About Ministry Support
"Let him who receives instruction in the word [of God] share all good things with his teacher [contributing to his support]."
Galatians 6:6 (AMP)
Yeshua Community is an outreach ministry of Mansion Builders International (MBI) which is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit ministry that is supported by the prayers and tax deductible donations of its friends and partners. Our goal is to provide Torah-based discipleship and ministry to the body of Messiah at large.
Mansion Builders International receives financial support according to the biblical principle that God's people are to provide for the physical needs of ordained elders who teach and minister the Gospel.
"Let the elders who perform the duties of their office well be considered doubly worthy of honor [and of adequate financial support], especially those who labor faithfully in preaching and teaching. For the Scripture says, 'You shall not muzzle an ox when it is treading out the grain,' and again, 'The laborer is worthy of his hire.'" (1Timothy 5:17-18 AMP)
(Also see Deuteronomy 24:15; 25:4; Leviticus 19:13; Luke 10:7)
The foundation of this principle comes from God's Torah which says, "Be careful that you do not forsake the Levite as long as you live in your land" (Deut. 12:19). The Wycliffe Bible Commentary explains this principle as "The one who is taught in the word shares his material goods with the one who teaches him. In this way he participates in the work of the Lord. This is the divine plan." The concept is about bearing one another's burdens in a way that allows the supporter to participate in the work of the ministry. This fulfills the Law of God and produces eternal rewards for both (2 Cor. 11:9; 2 Thess. 3:8).
If you have been blessed and strengthened by our ministry outreach, then we invite you to “participate in the work of the Lord” with us by supporting us in fulfilling the ministry that Yeshua has given us to be wise stewards.
