspiring heroes presented are US President Harry Truman, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, Pastor George Bush, Major-General Orde Wingate and Righteous Among the Nations Irena Sendler, Oskar Schindler, Raoul Wallenberg, and the Ten Boom family, who risked their lives to save Jews persecuted throughout the world, as well as many others who, through their faith, have forged an everlasting bond between Jewish and Christian people.
Magnificently told, the FOZ Museum uses groundbreaking technology, allowing visitors to experience the unfolding story as though stepping back in time. Exhibits employ a wide range of integrated and interactive technologies, from 3D presentations and giant touch screens to video mapping projections on unique sculptures and complex roto scope animations that transform live-action video footage into a painted media.
The FOZ Museum opened in Jerusalem in 2015 with the vision of serving as a bridge, enabling people from around the world to join the scores of people throughout history who have supported the people, the promise and State of Israel.
