The years that Israeli youth serve in the army are life changing and challenging. Lech L’cha’s is meeting the need for intentional periods of discipleship, fellowship, and evangelism training as Israeli youth transition into and out of their military service.
Lech L’cha is a 3-month discipleship school, held twice a year, for young Israeli believers, ages 19-27 (primarily after their army service), who have set aside time to intentionally seek the Lord, grow in His word, and be discipled by other believers. They strongly encourage their graduates to participate in local outreach opportunities through the Give Ten program and abroad through the Shaliach program. Lech L’cha’s Netzor and Hetzim programs also equip pre army recruits for their transition into service by giving them the tools to serve God and face the challenges they will meet as believing soldiers.
