Ministering in Israel for nearly 100 years

December 6th 2023

It is with great sadness, that we share the news of the passing of our Chair, Pastor Mervyn Tilley.

 

As one of our Trustees responded, “We have lost a great General in the Lord”.

 

Mervyn not only exuded qualities of great leadership, but many Christlike attributes: Faithfulness, dedication, steadfastness, goodness, kindness and so many more.

 

From Pastor, to National Leader in the Elim Movement, and Chair of FOI for over 45 years; his reach for the Lord was unfathomable, as he impacted the lives of so many people. He was a gentle man of great distinction, and before he even spoke, you knew his quality and integrity by the way he carried himself.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow once wrote, ‘When a great man dies, for years the light he leaves behind him, lies on the paths of men’.  This will most definitely be the case withMervyn.

His focus was not only on sharing the love of Jesus, but also the Lord’scontinued love and purposes for the Jewish people. Even this last weekend, Mervyn’s heart burned with a passion to share this message, he never wavered or left people in any doubt thathis love for Israel was simply a mirror of the love of God.

 

We mourn his passing, yet we also know with certainty that yesterday Mervyn heard those words, ‘well done good and faithful servant.’ Thank you, Pastor Mervyn. We thank you too Lord, for him.

intro

FOCUS ON ISRAEL

Since the start of this ministry our heart has always been to share the love and hope of Yeshua with all people who live in the land, both practically and spiritually.

We are sensitive to the hurt and trauma caused to the Jewish people by those who have misrepresented the true message of Yeshua, and seek to correct those wrongs. We partner with native ministries in the land to achieve these purposes.

NEXT LIVE TALK

To be announced.
 

More than ever, the Church is in need of solid bible teaching that closely reflects the New Testament believers. We seek to provide that and believe you will not be disappointed.
