Reason #3: Mentoring to mature spiritual leadership.

As President of the Messianic Jewish Theological Institute, I am thrilled that our program focuses on needs beyond the strictly intellectual. Our faculty and staff are passionate about fulfilling the deep needs of our students—especially our rabbinical students—to receive spiritual and practical guidance for successful leadership among Am Yisrael.

Benjamin Disraeli (1804-1881), the Jewish Prime Minister of Great Britain, put the matter this way: “The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share your riches but to reveal to him his own.”

Here is the testimony of one of our rabbinical students, Jeff L.:

I’ve been an MJTI student for over a year now, and the level of spiritual growth, maturity, and understanding I’ve experienced as a Rabbinic student and spiritual leader in just one year is astounding!  The learning environment at MJTI is friendly, challenging, and engaging, while the community climate is warm, friendly, vibrant, and spiritually invigorating.”

That is our goal at MJTI! Practical mentoring is woven into the very fabric of our relationships with students. This creates an environment where life skills, leadership, and spiritual development develop naturally within our academic Messianic Jewish context.

What could be better? To apply or learn more about our holistic, graduate-level programs to prepare men and women for Messianic Jewish service, visit us at mjti.org or contact us. We look forward to hearing from you!
