Kehilah 2020 is a 10-year initiative focusing on the future of Messianic Jewish congregations, and mobilizing young leaders, congregational members, and supporters to help make it happen.
Kehilah is the Hebrew word for “congregation” or “assembly.” Kehilah 2020–or K20 for short–was launched in 2010 to develop a ten-year plan culminating in the year 2020. 2020 also refers to 20:20 vision, focusing on future leadership. In recent years a wide spectrum of resources has been developed to encourage, educate, and train young leaders. K20 brings all these resources to bear on the challenge of creating a thriving Messianic Jewish future, with a four-fold emphasis:
- Identifying, recruiting, and helping equip new congregational leaders.
- Initiating new congregations wherever needed.
- Providing placement and career tracking for new leaders in new or existing congregations.
- Developing financial resources to support the training and placement of leaders, and the start-up of new congregation
