The Friends of Zion Museum in Jerusalem honored Pastor Ed Young, the senior pastor of Fellowship Church in Grapevine, Texas, this week with a token of appreciation for his support of the State of Israel.

Young and his wife Lisa toured the Friends of Zion Heritage Center’s state-of-the-art museum, which features seven exhibitions including: interactive characters, 3D technology, touch screens and surround sound.

After their tour, Young said he was “stunned by the staggering technology. My congregants are going to be stunned too. Thank you, Dr. Mike Evans, the Friends of Zion Museum is one of the best museums I’ve ever been to.”

Young was in Israel with more than 120 congregants from Fellowship Church, which is home to more than 24,000 congregants, many of which visit Israel annually with Young and his wife.


Evans serves on the Trump Faith Initiative, which in December 2017 awarded US President Donald Trump with the “Friend of Zion” award in the Oval Office for his decision to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

The Friends of Zion Museum recently surpassed 52 million members, making it one of the largest pro-Israel sites in the world.
The FOZ Museum tells the heroic stories of the non-Jews who have assisted the Jewish people throughout the Zionist movement, as well as in critical times like the Holocaust.
