This is Heartbreaking, but You Can Change it

Statistics say that 92% of all spiritual leaders worldwide have NO BIBLE TRAINING. This is both sobering and heartbreaking.

We desperately need to develop leaders who can guide and disciple in the Jewish harvest fields that are ripe and ready today!

Although there is great upheaval in Ukraine, spiritual fervency is on the rise among God’s ancient people. While some are immigrating to Israel, others feel God’s call to stay and preach the Good News to receptive hearts.

We are training quality students for important leadership rolls in strategic areas of the world. Since starting our first Bible school in 1996 in Ukraine, the Messianic Jewish Bible Institute has grown to over 1000 students enrolled today studying in some 40 countries. These students have GREAT potential to multiply and spread what they have received.

Whether it be through classroom instruction in the former Soviet Union, Israel and Ethiopia — to DVD schools in the bush among the Jewish Lemba tribe of Zimbabwe — to online study in places as unexpected as Iraq, the MJBI is reaching out to fulfill our two-fold mission to train leaders to serve in Jewish ministry and congregations and to educate the Church on God’s heart for the Jewish people.

We are living in days of great peril but great opportunity.

People are coming to the Lord in huge numbers and Jewish people are embracing with faith the Messiah of Israel and the Savior of the nations, Yeshua. The MJBI offers some of the most balanced, sound, and respected instruction worldwide by honored Messianic Jewish and Christian leaders.

As an important friend and partner of the MJBI, you and I together have a unique opportunity to raise the percentage of trained Jewish ministry leaders worldwide! We can effect eternal change in Jewish and Gentile lives by training and equipping. Your generous and significant gift given by December 31st will be tax deductible.

The world is in turmoil, and we are sobered. But we greet and plan for the New Year with great joy, as we prepare for our Lord’s soon return. God has called us to press forward with our international schools and online study around the world!

Your gift will make an impact on the important Jewish harvest fields of Ukraine, Ethiopia, Israel, Zimbabwe, and beyond. Let us turn the tide of evil in our day. Let us work while the sun still shines! Let’s give generously, as Messiah has given to us!
