“The Jubilee Institute derives it’s name from a beautiful rhythm established by God to benefit his people. Every 50 years they were to celebrate the year of Jubilee, which included the restitution of property, freedom for the captives and a simpler life for an entire year denoting one’s dependence on God for the provisions of life.
Thus, it was a festival that promised and symbolized deliverance, liberty, and restoration. It is described in Isa. 61:1-4 as a great era of God’s favor.
When Jesus began his ministry, He quoted Isa. 61 and said that the Year of Jubilee was now fulfilled in Him. (Luke 4:16-20). We now live in a season known as the ‘year of God’s favor’!
The Jubilee Institute represents a ministry designed to come alongside the less fortunate and bring the message of hope through Jesus Christ and provide tangible ways for them to improve their lives.”
The Jubilee Institute – “What”
… seeks to address the needs of the immigrant populations in our community. It looks to do this in a Biblical and holistic way through 3 unique pillars. These pillars together provide an answer to the individual’s physical, spiritual, and immigration needs.
The foundation of the Jubilee Institute is Pillar 1 which focuses on relationships. We do this through partnering with Hispanic churches in the area. Together we work to meet the needs in their churches and communities as well as our joint community.
Equipping leaders and pastors to lead in their churches is at the center of Pillar 2. Twice a month theological training is offered using curriculum developed over years of foreign mission trips. Leaders are trained to better fulfill their calling in their local church.
The 3rd Pillar addresses the very real legal assistance that many immigrants need. Immigrant Hope offers discounted legal aid that speaks truth into the complex immigration laws of the United States.
All three of these pillars have a goal of advancing the Kingdom of God in our community. Whether it is partnering with, teaching, or providing legal aid, our aim is always to share the Gospel and bring people closer to God.
