MANATEE -- Michael D. Evans, a Middle East political insider and well-known author, is scheduled to speak on “The State of Israel” today at Christian Retreat Family Church and Conference Center.
The free and open-to-the-public speech is part of Christian Retreat’s week-long Feast of Tabernacles and is set to begin at about 8 p.m. at the church, located off Upper Manatee River Road at 1200 Glory Way Blvd. in East Manatee.
“Dr. Evans will speak on what is happening right now in Israel,” said the Rev. Phil Derstine, of Christian Retreat. “He always focuses his talks on the protection and safety of Israel. I’m sure he will also reflect on Iran’s nuclear aspirations and other issues critical to the region at this time.”
Evans founded the Jerusalem Prayer Team, which has gained the support of scores of people world wide, Derstine said.
“The Prayer team has turned out a million to pray for Israel,” Derstine said.
Evans, who often makes guest appearances on the Fox Network, CNN World News, Good Morning America and other shows, has written more than 20 books, including, “Showdown with Nuclear Iran,” “The American Prophecies” and “Beyond Iraq: The Next Move.”
Feast of Tabernacles began last Wednesday and continues with all-day events through Wednesday.
