Eagles’ Wings began to progressively unfold in the early 1990’s, when Robert Stearns first lived in Jerusalem.
Robert began contemplating the connection between his own Christian faith and historic Judaism, and the relevance of that connection to current times and events. Seeing faith issues in a fresh way caused Robert to desire greater spiritual authenticity in his own life, and the Christian church as a whole.
Returning to America, Robert shared details of his transformational time in Jerusalem with his long-time mentor, Pastor Tommy Reid, and other friends. With Pastor Reid’s encouragement and assistance, Robert launched the first East Coast Leadership Conference in 1994, which was Eagles’ Wings’ first major national event. Since that time, the message and influence of Eagles’ Wings have grown exponentially around the world.
Robert has spoken and performed musically in over 40 nations around the world, in venues as diverse as the United Nations, Carnegie Hall, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and the House of Lords in London. Robert’s books and Eagles’ Wings materials have been translated into dozens of languages, with writings featured by the New York Times, the Jerusalem Post, and many other media outlets.
We are a global movement advancing three biblical mandates:
Actively praying and working for a just and lasting peace for Jerusalem.
Renewing the importance of Spiritual community of the early church
Finding a shared common values to build upon them.
