2019 was a very important year for Root Source.
- We instituted a Board of Advisors, comprised of friends who identify with our Mission Statement.
- We raised close to 30% of our budget from small donors amongst our subscribers.
- We held four Root Source LIVE sessions in Texas, attracting over 300 old and new friends of Root Source. See this minute long clip taken by our good friend Dr. Sue Yang showing “How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!” (Psalms 133:1)
- We initiated and participated in the Jerusalem-based Pro-Christian Organizations Coalition (“Among Friends”).
- We participated in numerous Jewish-Christian events, including the Washington DC CUFI Summit, the One New Man seminar in Denver, and the Jerusalem Prayer Breakfasts in Jerusalem and in San Antonio.
- We taught Torah in home study groups in Texas and Israel.
- We sponsored the Nations’ Ninth of Av events in Jerusalem and worldwide (www.9-av.com).
- We served as one of eight case studies for the Oral Roberts University Senior Paper project.
- We published three books: Jubilee NOW! Final Edition; The LIST: Persecution of Jews by Christians Throughout History; and 40 Days of Repentance: A Companion Guide to The LIST
With all of this success behind us and the infrastructure in place, we are excited to see what 2020 will bring!
Plans for 2020 include:
- We will execute our plan to transform from a for-profit corporation to a not-for-profit organization.
- We will totally revamp our website.
- We will retain a Christian Outreach Director, a Fundraising Consultant, and a Jewish Teachers and Content Coordinator.
- We will bless Israeli Jewish teachers with over $10,000.
- We will sponsor the Nations’ Ninth of Av virtual trip to Israel.
- We will initiate the Bridgebuilders list of the top activists in Christian-Jewish Engagement.
- We will continue to sponsor Root Source Live in Dallas, and perhaps expand to other areas.
- We will publish two or three books with Root Source Press.
