Celebrate Messiah New Zealand seeks and welcomes partnerships with local churches that share our burden to bring the Gospel to the Jewish people. We know that no part of the Body can function properly when it is disconnected from the other members (1 Corinthians 12). Here are a few creative ways that you and your church can partner with Celebrate Messiah NZ, your mission to the Jewish people,
COORDINATE A SPECIAL “JEWISH ROOTS” EVENT
Why not organise an event designed to highlight the Jewish roots of the Christian faith? One great way is to invite a missionary or special speaker from Celebrate Messiah. For example, a “Messiah in the Passover” demonstration is a wonderful way to draw the connection between the Jewish Passover and the Lord’s Supper. Or choose another Jewish holiday, such as the Feast of Trumpets, the Day of Atonement or Tabernacles, to emphasise the relationship among the Hebrew Scriptures, the life of the Church and the Great Commission.

START A PRAYER GROUP
The Great Commission certainly includes the Jewish people (Romans 1:16) and there may be a number of your fellow believers who share that burden. Find out who these believers are, and begin with a weekly group prayer time. Our staff and volunteers have plenty of knowledge about current issues, ideas about what to pray for Israel and the Jewish people.
ENCOURAGE YOUR MISSIONS COMMITTEE TO PARTNER WITH US
Perhaps you are in a position to encourage support for Jewish evangelism in your church missions focus. If so, we would be happy to meet with your leaders to discuss ways in which your church can participate in God’s plan to reach the “lost sheep of the house of Israel.”
Volunteers have undergirded the ministry of Celebrate Messiah from the beginning. Your skills may be in evangelism, administration, public speaking, media, prayer, practical service, or hospitality. Whatever your skills, there may be a place for you as a volunteer with Celebrate Messiah NZ. Talk to us about serving the Lord and Jewish people by joining our Volunteer Program.
We also offer a variety of opportunities to “put words into action,” starting with our challenging short-term mission programmes. Click here to learn more about these opportunities.
A FINAL WORD
Often the Lord launches great movements through the vision and efforts of a single person, and who knows? That person could be you!
