- Adult Learning: Ki MiTziyon
- 12-21 Learning & Engagement: Black Fire on White Fire
- FFOZ Kids: Spirit and Truth
Join us for a spiritual recharge as we prepare for the next big phase in this great mission. “Ki MiTziyon” means “For out of Zion” in the prophecy that says, “For out of Zion shall go forth the Torah” (Isaiah 2:3).
At this year’s FFOZ National Conference, we will be taking an overview of the whole mission, from the giving of the Torah at Sinai to the future Messianic Era when the Torah goes forth from Zion. More than just talking about it, we will be unveiling a plan to make it happen through our new Torah Club program.
The conference will divide into three tracks: one for adults, one for youth, and one for children. Adults will follow the “Ki MiTziyon” track to follow the story of the giving of the Torah from Sinai to the Messianic Era. Students in the 12-21 track (ages 12 to 21) will study under the title “Black Fire on White Fire,” a brief course on the spiritual significance of the Torah as the revelation of God and practical godliness in our lives. This learning opportunity, tailored specifically for young students, promises serious study and a spiritually positive learning experience, coupled with youth activities like bowling night and a fund-raiser carnival. FFOZ Kids (3- to 11-year-olds) will learn lessons about Shavu'ot and the giving of the Torah at Sinai during select adult sessions. After the conference, you will have the option to stay over the weekend and celebrate Shabbat and Shavu'ot with the Messianic community of Beth Immanuel.
Shabbat-Shavu'ot services and meals are optional (meal ticket required) and not part of the three-day conference. Space is extremely tight so we encourage early registration..
And many peoples shall come, and say: “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob, that he may teach us his ways and that we may walk in his paths.” For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. (Isaiah 2:3)
We already know that Yeshua did not come to do away with the Torah. We already know that, on the Festival of Shavu'ot, God gave the Torah to Israel at Mount Sinai, and we know that on the Festival of Shavu'ot, he poured out his Spirit on the disciples in Jerusalem. But what’s the real significance behind all of that?
This year at the annual First Fruits of Zion Conference, learn about the new Torah Club initiative and discover the spiritual mission behind the giving of the Torah, its implications for Israel, the nations, and ultimately the whole world. Recapture your passion to bring the good news out from Zion and to all nations
12-21 LEARNING & ENGAGEMENT
Black Fire on White Fire
When God gave the Torah to the Jewish people, he wrote it in black fire upon white fire. That is how we describe the Torah’s supernatural descent from heaven into the hands of human beings. The Torah provides practical instructions for living, but it also burns like a supernatural flame from heaven that we can use to light a spiritual fire on earth. Discover how the giving of the Torah brings a revelation of the divine into our daily lives.
Spirit and Truth
FFOZ Kids classes will focus on the story of the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai and the outpouring of the Spirit at Shavu'ot in a fun and easy-to-grasp way. This track will be full of learning, activity, games, and songs. Children divide into three age groups, each with their own unique program.
