Shalom (Peace)! 🙂
Just wanted to give you an update about what’s going on these days.
Gospel Cafe Update:
We’re working hard at looking at properties for the “Gospel Cafe” in Dinky Town at the University of Minnesota campus this Spring. In case you’re not familiar with this project, the founding non-profits all have a heart for reaching Jewish people with the message of salvation through Jesus, but know full well that when you intentionally reach out to Jewish people, you reach 10-times as many non-Jewish people! Over the coming months we will be expanding our network of partner churches to help minister on campus and follow-up with new believers (and returning believers who have walked away from the Lord).
Messianic Congregation Update:
I mentioned in the last update that I am part of a steering committee helping to start a messianic congregation in the Lakeville, MN area (a suburb of Minneapolis in case you don’t know where it is). I received several responses from people asking when we’re planning on opening the doors, or at least starting meetings. To be honest, we haven’t even set a date yet. We’re still gathering the leadership team and praying about what type of congregation we will be. We’re very open to what the Lord Yeshua (Jesus) and his Father have for us! However, there is already a messianic congregation or two in the Minneapolis/St. Paul Metropolitan area that are “Orthodox” in flavor, so I don’t think we are really leaning in that direction. Especially since the people we have a heart to reach are secular Jewish people, many of whom are first and second generations from Ukrainian families.
Listen live to “To the Jew First”, on 980AM KKMS Radio in Minneapolis/St. Paul. If you’re out of the area you can stream the show at 10:00-10:30AM every Saturday, or listen to the Podcasts online at KKMS.com. The podcast page is here: http://www.kkms.com/ContentPages/1718/
