Russian Messianic Jewish Leaders Conference
Our largest training conference yet for Russian-speaking Messianic Jewish leaders took place in Kraków, Poland, with 160 leaders in attendance. The wonderful spirit of peace and unity made this a powerful time of fellowship, encouragement, training, sharing, and support for these critical leaders.
The statistics certainly show that your support for Russian-speaking Messianic Jewish leaders is bearing fruit:
- The number of Russian-speaking Messianic Jewish people has doubled in the last ten years! There are 25,000 Russian-speaking Messianic Jews worldwide.
- The largest Messianic congregation of Russian-speaking Jewish people is in Kiev, Ukraine, and many of the representatives at the training conference were Messianic leaders from Ukraine.
- The number of Messianic congregations in Ukraine has tripled over the past five years, and in that time the number of Messianic congregations in Russia has doubled.
- Most Messianic congregations in Israel are Russian-speaking congregations.
The Lord is doing a wonderful work among Russian-speaking Jewish people in Europe, Israel, and around the world. We feel privileged to be able to offer an annual training conference for the leaders of these congregations and outreaches, and we are grateful to you for your support!
Who is thankful for you this Thanksgiving?
By Mitch Glaser
President of Chosen People Ministries
This is the season of Thanksgiving, and of course I am offering my gratitude to God for all He has done for me.
Among the chief blessings I count in my life is a wonderful family of support for Chosen People Ministries. I am thankful for you this Thanksgiving.
Because of you, and friends like you, Chosen People Ministries exists to glorify God, proclaim the gospel to the Jew first and also to the Gentile, and develop resources and programs to accomplish this task.
With your partnership, we place the worker above the work and stay concerned with promoting the welfare of the Jewish community and combating antisemitism wherever it arises.
Thank you for standing alongside us and reaching out with the truth about the Jewish Messiah, for Jewish people everywhere.
Because of you, I get to share incredible stories like the one in this update—stories of Jewish people transformed because of your generosity and prayers. Thank you for standing with me and living out Romans 1:16: “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.”
