The IAMCS is a subsidiary of the Messianic Jewish Alliance of America (MJAA). The MJAA, founded in 1915, is the largest association of Messianic Jews and non-Jewish believers in Yeshua (Jesus) in the world. Its purpose is threefold:
• To testify to the large and growing number of Jewish people who believe that Yeshua (Hebrew for Jesus) is the promised Jewish Messiah and Savior of the world;
• To bring together Jews and non-Jews who have a shared vision for Jewish revival; and
• Most importantly, to introduce our Jewish brothers and sisters to the Jewish Messiah Yeshua.
The Young Messianic Jewish Alliance (YMJA) is a sister organization of the IMACS. The YMJA is a vibrant Messianic organization focused on young people across the nation. We exist to challenge Messianic young people to passionately follow our Messiah. Operating under the auspices of the Messianic Jewish Alliance of America (MJAA), the YMJA is a nationally-recognized organization with deep roots in the early days of this end-time Jewish revival. The YMJA was formed in 1967 and focused primarily on college-age groups, bringing Jewish believers together for teaching and fellowship in accord with a Messianic vision. Many of these participants are current leaders in Messianic congregations and ministries. In the mid-1970’s, the YMJA was the single greatest force the L-rd used to bring about modern Messianic Judaism. From its inception, the YMJA has played a vital role in the spiritual, social, and cultural identity of our movement. Today, the YMJA maintains the vision and hasexpanded to serve young people across the nation. Through our Teen, College & Career-Age, and Singles ministries, the YMJA is being used as an instrument by the L-rd to unite Messianic believers around the world!
