Despite all the obstacles, the Messianic movement and Return to Zion Congregation grew, and Oasis grew alongside, turning from an information leaflet into a serious media platform. More and more news and unique materials were published online on the Return to Zion website.
The Oasis-Newspaper moved into virtual media cyberspace, with our open YouTube channel ranking first among our media efforts. Today, not only material and seminars of Messianic teachers are being published, but also live video streaming from the Oasis Media studio in Haifa, and live broadcasts of Return to Zion congregational meetings. Currently the Oasis-Media-TV YouTube channel has several thousand subscribers and about one and a half million views. The benefit of modern media platforms (for example, You Tube, Facebook, and Twitter) is the two-way communication it enables. Our subscribers are not passive viewers, but active partakers in the discussions: their questions are raised in the live broadcasts, and they find answers within our internet sites.
The year 2017 was a year of development and distribution. Having gained a lot of useful and unique materials in the field of Messianic ministry, the emphasis has been shifting from production, which is constantly increasing, to expanding the audience. This year, broadcasting on the social media network Facebook was launched, and a YouTube English channel was started.
Oasis-Media is no longer a small, local congregational project, but an international faith project that will grow and improve with assistance and additional financial resources. Please prayerfully consider supporting the educational and broadcasting projects of Return to Zion Ministry.
