After this I will return 
   and rebuild David’s fallen tent. 
  Its ruins I will rebuild, 
  and I will restore it, 
that the rest of mankind may seek the Lord

ACTS 15:16-17a  NIV

The TENT Inc is a group of ministries dedicated to bringing all of God's people into the love, fellowship, redemption and reconciliation found within His tent. The TENT grew out of His Palace Ministries which was begun by Chrissie Shaheen in 1998:

"I met Jesus as my Lord and Savior in 1988 in Atlanta, Georgia and ten years later He allowed me to serve Him in Jerusalem. It was during this mission that I was called into a ministry of healing and reconciliation by building relationships, and encouraging Christian women throughout Israel and the West Bank. While working in this ministry, the Lord gave me the vision of establishing ministry homes for women which now has become a reality...dedicated to providing refreshment, restoration and renewal for women."

In the Fall of 2010, The TENT opened its first women's center in east Jerusalem. Within this women's center, called The Oasis (or Al Wahaa in Arabic), was the Cup of Joy coffee shop. The Oasis and Cup of Joy provided a special place for women to enjoy freedom, love and fellowship. Chrissie and her team provided classes, counseling, friendship and even "salon days" where women could be pampered and taught how beautiful and loved they are. Our center in East Jerusalem has come to a close and God has opened a new opportunity in the West Bank/Palestine for a Cup of Joy coffee shop. We would love to have you support us in prayer and partner with us financially as we respond to God's leading in Ramallah with Christ's love!
