THREE STEPS OF DISCIPLESHIP BY THE MESSIAH:
“…..Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” – Matthew 4:19 (NKJV)
1. MODELING THE MESSIAH – “Follow me” – We make a commitment to be discipled.
2. MENTORED BY MESSIAH – “I will make you” – Yeshua makes a commitment to disciple us.
3. MOLDED INTO A MAKER – “fishers of men” – We become committed to disciple others.
SEVEN PRINCIPLES OF LEADERSHIP AT SIMCHAT YESHUA:
We promote these seven principles in ministry. Each one of these seven “C’s” infuses a LOVE FOR PEOPLE into the heart and mindset of a our leaders:
1. COVERING – We are committed to the spiritual authority that God places over our lives, as we establish a healthy spiritual covering for God’s people.
2. CULTURE – We cultivate a loving environment where people can encounter the heart of God and follow in the footsteps of the Messiah, as well as the footsteps of our forefathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
3. CONNECTION – We endeavor to bridge the gaps between different groups, cultures and generations, as we cultivate the culture of the Messiah, for Jews and Gentiles alike.
4. COMMUNITY – We believe in creating an healthy environment and atmosphere where people can feel a sense of belonging and can express their shared values and ideas in a family environment, that in Hebrew we call “Mishpocha.”
5. CLARITY – We impart 20/20 vision to those we are leading within the Messianic Movement with a clear pathway for spiritual growth and advancement of God’s Kingdom.
6. CHARACTER – We desire to develop distinguishable traits, characteristics and qualities that express a godly integrity and models the love of the Messiah in the lives of those who are being discipled to follow Yeshua.
7. CAPACITY – We continually assess our leadership ability of our leadership to increase and maximize our spiritual influence and impact in the lives we are called to lead and minister to.
If we follow the Leadership Model of the Messiah, we will become clear-minded in our objective. We will be sincere in our deepest expression of love and concern for the people that God daily brings into our lives. We lead with the ability that God provides, and speak as His divine oracles or mouthpiece. As Messiah’s LEADERSHIP, we learn to become managers of the Father’s divine grace, and good administrators and communicators of our God-given gifts.
