Overview:

Tikkun International is a Messianic Jewish umbrella organization for an apostolic network of leaders, congregations and ministries in covenantal relationship for mutual accountability, support and equipping to extend the Kingdom of God in America, Israel, and throughout the world.

The Tikkun International Mission:

The Tikkun International mission is to effectively fulfill Yeshua's (Jesus') Great Commission through an apostolic network that restores the synergy of five-fold leadership to provide effective accountability and oversight to leaders, ministries and congregations through covenant relationships and mutual support.

Tikkun International fulfills its mission by:

  1. Equipping, educating and sending forth those called to Messianic Jewish ministry from the Diaspora.
  2. Fundraising, charitable aide and support for aliyah to Israel and for indigenous international ministries.
  3. Empowering a network of Messianic Jewish Congregations (Tikkun America) through biblical governance and partnerships in education, training, national conferences, and leadership development.
  4. Exhorting and educating the Church regarding her Jewish roots and responsibilities to the Jewish people.
  5. Partnering with Church leaders for the full restoration of Israel and the Church.

How We Do It:

Tikkun International is an apostolic network made up of an association of congregations (Tikkun America) and international ministries led by an apostolic team of five fold senior leaders. Benefits and responsibilities of associating with the Tikkun network include:

Equipping: Tikkun International trains leaders and congregation members through visits to congregations, conferences, training institutes, and more. We also equip leaders through phone and email communication.

Encouragement: Tikkun International leaders are available to encourage leaders during times of pressure and spiritual attacks. This includes counseling and advice as needed.

Oversight: Tikkun International provides oversight through its emissaries. As a part of this oversight, we participate in local eldership deliberations on major decisions. Such oversight takes place through the submission of reports, through various modes of communication, and occasionally through on-site visits.

Accountability: When leaders are accountable for their ministry and personal lives, congregants can live in safety. Areas of accountability include biblical teaching, financial management, program implementation, and the general quality of congregational leadership. In addition, Tikkun International provides a court of appeal for congregation members who believe that a serious wrong or error has occurred that was not rightly settled in their appeal to their congregational elders. When congregations join Tikkun International, their leaders demonstrate that they are open to correction and are willing to be accountable to a Tikkun International court of appeal.

Apostolic and Prophetic Alignment: We believe that Tikkun International's form and practice of Government is on a healthy trajectory toward the New Covenant model in the Scriptures by its recognizing all five fold ministries, especially apostles and prophets. The embracing of apostolic ministry is one key to spiritual fruitfulness, as the blessings of God are released when communities align under biblical leadership order.

Kingdom Expansion: Associating with an apostolic network connects us to Kingdom expansion along new frontiers. Those called to lead in a "five fold" network are committed to Kingdom expansion and, by being part of an apostolic network of congregations, are able to support this expansion in substantial ways. We see this especially modeled by Paul. In a time when transportation was primitive by today's standards, Paul was limited in the frequency of his visits to congregations, so he wrote letters, sent representatives, and depended upon information conveyed by other travelers. He called for his congregations to support his mission to new frontiers as a key part of Kingdom advance. He wrote letters containing advice and correction even while he was involved in new development work. Today, we are involved in such expansion in other nations, but the frontier that especially inspires us is our work in Israel. Membership in Tikkun International connects leaders and congregations to relational government, and to Kingdom expansion that is rooted in the Land of Israel.
