Former President George W. Bush will speak at a Texas fundraiser in November for a group that tries to convert Jews into accepting Jesus Christ as the Messiah, Mother Jones reported Thursday.

The Messianic Jewish Bible Institute seeks to “defend” Israel and bring about the second coming of Christ, preaching that salvation by Jesus is consistent with Jewish theology.

Bush will reportedly discuss his experiences in the White House at the event, according to the organization’s website

“President Bush will also share his passion for setting people free, which is fitting for this year’s theme, ‘Rekindle,'” Alisa Stephenson, the organization’s director of events and partner relations, wrote in a post about the event.

Conservative radio show host Glenn Beck spoke at the event last year.
