It is no easy task to shepherd a congregation, and it becomes extra challenging when you’re pastoring a local congregation in a complex country like Israel.
The calling to be a pastor is a remarkable one. Considering how much God loves people, it is no surprise that He doesn’t anoint just anyone to pastor His people. It is no secret that pastors carry a great deal of responsibility on their shoulders.
Our goal as an apostolic messianic ministry is to provide local Israeli pastors with an opportunity to be refreshed, recharged and restored in a safe and nurturing environment. Taking a moment out of a hectic schedule where it is all about people, and bringing them into a place where it is all about God and them, as He fills their vats with “new wine”, fresh anointing, guidance, training and a moment to just stop and breathe.
This is the type of pastoral retreat we had in mind when we set out to organize one.
It was important for us to provide this environment for our local pastors, which is exactly what we have prepared for this upcoming 11-16 December in Cyprus.
A total of 74 pastors and senior leaders will fly out to Cyprus to join our unique pastoral retreat and training.
In these uncertain times we’re living in, when the world is facing one crisis after another, we are in dire need of strong and godly leaders, our priority is to invest in equipping and building up the pastors in our communities in Israel.
We are still $7,600 short, which is the amount needed to help cover the remaining 25 (out of 75) pastors and leaders who will join our retreat in Cyprus.
Would you consider investing in Israeli pastors, providing them with the much-needed opportunity to be equipped, trained and recharged as they carry the great calling of shepherding God’s flock in the land of Israel?
If you help sponsor one pastor through a gift of $300, or 10 through a gift of $3,000, please know you are sowing into the very future of Israeli congregations that have a crucial role to play in the future of this nation, as well as the global body of Christ.
Thank you and God bless!
