LJCF Missions

Local church. Global impact.

Our own mission is to reach out from our little corner in La Jolla to the four corners of the world. To help people in need. To help people know the gospel. To show people the heart of Jesus. Please take a look at these missions that we support as a church family. Each one has contact info so you can reach out and get involved.

Messianic Congregation, Tel Aviv

MISSION: Reaching native-born Israelis with the Good News of Yeshua. Founders Ari and Shira Sorko-Ram knew there were no Spirit-Filled, Hebrew-Speaking only congregations in Israel. They knew that in order to attract Israelis to the Gospel, they would need to return to the language of the people. Tiferet Yeshua was birthed, allowing the Gospel to go forth every week in the language of the Hebrew prophets.

Unveil Lies. Reveal Truth.

MISSION: To expose the lies that young women and incarcerated women believe about themselves, reveal the truth of who they are and who they are created to be, and equip them to fight the lies through live events and written material. Girls and women are confronted with destructive lies about their identity on a daily basis. Unveiling helps them flourish in their true identity.
