What AMF Is All About
Asia Messianic Forum is a unique international conference of Asian Christians and Israeli Messianic Jews. Since 12 years ago, it has been going around Asian countries and AMF GOA will be the seventh conference.
Due to the pandemic, we decided to have a virtual conference this year as a preparation for the actual conference in the near future. Since this will be online, you can join the exciting event from your home!
Please join us!
Words from Organizer
We have been part of AMF network since 2011, and witnessed the power and blessings of this Forum. That's why we were happy to receive the flag in Bangkok in 2019. Since then, we had been preparing for the conference, then the pandemic broke out. So, we were forced to switch it to online as a preparation for the actual AMF in the near future.
However, this will open doors for those who could not join the "offline" because of time and finances.
So, we set the vision and purpose of this AMF as follows:
VISION FOR ASIA MESSIANIC FORUM, INDIA
1.Imparting the revelation and the importance of Israel and the Jewish people to the Indian Church.
2.Bring sound theological and biblical perspective teachings.
3.See what God is doing in various Asian AMF Nations where Israel and the Jewish people are concerned.
This AMF Includes:
* Online Worship & Praise
* Teachings from Israeli speakers
* Reports of Asian AMF Nations
* Q & A Forum
Please find the details on this web site and get connected. We welcome all of you!
VISION OF THE ORGANISER
Habakkuk 2:2 – Write down the vision.
WOW International is a ministry committed to pray for Israel, impart the revelation of God’s heart for Israel to the Church and take the message of Yeshua first to the Jew and then to the Gentile.
With the burden to take the message of Israel to the body of Christ in India and the Nations, the Lord is leading us to work towards imparting this revelation through raising watchmen (Isaiah 62:6,7), and awakening the body of Christ to align herself with Israel which will ultimately lead us to fulfil the Great Commission.
In the anticipation of our waiting for His coming, we sense readiness in the Spirit to connect the body of Christ to the understanding of messianic movement which is coming into light at the moment around the globe.
In alignment with the vision of the ministry of WOW International, the Lord laid on our hearts to hold AMF in India in 2021, which we believe is very strategic to unlock the end time harvest that many in the body of Christ are anticipating in India. We are convinced that keeping Israel in its God ordained place is the missing key to unlock the destiny/ purposes of the Lord for the Nations. The prophetic destiny of India is hanging on our choice to stand with Israel and our alignment with connecting to the roots of faith in Yeshua.
Asia Messianic Forum (a messianic conference) is a movement started in Japan and is spreading to the nations in the east bringing the body of believers (lovers of Israel) into unity and connecting them with the messianic community in Israel. It’s a fellowship of believers in Yeshua, both Jew and Gentile (Ephesians 2:15) coming together to bless Israel.
In our long-term relationship with AMF, the doors were open to hold the AMF Conference in India, and so we were waiting for the direction and the timing of the Lord. Finally in 2019, with the direction of the Lord, we took a step of faith to take up the challenge of hosting this Messianic Conference in our Nation, India, in August 2021. We pray and look on to Him for His direction and guidance and believe that the glory of the Lord shall be seen in all the efforts taken towards fulfilling the vision of the Lord.
The theme the Lord gave us for this years AMF Conference is Watchmen on the Walls of Jerusalem.
History and Vision of Asia Messianic Forum
90 Years of Prayer behind Asia Messianic Forum
In Japan, there has been a group of Christians who prayed for Israel's restoration since 90 years ago. When they started the prayer, of course there was no state of Israel, but a Japanese pastor Juji Nakada caught the vision and taught his followers to pray for Israel. Many Christians followed his teaching (it is quite a story.. see the 10-minutes video shot in 2005.) and now they get connected with Messianic Jews in Israel. They were the key people who started AMF. AMF is an answer to their decades of prayers.
Beginning of AMF
It was the suggestion of Israeli Messianic Leaders that prompted the first Asia Messianic Forum (AMF2009) in Japan in 2009. At that time, they had no connections with Asian brothers, but through this conference, they got connected with like-minded Christians in other Asian countries.
Development of AMF
As it was so successful, we decided to have the Forum every two years.organisationsThe first Forum was attended by representatives of Korea, Singapore and Thailand, along with many Christians from more than 100 Japanese Christian
The second Forum was held in 2011, in Korea and in Japan, jointly hosted by Korean Christians and Japanese Christians. This time, we made a flag of Asia Messianic Forum, and we had a flag handover ceremony in every forum after that.
The third Forum was held in Singapore in 2013, and the fourth was held in Manila, the Philippines in 2015, and the fifth was held in Hsinchu, Taiwan in 2017.
The sixth Forum was held in Bangkok, Thailand in 2019. Then the flag was handed over to representatives from Goa, India.
The Vision of One New Man (Eph 2:15)
Jewish brothers who had been lost for 2000 years are now being restored in the Body of the Messiah (the church). The purpose of this conference is to spread this news to as many Christians as possible. Two thousand years ago, Jewish brothers decided to accept us Gentile brothers (Acts 15), and now it is our turn to accept our Jewish brothers(Romans 11).
Online will Open New Doors!
We were supposed to have Goa AMF in 2021, but due to COVID pandemic, we decided to have the first online AMF as a preparation for the actual Goa AMF.
Online AMF is not a "substitute" for actual meeting, because it is much easier to join. You can join very easily from your home and witness what God is doing in Asia. If you have never attended AMF, please come and join!
We have nurtured friendship while going around countries, and the relationship brought a lot blessings, both for Israeli brothers and for Asian brothers. As the return of our Lord is coming closer, we will continue to work together to welcome back Him in Jerusalem!

Joseph Shulam was born in Sofia, Bulgaria on March 24, 1946 to a Sephardic Jewish Family. In 1948 his family immigrated to Israel just before the establishment of the State. Joseph grew up in Jerusalem. While in high school he was introduced to the New Testament and immediately identified with the person of Yeshua. Joseph’s fascination with the teaching of Yeshua eventually brought him to faith in God and the Messiah. This caused his family to reject him. As a result of that rejection he traveled to the United States and finished high school in Dasher, Georgia. After a short study in Michigan Christian College, he returned to Jerusalem and enrolled in the Hebrew University, there he studied Biblical Archaeology and Bible. From the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Joseph returned to the United States and studied New Testament and Chemistry in David Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee. There he met Marcia Saunders and after a short courtship they were married.
Upon his graduation in 1969 they immigrated to Israel and started a congregation in the Tel-Aviv area. In 1981 Joseph and the small fellowship that was started in his house established one of the first official non-profit organizations of Jewish Disciples of Yeshua in Israel – Netivyah Bible Instruction Ministry. Netivyah Bible Instruction Ministry purchased the building on Narkis Street in 1982 as the congregational home.
Joseph has lectured extensively around the world and has assisted in encouraging Disciples in countries like, Finland, Germany, Bulgaria, Russia, Ukraine, Brazil, United States, Spain, Portugal, China, Hong Kong, Egypt, Italy, France, Holland, Japan, Korea, Cyprus, Greece, Hungary, Switzerland, and of course Israel.
Joseph has two children, Barry and Danah, and two grandchildren, Joseph and Noaam. Joseph speaks seven languages, Hebrew, Bulgarian, English, Ladino (Spanish), German, Arabic, and French.
