Bishop Edwin Harper, Apostolic Life Cathedral, to Speak at AIPAC Conference in Washington, DC
Bishop Edwin Harper, Senior Pastor of The Apostolic Life Cathedral, is scheduled as a featured speaker at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) annual Policy Conference in Washington, D.C. March 20-22. AIPAC works with the United States Congress on a bipartisan basis to strengthen the US-Israel relationship. The conference will host more than 16,000 pro- Israel Americans from the Jewish, Christian, African American, Hispanic, Progressive, and Veterans communities. Bishop Harper has been active in AIPAC as a grassroots leader since 2011. More recently he was a key leader in rallying more than 700 attendees at the University of Charleston Town Hall hosted by Senator Joe Manchin III concerning the dangers of the bad Iran Nuclear Deal. In response to his constituents’ overwhelming concern, he opposed the Iran deal.
In the past, AIPAC’s Policy Conference has featured- as speakers- American Presidents and Vice-Presidents, Israeli Prime Ministers, Democrat and Republican leaders in Congress and an array of inspirational and expert guests who tout the importance of the US and Israel as strong allies.
In 2011 Bishop Harper traveled as a guest of the American Israel Education Foundation, affiliated with AIPAC. The Education Seminar focused on learning about the issues and innovations in the Jewish state through a series of briefings from a variety of Israeli leaders. Although a longtime supporter of Israel, his trip motivated him to advocate on behalf of the nation of Israel to engage and educate members of the United States Senate and House of Representatives on legislation that directly benefits both nations and promotes Israel’s safety in a dangerous part of the world.
Bishop Harper has spoken at the annual Day of Israel celebrations held in downtown Huntington. The Bishop and his wife Sharon have pastored the Apostolic Life Cathedral for the past thirty years.
These Crusades are entirely focused on children receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost.
During the 2015 Kid's Crusades 1,253 kids in 12 districts were filled with the Holy Ghost!
