Engage is Ebenezer's international young adults programme and vision for now and the future. Through this we plan to reach out to young Christians all over the world, offering them a variety of programmes and opportunities to serve the Jewish people in various ways. Our aim, over time, is to broaden the scope of the programme and we plan to establish contact points in each nation through the appointment of 'Engage' co-ordinators who will work with, and alongside, our National Coordinators.
It is exciting to watch how the Lord is mobilising this generation and in this we have a great responsibility. Since 2009 we have provided young adult tours to Israel! It gives them first-hand experience as they pray, worship together, carry out acts of service and through teaching gain a deeper understanding of God's plans and purposes for Israel, the Jewish people and the Church.
The Engage programme is an essential step of preparation in releasing the new generation of leaders to assume the mantle of responsibility in their countries
As we see when we read in 1 Kings 20:13-15, the Lord desires to raise up young leaders
'...Thus says the LORD: "Have you seen all this great multitude? Behold, I will deliver it into your hand today, and you shall know that I am the LORD.'" So Ahab said, "By whom?" And he said, "Thus says the LORD: 'By the young leaders of the provinces.'" Then he said, "Who will set the battle in order?" And he answered, "You." Then he mustered the young leaders of the provinces…' (NKJV).
Ebenezer wants to invest spiritually and educationally in the young leaders, so the ministry is working to develop an extended and variety of leadership training programmes which will include the opportunity for short-term service and training.
