Emet Ministries was birthed by the Lord in August 2006, and was founded and is facilitated by Manfred Nochomowitz who comes from an Orthodox Jewish background, together with his wife Isit.
Manfred and Isit both came to faith in Yeshua in 1994 and in 1995 God spoke to them through the book of Ezekiel to go to the Jewish people and proclaim the gospel to them. After becoming a believer, the Lord began equipping Manfred and Isit as, by the grace of God, they progressed from being Cell Leaders to becoming Shepherds and then ultimately Associate Pastors at Hatfield Christian Church, a large and prominent church in Pretoria, South Africa.
Their focus is now Jewish ministries and the building of God's Kingdom, and they are committed to fulfilling God's calling on their lives.
Emet Ministries is an Evangelistic Ministry and though it is dedicated to proclaiming the Gospel to the Jews first according to God’s word, Emet Ministries is committed to proclaiming the Gospel to all people.
Part of the calling of Emet Ministries is also to proclaim the truth of God's end-time purposes for the Jewish people and Israel.
As well as having regular prayer meetings and teachings focusing on the Jewish people and Israel, a Messianic Shabbat service is also held once a month in Pretoria to which all are welcome.
Emet Ministries operates in Pretoria, Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban, and Emet Ministries partners with churches and Messianic ministries in South Africa, Israel and America.
Manfred and Isit are the South African directors of Chosen People Ministries, an international network of Messianic ministries whose international headquarters is in New York, and through Chosen People Ministries, Emet Ministries connects with Messianic ministries in 16 countries around the world.
Manfred and Isit have ministered in South Africa, Israel, America, Ukraine, Argentina, Australia and Zimbabwe.
