16. Christine Darg
Christine Darg, together with her husband Peter, is the co-founder of the Jerusalem Channel. Trained also as broadcast journalists, the Dargs’ call to Israel was confirmed in 1978 when they were selected by the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) to open a news bureau in Jerusalem. Their work and raising a young family in Israel would be an opportunity to meet Jews, Arabs and Christians within Israel and beyond with trips to worn-torn Beirut, Amman, Damascus, Cairo, Baghdad and the Gulf states. But Jerusalem would always be the base for what became their burgeoning Exploits Ministry. Today, Exploits Ministry reaches globally out of Jerusalem to all nations via Revelation TV and The Jerusalem Channel, with Bible Workers Congresses in many nations as well as three annual prayer convocation insiders’ tours to Israel. For a decade, Christine held monthly prayer fellowships in Jerusalem, bringing tourists to Israel 120 times. Since 1975, she has traveled to Israel more than 200 times for television and tour purposes. Christine won the Tourism Award from the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus and Israel’s Ministry of Tourism.
Israel and the Church exist side-by-side once again in history, and the People of the Book are standing together. As a Judeo-Christian believer, it is my honour and privilege to stand with Israel and the Bible, the foundations of my faith.Christine Darg
