Celebrating 18 Years at Beit Hallel
When God stopped me in my tracks 18 years ago and clearly told me He was calling me to start a Hebrew speaking congregation in Ashdod, little did I know that over the years God will build it into something far greater than I could ever have imagined.
Biblical Ashdod is mentioned many times in the Bible, there’s great history in this city, but what drew me the most was the prophetic future God outlined and showed me that this city holds.
Zechariah 9:6-7 speaks about the future of Ashdod, and that scripture became the driving force behind our vision.
…But he who remains (in Ashdod), even he shall be for our God, And shall be like a leader in Judah.
Zechariah 12 also speaks about the upcoming revival in Ashdod, as well as other cities of Judea.
That Word was the building block of our work ever since. Just seeing what the Lord has done over the past 18 years, how many lives He touched and changed, thousands touched by the gospel, growing Beit Hallel into one of the biggest congregations in Israel currently.
Thinking of the future fills us with excitement! God’s glory is only growing, as we make Yeshua known to the nation of Israel.
Watch this powerful message from pastor Israel about Beit Hallel’s humble beginnings to growing into one of the largest most dynamic Hebrew speaking congregations in Israel, as well as what the future holds as we move forward, building on the solid foundation — our Lord and Savior, Yeshua the Messiah!
Thank you for being a part of our journey and for many more amazing years to come.
Beit Hallel is a Messianic Jewish congregation in Ashdod, led by pastor Israel Pochtar, serving holocaust survivors and the poor and needy locally and throughout the nation of Israel, while building up the body of Messiah in the promised land of Israel.
