Raising up the Next Generation

Raising up the next generation of believers and leaders is a major focus for us here at Home of Jesus the King Church, and as such, we have seen more and more parents come to church along with their children, recognizing the change that the Word of God makes in their lives and also how it sets them on the way that God has prepared for them. In Proverbs 22:6 we read that we are to “direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.”

As a community of Arab-Israeli believers, we are called to be bridge builders in Israel and to be agents of reconciliation through the love of Jesus. We are to raise up a new generation that is free of hatred and the old mindsets that have been cultivated in Israeli society. This new generation is to be rooted and grounded in the faith, not swayed by popular opinion or by the secular media.

The unity and revival we seek here in Israel will be carried forth by the new generation. We are raising these young ones up in the knowledge and salvation of Christ, so that they would become the future leaders of the church, actively working towards reconciliation and spreading the news of the Gospel. Enjoy the video below of little Mila, who is a great example of one of our young ones with a passionate heart for God. What a blessing!
