Today marks a new direction for Dai Mission Ministries as we begin the transition from our previous stance on theological doctrines towards observance of the Aleph Torah or One Law viewpoint with a ‘Torah Observant Gentile Inclusive’ focus.
In response to the exit of various Two House groups in Colorado from the alliance, the Board of Elders voted yesterday to distance the ministry from the Two House Theology and adopt One Law as our official doctrine due to its inclusive nature and popularity among remaining members and prospective new members of the alliance. Though Two House adherents are welcome to still join and participate in events of Dai Mission Ministries it should be understood that the One Law theology will be practiced and taught from this point forward.
Along with shift of doctrinal focus will also be a shift in focus on area ministerial operations. With the exception of the Shavuot celebration in Alamosa and the Beit Lechem rebuilding effort in Grand Junction, Dai Mission Ministries now refocuses its attention and efforts away from western Colorado towards southern New Mexico for the coming Passover celebration in Roswell. After the Passover celebration we will work with allies in the Roswell area to establish the new Dai Union in Roswell and continue work on making Project Shiloh a reality in the Gilas of western New Mexico, providing the safe haven needed and envisioned by all of our people.
Concerning the recruitment of new members coming aboard the alliance the Board has ordered a refocus on bringing on individual members and forming small groups and future congregations of members to bring the messianic perspective to our Christian brethren and spread the faith to others in need. Materials are now being written for the future leaders of these groups and congregations to use in due course of fellowship and worship as well as for visiting teachers speaking at churches on Sundays.
We want to thank everyone for their continued support and prayers as well as their participation, vital to our ministry functions, as we move forward in this new direction.
May Adonai bless you and keep you; May Adonai make His face to shine upon you; May Adonai lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.
~ Benjamin F. Terry III President, Dai Mission Ministries
We pray that you will join us in this exciting new theological direction that Dai Mission Ministries is embarking upon!
With Simchat Torah passing last weekend we start the cycle of Torah and Scripture study anew for the next year.
For those also would that have never read the Scriptures or the Bible we would suggest that now is the perfect time to begin!
If it’s your first time ever to take on such an endeavor we suggest, no matter the translation you use, that as you read you keep a notepad and pen by your Bible. When something stands out to you take note of it- there is a reason it does.
If you have already read the Scriptures before we challenge you to dig deeper. Look into the various translations, look into the original texts, discover the deeper Truth within the texts, and the revelations within them.
(If you feel the Spirit move you to do so, post about what you’ve read in Scripture and what new insights you’ve gained in doing so on Facebook or Twitter with the hashtag #BibleChallenge2020.)
If you have any questions in your reading we are here to help as best we can. Look to your Deacons and your Union Elders for guidance as we move forward into next year! #BibleChallenge2020
Dai Mission Ministries has officially decided to create and sponsor small group congregations in each of our Union territories. We will be incorporating these into our ministry structure and listing them on our website soon.
Sometimes, no church, synagogue, or other religious organization in a given area is affiliated with Dai Mission Ministries, and some areas have no Messianic Jewish/Hebraic Roots presence whatsoever. Small groups answer that desperate need. These are small collections of believers and seekers — as the name “small group” suggests — that meet up wherever they can: coffee shops, restaurants, libraries, parks, public meeting places, or at the houses/living spaces of the organizers or some of the members. Some small groups even meet up at local churches, synagogues, or other congregations who may be friendly toward their theological teachings, but who may not want any official involvement with Dai Mission Ministries for one reason or another.
In general, small groups will be run by individual Deacons affiliated with Dai Mission Ministries, and each Deacon will have the freedom to run their small groups as they see fit, operating under the authority of their local Dai Mission Unions. This offers small groups much more freedom compared to organized congregations or other religious entities.
We’re still defining what Dai small groups will be and how they’ll be run. If you’re interested in running a small group and helping Dai Mission Ministries define our small group structure, contact us for more information.
