ICEJ USA Director
For more than thirty years, Susan Michael 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, Susan was asked to head-up the ICEJ’s newly-founded US Branch.
A graduate in Theology from Oral Roberts University, Susan 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 Susan to handle delicate topics central to an understanding of Israel with extraordinary clarity and grace. In recent years she has pioneered a number of educational tools to enable other Christians to do the same, including the IsraelAnswers.com website and a series of highly accessible educational seminars.
Susan and her husband have lived and worked for many years in Washington D.C. where she has 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.

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.”
