We are a group of believers in Yeshua the Messiah from a variety of backgrounds that come together to worship in Spirit and in truth, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and the promised Messiah, His Son Yeshua from Nazareth. We offer discipleship classes using the ``Navigators`` and other related materials.

Because of Him, for Him and for Him are all things. Let the glory be his for centuries. Amen.
GROW IN HIS WORD
All Scripture is inspired by God, and useful to teach, to reprove, to correct, to instruct in righteousness, so that the man of God may be perfect, fully prepared for every good work.
(2 Timothy 3: 16-17)
Therefore go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to observe all the things that I have commanded you. And I am with you every day, until the end of the world. Amen.
(Matthew 28: 19-20)
Yossi was born into a traditional Jewish home on the East Coast of the United States. At a young age he became involved in the New Age movement experimenting in a variety of practices including Tarot reading, horoscopes, palm reading and yoga. After serving in the IDF (Israel Defense Forces) in the mid 1980’s, he left Israel to travel. In Northern California, he stumbled upon a inter-tribal Native American cult and spent the next 16 years practicing sorcery and witchcraft, unbeknownst to him at the time that that was what he was involved in.
It was during this time, that he saw a vision of Jesus and shortly thereafter began to read the New Testament for the first time. Over the course of 8 years, he saw three visions of Jesus, read the bible cover to cover a few times and spent extended times crying on his knees for the truth. In 2001 the Lord finally broke through and Yossi accepted the Lord into his heart but it took another 12 years until he learned what it meant to be a disciple.
How Calvary Fellowship Haifa Was Started
Sometimes shortly after returning to Israel in 2009, Yossi met a Calvary Chapel Pastor and was discipled using the ‘Navigators’ discipleship material. A few years ago, the Senior Pastor of Calvary Chapel Tel Aviv asked Yossi if he would consider starting a bible study in Haifa. Eventually he accepted the invitation and he and 2 others started meeting. Since that time the bible study has attracted the attention of people from different parts of Haifa who were excited to get verse by verse teaching in English. The bible study has recently grown into a church plant.
