RFI Executive Director Kent Hill spoke alongside more than twenty members of Congress and other Middle East experts on the realities of the Middle East as part of the In Defense of Christians 2016 National Advocacy Convention.
The theme of the conference was "Beyond Genocide: Preserving Christianity in the Middle East"
In his address, Hill looked at the urgency not only of providing aid and assistance to those communities at risk of extinction in places like Iraq and Syria, but also of strengthening and supporting the communities in the region that are at risk, but not on life support.
Places like Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, and even Turkey, present an opportunity to strengthen the presence of Christianity and demonstrate that diverse communities can live together again.
