The Foursquare Church made history this week as nearly 3,000 ministers, delegates and guests came together for the first time at the Jerusalem International Convention Center in Israel for the movement's annual convention, themed "On Earth as it Is in Heaven."

Foursquare President Jack Hayford opened the convention with local Israelis playing the shofar, and a Jerusalem rabbi speaking blessing over the convention and its delegates. During the four-day event that concluded on Wednesday, convention attendees worshiped with recording artists Ken Medema and Tommy Walker and heard from Foursquare’s own Pastor Jack, Glenn Burris Jr. and Mike Larkin.

Other speakers included Ari & Shira Sorko-Ram, Asher Intrater, Wayne Hilsden and Samuel Smadja. Delegates also experienced The Covenant, a dramatic team that recounted the miraculous story of the Jewish people.
