Voice of Judah Israel – Renovations Project
Every time I walk into our new congregation’s building and look around me, I stand in awe at the tangible proof that God still works miracles and wonders! This building of ours will serve as a vital and important hub for the work of the Lord in the south of Israel, but there’s still much work to be done to prepare this sanctuary. A huge benefit is that this new building is right next door to our current facility which will make the transition very smooth. At the moment the new building is just an empty structure that needs to be completely renovated and equipped to allow for a fully-functioning and comfortable congregation facility. We have already raised 250,000 USD and we are now standing in faith for the remaining 550,000 USD towards the completion all the necessary renovations and furnishings. The ultimate goal of this renovations project will be to establish a fitting sanctuary for the King of kings and to create a home base from which to efficiently and effectively conduct the work that the Lord has entrusted us with.

Would you, your congregation, your loved ones, or friends be willing to join hands with us in reaching this milestone for God’s Kingdom in Israel? Your prayers and financial support will make such an impact, and I sincerely thank you! By the way, this sanctuary will be the first Christian congregation/ministry building ever in our city!!!

This sanctuary will fulfill a vital role in our ministry in the following key areas:
This building will serve as a sanctuary where Israeli believers from Ashdod and surrounding regions can gather on a regular basis to worship the Lord and to spend time in precious fellowship and friendship, safe and secure from outside interference and persecution
Pastoral conferences and seminars:
This venue will also be used as a conference hall where local Israeli Pastors, as well as international Pastors, can gather for Pastoral conferences and seminars
Humanitarian projects, outreaches, food and clothing distributions:
It will also serve as a central hub for conducting our various humanitarian projects, among which are Gospel outreaches, food and clothing distribution, Back-to-School projects, Holocaust Survivor projects, Ukrainian Refugee Projects etc.
Children activities and educational courses:
We will also be conducting children’s concerts, classes and activities from here. Classes will include educational courses in computer literacy, art classes, and after-school assistance with homework
This building will also play host to an international Bible School where Israeli believers will be raised up and equipped for the work of ministry and evangelism. Here we will be able to receive Bible teachers from Israel, and from all over the world, to come and teach and equip Israeli believers.
Youth work and meetings:
This venue will serve as an excellent venue where our youth can gather for their youth meetings, prayer meetings and their Christian music concerts. In addition, our youth also often organizes and hosts youth conferences for young Israeli believers from all over the country, and this building will serve as an exceptional venue for this purpose.
Family courses for believers and non-believers alike:
This building will allow us to conduct Bible and family courses for newly weds, couples, families, as well as non-believers.

We aim to launch a “golden-age discipleship course” for our senior citizens and this venue will serve wonderfully for this purpose
