Funding Priorities

These needs are bigger than any of us can imagine meeting. God will provide in the way that honors His name as sovereign and sufficient for all our needs.

Do what you can joyfully as you bless Israel!

“For if the Gentiles have shared in the Jews’ spiritual blessings, they owe it to the Jews to share with them their material blessings.” Romans 15:27b

Your 5 loaves and 2 fish may multiply into a story that will never be forgotten by those in Israel to whom your gift helped to reveal the Messiah. Thank you for any help you can give our ministry partners with the following funding priorities.

Ministry Funds

Our ministry partners work very hard in the uphill challenge to make Yeshua’s (Jesus’) love known through their loving, sacrificial, and even dangerous work. They do what they can with what they have. They are requesting more funds so that they can do greater things that make their witness shine brighter and speak louder in their communities.

Salary/Support Needs

Some of our ministry partners in Israel serve with limited income. Israel is very expensive to live in, with an 18% tax rate. In some cases, there is need for some workers to go from part-time to full-time for the sake of keeping up with the growth of the ministry.

Vehicles (Vans/Trucks/Cars)

Some of our ministry partners have expressed the need for replacing or purchasing vehicles and for the funds to maintain and keep fuel in them.

Funds Towards Purchases of Buildings for Worship and Ministry

Many of our Messianic congregations have expressed the need for purchasing a place of worship and ministry or for help with paying off the loan on their building. The norm for congregational size is under 100. Raising the 10’s of thousands or even more it costs to purchase is far out of reach for them without outside help.

Current Projects

Here are some current ministries being provided by Harvest of Israel.  The list is not inclusive of all we are working on.

Rapid Response Team

A Rapid-Response team has been assembled that would enable a team of ten men with skills in various critical areas to be available to travel to Israel on 24-hour notice. 20 men have answered the call to serve as members of the Rapid Response Team. Additional team members are needed. If you would like to join this team and have a valid passport and can travel internationally on short notice please contact Don Owen at dnowen@bellsouth.net.

Economic/Business Development

Efforts are underway to find expert Christian leaders in business and economics to help our ministry partner, Israel First Fruits, as coaches, mentors and investors. Israel First Fruits has a vision “to see the Body of Messiah in Israel flourish and prosper, fulfilling its mandate to disciple Israeli society and the nations through God-honoring professionals, thriving ‘kingdom businesses, and economic transformation.” (Quote from http://israelfirstfruits.org/about-us/)

Harvest of Israel Events

With the addition of our Directors of Development, Harvest of Israel is seeking to multiply the number of ministry partners who will pray, fund, supply, and go to Israel to encourage believers in the Land. It is urgent to bless Israel through Messianic Jews and other believers in Israel. Please join us in blessing Israel.  Invite us to share the vision with your church or Christian organization.  Time is short.

Shipping Priority Supply Needs

We are currently preparing  to ship our 44th container of priority supply needs that have been requested by our ministry partners in Israel. See our list of supply needs.

Local Congregational Support

Efforts are underway to provide material, financial, and loving support to local Messianic congregations throughout the nation of Israel (like Harvest of Asher and Ha Maayan). With this support, they are better able to address the countless physical, economic, emergency, and spiritual needs of their cities’ and country in the name of Yeshua (Jesus).

Pro Life Ministry

Efforts are underway to support and encourage those Israeli believers who are serving in Israel’s pro-life ministry Be’ad Chaim.

Mass Feeding Ministry

Ministries are underway to support Messianic congregations throughout Israel to provide food to people across the country in time of crisis. This involves the collection of food preparation equipment, as well as funds to provide for food to be purchased and prepared in an emergency.

Jewish Roots Education

There is a great need for educating and discipling the largely Gentile Church in the great covenants of the Bible and the importance of Israel and her return to the land. Harvest of Israel conducts seminars and conferences on the importance of Israel and why the Church should support her and the Messianic believers of the Land. Our educational efforts also include a rich supply of resources on these topics and topics related to the Jewish roots of Christianity for self or group study on our website.

Encouraging, providing resources for, and engaging the Church in intercessory prayer for Israel is a key component in this pillar of education.

Humanitarian Support to Israel

Harvest of Israel encourages intercessory prayer for Israel and provides tangible support through financial contributions and the shipment of needed supplies to Israel – especially to the Messianic and Arab Christian communities of Israel. These efforts involve partnerships with churches, Messianic Jewish congregations and Christian ministries in the United States and Israel that are of like-mind and heart. (As God guides, partnerships may form with like-minded followers of Messiah in other nations who long to bless Israel.)

Paul spoke of the Gentile Churches of his day supporting the Jewish believers…

“For if the Gentiles have been partakers of their spiritual things, their duty is also to minister to them in material things.” Romans 15:27

Harvest of Israel Tours

Harvest of Israel offers two types of tours to the land of the Bible under the name of Harvest of Israel Tours. Proceeds from these tours help fund the ministry of Harvest of Israel.

Harvest of Israel – Explore & Encourage Tours include approximately a week of sightseeing and around a week of spending time blessing one of our ministry partners.

Harvest of Israel – Sight-Seeing Tours focus on sight-seeing and bringing God’s word to life in the Bible Land. They are offered for various lengths of time.

Who we are...

We are an Evangelical Gentile Christian ministry that uses 3 key pillars upon which we build Harvest of Israel:

Humanitarian Support to Israel

First, we send large containers of humanitarian aid through the Joseph Project Warehouse ministry in Beit Shemesh.

Harvest of Israel Tours

Second, we annually lead multiple tour groups to visit Israel. (www.harvestofisraeltours.com)

Jewish Roots Education

And third, our goal is to teach the largely Gentile church in America the Jewish roots of our Christian faith.
