We are set up under our sending church's authority so our ministry is strong in Baptist doctrine and practice! We are not a parachurch organization.
Since 1993, the mission of OTMI is for churches of like faith to catch the vision of reaching Jewish people in their area with the Gospel. Once they are saved, we seek to help Jewish believers become part of the church.
I have known Philip and Debra for twenty years. As their former pastor I have personally witnessed their love for the Lord Jesus Christ and the local church. As independent Baptists their hearts' desire is to teach local churches how to love Jews to Jesus and integrate them into the local churches. I also appreciate their ministry to students as they pass the burden of Jewish evangelism to them. When you have this ministry into your church, they will bless your people.
He deals with those matters which educate, enlighten, inspire and lift the Gentile membership of the church to an understanding far surpassing what they've ever known before. Only then can a Gentile christian or church know how to deal with and handle the privilege and responsibility given to the church.
Most of the Jewish ministries I know about are seperate from the local church as a ministry interdenominationally. This man is operating as a part of an Independent Baptist Church and is interested in getting Jews saved and involved in local independent Baptist churches.
Phil Sawilowsky, has contributed to our understanding of Bible Prophecy that is relevant today.
Applying himself very diligently, he absorbed the teaching of God's Word as he built a foundation for what is now a very successful ministry - The Olive Tree Ministry. Because of his background as a Russian Jew, Phil has an insight into the Jewish culture and the religion of Judaism possessed by few young men in the ministry today. This enables and equips him to be very effective in Jewish evangelism.
The course is 3 hours long. OTMI will supply a notebook and tracts and your members bring their Bible and a burden for Jewish souls. This class works great just before a Mission Conference or a Saturday before Bro. Philip is scheduled to speak. Attendance at a Reform synagogue can also be scheduled (by Bro. Phil) the Friday night before the class but that is optional.
