Is an eighteen-year-old Messianic kid ready for the challenges to faith that college will bring? Are our high school graduates able to articulate or defend their Messianic convictions? Have they experienced a positive peer environment with other Messianic kids?

We have a huge dream, and we want you to share it with us

Imagine a program for Messianic high school graduates to spend time learning, experiencing, and growing in Messianic Jewish studies prior to college, career, and marriage. That’s the FFOZ 12-21 Gap Year Program. It’s a crash-course in Messianic Judaism, Biblical worldview, the Land of Israel, and discipleship to Yeshua all rolled into one intense, academic program of spiritual growth.

Learning will take place both in the US and in Israel, yet with the primary focus of students experiencing Messianic Judaism in the Land. The objective is to prepare Messianic kids to become the pillars, leaders, and teachers of tomorrow’s Messianic Jewish community.

To make it happen, we need donors, benefactors, and financial supporters who will step forward to shoulder the enormous costs involved in creating such a program. We need to purchase student housing, create curriculum, pay teachers’ and administrators’ salaries, subsidize student expenses, and provide scholarships. This ambitious program will only happen if God raises up generous donors to underwrite the expenses. Help us make this dream come true.
