Mottel Baleston, Director 

Messengers of the New Covenant shares Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) within the Jewish Community of New Jersey & beyond. Our activities have included outreach ministries, literature distribution, Bible Studies, the discipling of Jewish believers,  Messianic Fellowship gatherings and combating anti-Semitism. Mottel Baleston is a Jewish believer in Messiah and the Director. He's often a guest speaker in churches, sharing pulpit sermons, messages & seminars to help Christians appreciate the Jewish roots of their faith. His presentations also allow Jewish friends to consider the claims of Jesus as Messiah in a way they can relate to.

We believe that the Jewish Torah (Scriptures) promised a Messiah for both Jews and Gentiles. Yeshua was born as the fulfillment of those Bible promises. No Synagogue, Church or Temple can provide forgiveness of sin, only through personal faith in Messiah Yeshua/Jesus and His atonement do we experience true peace with God. We have personally seen many of our own Jewish people embrace Messiah and go on to maturity.

For many years Messengers had a weekly Friday evening Messianic Jewish Fellowship in our Montclair NJ center. Those times resulted in many of our Jewish people coming to Messiah and growing in their faith. We then brought the fellowship group part of our ministry together with Beth Messiah Messianic Congregation of Livingston NJ, where Mottel Baleston took on a  second role and served as  Messianic Rabbi / Pastor from 1997 thru 2001. Those four years were a time of great activity that saw the congregation double in size to become able to call a full time leader.  In addition to his other ministries, Mottel continued to serve there as Associate Messianic Rabbi, Teaching Elder, Worship Team Leader, Hebrew Class Instructor, Home Group Leader and several other roles from 2001 thru 2014. People came to faith and many were discipled. With a change there we stepped away from involvement in 2014 and that time is remembered fondly.

In recent years we have shifted toward greater emphasis on outreach in the Metro region and being available to teach in various churches & congregations. We share seminars and messages on the topics seen on our webpage 'Teaching DVD's'.  We also conduct Messianic Jewish Passover Seders and Holiday gatherings, and since 2018 have conducted Northwest Jersey Messianic Fellowships, collaborating with other ministries to hold holiday gatherings for Hanukkah, Purim, Passover, Rosh HaShanah and Sukkot in the Morris County area. Spring 2020 and Covid-19 moved some things online, and with some new lighting in our office, Mottel has taught Bible in online live video in ways unseen last year. Fall 2020 brought new live gatherings & outreach & travel as Covid decreased in the Northeast for a time. During Spring 2021 we participated in outreach, discipleship and taught live in several churches, while in Summer 2021 we were super busy with the Shoshanah Messianic Bible School in upstate New York, teaching a total of 20 class sessions. Now 2022 brings new discipleship opportunities among Jewish believers, more meetings opening up live, Passover Seders, additional online live sessions as well as our YouTube Bible teaching channel reaching 3,600 subscribers!
