The event is being streamed live to some 90 million people worldwide.

While reports warn of waning support for Israel by millennial Evangelicals, hundreds of young Christian leaders are present at the event.
 

Pastors from around the globe, many of whom are in Israel for the first time are attending the festival which is celebrating not only Israel’s 70th anniversary but also the 50th year since Jerusalem was unified.


In addition to stops all around Jerusalem, the festival will also held a prayer session in Bethlehem to show solidarity with the organization’s Arab Christian brothers and sisters.

“As representatives of God’s love, we want to build these bridges wherever we go,” Stearns said.
