Dr. Mike Evans
Dr. Michael D. Evans, a Christian Zionist, is an outspoken supporter of the State of Israel and the Jewish people. His work as a minister, author, philanthropist, commentator, and journalist has positively influenced millions of people in dozens of countries.
Dr. Evans is the founder of The Mike Evans Museum in Jerusalem, also known as Friends of Zion Heritage Center. The Center honors those in the past who showed courage - and in some cases sacrificed their lives - to protect the Jewish people.
Israel and Jerusalem are central to Dr. Evans’ lifelong passion and support of the Jewish people. For more than three decades, Dr. Evans has been a trusted counselor to Israel’s prime ministers, including the nation’s current leader, Benjamin Netanyahu. “In his devotion to Israel, Mike has consistently demonstrated the moral clarity that is necessary to defend Israel against the lies and distortions of its enemies,” Prime Minister Netanyahu has said.
Ehud Olmert, former Prime Minister and a one-time mayor of Jerusalem, added, “I consider [Mike] to be a great friend of Jerusalem and the State of Israel.”
Dr. Evans is a prolific author and documentary maker. He has written multiple New York Times bestsellers. Never afraid to speak candidly and forcefully in his support of Israel, Dr. Evan is the author of “Jimmy Carter: The Liberal Left and World Chaos.”
In January 2002, Dr. Evans founded the Jerusalem Prayer Team, a global organization whose supporters include Joel Osteen, Pat Robertson, John Maxwell, and more than 300 other national Christian leaders who encourage intercessory prayer for Israel. The nonprofit has also provided Dr. Evans the opportunity to speak out on behalf of Israel to world leaders at United Nations conferences and elsewhere on the world stage.
Other organizations that Dr. Evans has founded include: the Corrie ten Boom Fellowship; the Evans Institute of Middle East Studies; The Jerusalem World News; TimeWorthy Books; and more.
