Within Metro Jewish Resources, we realize, if one desires to go fast, go alone. But if one desires to go far, one must have a team. The MJR growing team possesses diverse talents, and strengths working together to pioneer the calling of MJR. Mutual support, shared goals, cooperation, and encouragement seek to provide a kingdom synergy, to effectively formulate and implement the goals and objectives of MJR. We are thankful to the Lord for bringing individuals in sync with MJR's growing spheres of influence.

What Is An MJRM Worker?
MJRM worker is an MJR missionary working cross denominationally. Individuals as these are not under the Missionary program of the Assemblies of God, but following a period of service, training, and preparation they have the opportunity to become Missionary Associates or Nationally Appointed Missionaries in Jewish Ministry for the Assemblies of God. Often, however, MJRM workers can access avenues of opportunity that Missionary Associates with the Assemblies God cannot.
