TOGETHER FOR ISRAEL: SCOTT VOLK
Together for Israel is a non-profit ministry that exists to fulfill the biblical mandate to support those laboring in the land of Israel. We support the believers in Israel by unashamedly raising funds that specifically go to those who are laboring in the Land for the Gospel (Rom. 15:26-27). We are also a support for the Church as we bring clear Biblical teaching regarding God’s heart for Israel as well as themes related to the Church coming into its necessary ‘fullness’ which must happen before Israel is saved (Rom 11:25-26).
MAOZ: TIFERET YESHUA CONGREGATION - TEL AVIV
Congregation Tiferet Yeshua began in 1995, shortly after a large outreach event where the Maoz Ministry Team performed an arts and music presentation at a major downtown Tel Aviv intersection, where hundreds gathered to listen and watch. Since 1995, our congregation has flourished and grown, and sent out multiple leaders throughout the nation. We believe every member has a call and an assignment, and it is the goal of Tiferet Yeshua to identify and release those gifts in believers to bless the Messianic community throughout our nation, reaching our Israeli people with the life-changing message of Eternal Life.
SHEMEN SASSON CONGREGATION: JERUSALEM
Congregation Shemen Sasson is an Israeli community in Jerusalem, comprised of people from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds who believe in the Bible; Old and New Covenants, as the inspired word of ￼God. We honor Yeshua of Nazareth as the promised Messiah of Israel. We believe that only through Yeshua's atoning sacrifice can man make peace with God, and that through his resurrection and ascension, we have hope for eternal life.
As disciples of Yeshua residing in Jerusalem, we have embraced the calling!
"to console those who mourn in zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy (shemen sasson) for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified." Isaiah 61:3
