Holy Land Ministries exists to glorify God and provide an excellent education in the heart of the Holy Land. We do this through the operation of two Christian Schools, one in Hebron and the other in Bethlehem, both located in what is often referred to as Palestine. Our involvement in this region began in 1954 with the founding of the Hebron Home & School. A second school, the Bethlehem Christian Academy, opened in 2014. Both schools offer a high quality education in an environment that provides safety and security for all of our students.
