ICEJ: Susan Michael

For more than thirty-five years, Susan has pioneered the development of the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem in the United States and around the world. She currently serves as the ministry’s USA Director and is a member of the ICEJ’s international Board of Directors.

Susan's involvement with the ICEJ began as a graduate student at Jerusalem University College in 1980, the same year that the Christian Embassy was first established. Upon completing her Masters degree in Judeo-Christian Studies she returned from Israel with a heart to further the Embassy’s mission among fellow Americans. After a season assisting the ministry’s international leadership to host a series of high profile pro-Israel conferences across the USA, she was asked to head-up the ICEJ’s US Branch.

In addition to a Master’s Degree in Judeo-Christian Studies she has a Bachelor’s Degree in Theology from Oral Roberts University, and was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Laws by Piedmont International University in 2018. Susan is an author, gifted teacher and international speaker. She is often called upon to address complex and sensitive issues such as anti-Semitism, Islam, Jewish-Christian relations and current events in the Middle East to a diverse range of audiences. Her experience working with Arabs, Jews and Christians from many national and denominational backgrounds has equipped her to handle delicate topics central to an understanding of Israel with extraordinary clarity and grace.

In recent years she has produced a number of educational tools to enable other Christians to do the same, including the website and a series of highly accessible educational seminars. Susan has built the US Branch of the ICEJ into a scripturally-sound, balanced, and reputable ministry, evidenced in its leadership of one of the strongest networks of Evangelical leaders in America – the American Christian Leaders for Israel (ACLI).

Susan and her husband lived and worked for many years in Washington D.C. where she developed a close working relationship with the Israeli Embassy and strong connections with the US Jewish community at large. They currently reside in South Florida.


Endorsement from Dr. Jack Hayford:

Susan Michael is one of the most authentic, informed and gracious communicators I have met. I urge pastors and community leaders to schedule Susan: we need voices like hers who can provide a balanced, informative and inspiring clarity regarding Israel’s “present moment.”
