In addition to coordinating international group mission trips and pastor conferences, one of my responsibilities included the administration of several Israel Tours. I was blessed to be able to join one of these tours and soak up The Land with all its Biblical richness.
As I began seeking the Lord’s direction on naming His business, I wanted to use the word “connect.” However, so many other ministries were using this term in their organizational titles. Having just returned from Israel, I decided to see if there was a comparable word in Hebrew. I found out that the Hebrew word “kesher” means “connection” or “to connect” in English. Ah-ha! Kesher International Missions – “to connect to international missions.” This worked on so many levels:
- Connecting individuals to global outreach through short-term mission trips
- Connecting churches and ministries to international partnerships and projects
- Connecting churches to other churches to have a greater mission impact
