Inside Giving: Inspiring Stories of Biblical Generosity

Jeremy Courtney, loving his neighbors on the front lines in the Middle East

June 10, 2019

In the aftermath of September 11, Jeremy Courtney of Preemptive Love Coalition moved to the Middle East to serve in the midst of chaos and violence that would make most of us run the other way. Instead, his family chose to move toward the devastation, to be neighbors. Jeremy joined us on our Inside Giving podcast several months ago to give us an up-close and very personal look from the neighborhoods that are on the front lines in Syria and Iraq, where war and violence had destroyed whole towns "street by street by street." But, Jeremy says, “Violence doesn’t get the last word. We do. It seeks to drive us apart through fear. That’s why we have to show up on the front lines of conflict and love anyway.”
