For Churches

Each Sunday our staff is out and about, preaching in churches, sharing our vision and mission, as well as the Word of God. Individual congregations welcome us to share our testimonies or the most oft-requested “Christ in the Passover” presentation. Some of our programs are described below. Remember, we can always come along and share a Bible sermon not listed here, as you require.
Also we speak in many Bible college chapels and classes, and Christian schools as well, especially when we are out on tour.

We travel almost anywhere from Subiaco to Surry Hills, Singapore, New Zealand, and all around Sydney to make known the Messiahship of Jesus.
Why do we go to churches if our mission is ‘to the Jews?’ We seek to relate to the church, asking for your prayers and financial participation. We need you to send us Jewish contacts and let us be an outsource to you in this regard especially. Many Christians who attend the local churches where we preach know Jewish people or work with colleagues who are Jewish. Our messages in churches are designed to help the believers know how to share with these friends, and to inspire them to do so. Christians also tell us that when they meet Jews who have found Messiah that they are encouraged that anyone can get saved!
We have referrals from many churches and church leaders, maybe this list will be useful in helping you determine our integrity and capacity to minister in the churches.

Our most popular programs include:

Christ in the Passover

Passover Sedar Table
Christ in the Passover shows the link between the ancient Festival of Redemption and Christ as the Lamb of God—your church members will never forget it! This sermonic demonstration is visual, so the congregation will actually see a table set with traditional Passover items. The missionary uses Scripture as well as the visual items to walk through a Jewish Passover seder, weaving the story of the Exodus together with the life, death and resurrection of Christ.
The words He spoke in the upper room come alive as each Hebraic item is carefully explained. Many churches finish this powerful presentation by celebrating communion, and most who have tell us that Christ in the Passover has deepened their church’s communion experience.
The presentation takes about 45 minutes and can be used before the taking of the Lord’s Supper on any given Sunday. It’s also a ‘stand alone’ sermon to be used on an off-night during one of our tours around the country. A Question/Answer period would be well worth it if on such a night.

Christ in the Feast of Tabernacles

fot.jpgChrist in the Feast of Tabernacles aims to enrich the church’s understanding of the gospel by going back to the Jewish roots of the Christian faith. We explain how the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) is a vibrant part of Jewish life today, as well as how the holiday offers a wealth of meaning for Christians who value their Old Testament heritage.

Jesus not only celebrated the Feast of Tabernacles, He used it as the occasion to reveal His nature and His mission. Christians who want to better understand the Jewish life that Jesus lived on this earth will feel they know Him even more intimately as they learn about the rituals He and His disciples observed.
“Christ in the Feast of Tabernacles” includes a clear and sensitive presentation of the gospel and it is most appropriate to invite seekers to this program. This would be a great opportunity for you to invite not only Jewish friends, but also unbelievers from any and all backgrounds, to come to your church.

The presentation is designed to fit the time frame of a worship service. It typically lasts for about 45 minutes, however can be abbreviated a bit for convenience. The missionary will need a small isolated area where the Sukkah booth can be set up. Also a small card table with a nice cloth atop will dress things up nicely.

 

Jesus in the Old Testament

Looking into the Old Testament for messianic prophecy is the only way to be sure that Jesus actually fulfilled the requirements. Using the only Bible Jesus used, our speaker will investigate the references from the Law of Moses, from the Prophets and the Writings. Depending on the length of sermon your church extends to us, we will fit into your service in both length and style.This message would take approximately 35-40 minutes to teach well and when combined with a brief video presentation of our ministry really shows the church or Bible college how we witness to Jewish folks anywhere around the world.

 

Personal Testimony

Each of our vocational staff is a Jewish believer in Jesus and we have a story to tell! Although from various Jewish backgrounds, our conclusion is that Jesus is the Messiah and Lord. And hearing what we went through in coming to that conclusion will encourage you that your Jewish friends and colleagues can also get saved.
We share the length of time you ask us, at times only minutes, and at other times up to an hour. What would you like?
We recommend about a half hour for this session.

Biblical Theology of Mission

Biblical references to the missionary enterprise did not begin when Jesus sent out the disciples in pairs or the Great Commission. Was the purpose of God’s calling Israel completely for Israel alone or was it for the world? Our missionary will use many passages showing the plan of the Almighty for the world, the centripetal view of the people of God, who were always intended to proclaim the Truth of God to the world. Light to the nations, and the failure of Jonah the prophet to do just that. Great for Bible colleges or seminars.
