Evangelism and Discipleship
“Go therefore and make disciples” (Matthew 28:19) is still a biblical imperative. Throughout the world, Chosen People Ministries proclaims the Gospel and nurtures both new and mature believers so that they will grow in the Lord and use their gifts for His glory.
Our Messianic centres are focal points for ministry of all types. In addition to evangelism and discipleship, they provide a setting for worship, Bible study, spiritual counselling and practical help. Seekers find a welcoming environment at our Messianic centres that can lead to new life through the power of the Gospel.
It isn’t always easy for Jewish people to fit into churches. Jewish believers sometimes face rejection by their families, and they especially need the fellowship of those with a similar story. Messianic congregations satisfy this need, and also lift up a witness in the community that Jesus is Lord, and that one can be Jewish and believe in Him.
Equipping the Local Church for Jewish Evangelism
Chosen People Ministries has a wide variety of special presentations, such as “Messiah in the Passover,” designed to help the church gain a greater appreciation of its Jewish roots.
Chosen People Ministries also organizes conferences that offer churches and learning institutions a chance to co-sponsor well-publicized major outreach programs designed to reach a broad range of Jewish and Gentile community members.
Chosen People Ministries offers monthly and quarterly publications on topics of interest to church members and Jewish readers. Our monthly newsletter, The Chosen People, will keep you up-to-date regarding the various developments and prayer concerns vital to the Mission. We also offer a wide variety of books, online resources, DVDs, and CDs at our online store.
Digital and Online Ministry
Technological advances have given us a new, exciting way to reach Jewish people with the Gospel. Before 2014, Chosen People Ministries relied on advertising through billboards, subways, buses and newspapers. Now we are reaching tens of thousands of Jewish people through our online Isaiah 53 campaigns and I Found Shalom videos. The anonymity of the web is the key to these successful outreaches because learning about Jesus is considered taboo in Jewish homes and communities. Our Isaiah 53 campaign breaks through that wall and allows Jewish people to hear the Gospel message in a safe place and in a safe way.
Volunteer and Short-term Missions Opportunities
Chosen People Ministries has a number of volunteer and short-term outreach opportunities for people of all ages in the United States and abroad. For example, our Shalom Toronto and Shalom Hamilton outreaches prepare volunteers through specialized classes to share the Gospel with Jewish people. Together with Chosen People Ministries’ staff members, team members go out and put what they have learned into practice. We also have a similar program in New York City and outreach trips to Israel, New Zealand and India.
Chosen People Ministries desires to be not only on the cutting and innovative edge of Jewish evangelism, but we also want to build up young people who have a strong desire to reach the Jewish people with the Gospel.
We have a number of internships that provide students opportunities to complete their studies and focus in areas such as missions, digital media, IT, and finance.
Long-Term Missions Opportunities
God calls some people into full-time ministry with Chosen People Ministries. We assist applicants in determining if they are being called to the work of representing the Messiah to Jewish people. A sincere heart for reaching Jewish people with the Gospel is the first requirement to serve as a full-time worker, particularly in light of the biblical mandate to bring the Gospel “to the Jew first and also to the Greek” (Romans 1:16).
It is our sincere desire to share the Gospel with the Jewish people in ways that are challenging and compelling. We always seek to enrich the life of the church and to minister to other members of the Body of Messiah. Chosen People Ministries is ready, with God’s help and your prayers and support, to reach out to the Jewish people of the 21st century and equip you to do likewise.
