About Us

OUR
BEGINNING
In the 1980s Dan Juster, a leader in the burgeoning Messianic movement, was challenged by a friend regarding the restoration of the Church by five fold leadership (apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers). He began to gain a vision for the restored unity of the Body of Believers, and the foundations for restoration began to grow.
Many years later, the Tikkun America network now represents over 30 congregations and ministries and is part of the broader Tikkun Global Family.
OUR
BEGINNING
OUR
FOCUS
Because of the distinctiveness of the Messianic Jewish calling within the founding congregation, the need to develop a close-knit association of communities with shared values became a pressing motivation to create a new network rather than to join an existing one. Tikkun participates in the establishment of new Messianic congregations and cooperates with other restoration networks which pursue the unity of the Church, incorporating a deeper awareness of the Jewish roots of the faith.

WHAT WE DO
We focus on two primary objectives

Join leaders, congregations and ministries together in covenant relationships for mutual support and equipping under a five fold leadership council. We offer leaders opportunities to serve and equip beyond the local levels both domestically and internationally.

Sending forth those called to Messianic Jewish Ministry (both in the US and abroad) by providing accountability and support.

It’s important to note: wherever we minister, we seek to connect to the Christian Church and help the church to be restored to Jewish-rooted understanding of the Word.

HOW WE DO IT
