M.T.O.I. Global Missions
M.T.O.I. is dedicated to serving YHWH as He brings the Body of Messiah together worldwide. Although we are based in the United States, M.T.O.I. is an international umbrella providing coverage for like-minded congregations regardless of location. But what does this really mean?
For starters, it means that we want to get "boots on the ground" where congregations are organically developing. The usual pattern is one believer interacting with M.T.O.I. by participating in our weekly online Torah studies and by watching the services of Beth Shalom Messianic Congregation streamed live through the internet. Over time, others in the surrounding area or community hear about it, or discover other like-minded believers through our virtual congregation map. The small home based group grows. It is at this point that we want to bring someone in - a missionary, so to speak - to help make sure that this new congregation is aware of all the resources that M.T.O.I. has to offer.
M.T.O.I. provides support by making available its teachings - free of charge - to any that are interested. Affiliate congregations have a support structure and Scriptural model that they can follow. Leadership meetings are held to address any questions, concerns, or needs of that particular congregation. Counsel and assistance is provided through M.T.O.I., ensuring a safe structure and environment for all like-minded believers and transparency and consistency on the part of the leadership. M.T.O.I. works hard to find a balance between protecting the Body and allowing space for the Body.
Secondly, it means that we need people that feel a call to be a missionary. M.T.O.I. is looking for dedicated believers, willing to undergo training and discipleship, in order to be the "eyes and ears" of M.T.O.I. As much as Rabbi Berkson would love to personally travel and meet each and every one of the individuals and congregations that grows, we recognize that he can only be in one place at one time. And that's why we are praying for Yahweh to bring the right people to us. Do you love to travel? Meet new people? Understand living a life of Torah observance? And are blessed with excellent communication skills and discernment? If you answered "yes" to each of these questions, we would love to talk with you!
United, we can work together to clear up some of the mass confusion that is out there and serve one another worldwide!
