Our Mission

To Israel

Word of Messiah Ministries exists to help Jewish people understand that Yeshua (Jesus) is the Messiah, and to be a long-term witness of the Good News in Jewish communities through the planting of Messianic congregations. As we bring the Good News of Yeshua “to the Jew first, and equally to the Gentile,” it is our aim to see each new believer discipled in their faith and established in a healthy congregation. We plant Messianic congregations with the belief that the most effective long-term testimony of the Good News is a healthy, local congregation. Looking to Yeshua, Word of Messiah Ministries desires to develop strong Messianic leaders and congregations, who in turn will establish new Messianic congregations in Jewish communities worldwide.

On Behalf of Israel

Word of Messiah also works alongside the greater Body of Messiah, bringing the burden of God’s heart for the lost sheep of the house of Israel to the hearts of people in churches. As we are invited to speak at church services near and far, we seek to edify and equip our fellow believers to move forward on the calling of all believers to point Jewish people to their Messiah. (Romans 11:11) Through sound biblical teaching, we desire to see communities of believers everywhere testifying of the Jewishness of our faith, and the faithfulness of God to His people.

Our Story

After coming to faith in Yeshua on January 10, 1972, God gave Sam Nadler a great burden to share Messiah with other Jewish people. Sam was soon with Jews for Jesus, travelling around the country doing outreach with an evangelistic music group called the “Liberated Wailing Wall.” In 1975, he and his wife, Miriam, established the New York City branch of Jews for Jesus.

As they saw many Jewish people coming to faith in Yeshua, Sam and Miriam began to see that the Great Commission is not just about making decisions, but making disciples. Many Jewish people who were coming to faith in Yeshua during this time were not being discipled in a way that would help represent Yeshua as God’s faithfulness to Israel, and were losing their testimony back to their own people.

In light of this, Sam and Miriam began to focus on planting Messianic congregations, places where Jewish believers are discipled in light of their Jewish identity, proclaiming God’s faithfulness to the Jewish people and to all people in Yeshua. Later, as US Northeast Regional Director and then President of Chosen People Ministries, Sam began to implement this model of missions, focusing on outreach through Messianic congregation planting worldwide. Through this season of ministry, he traveled throughout Israel, Germany, South America, Canada, and the United States planting Messianic congregations and was privileged to witness revival among Jewish people in the former Soviet Union. In 1996, Sam and Miriam established Word of Messiah Ministries in order to train and support Messianic leaders and their wives in their vital work around the world, as well as equip the Body of Messiah in Jewish ministry.
