Each year, Dai Mission Ministries hosts or participates in several special communal events, conferences, and meetings. Many of these events are planned in advance, and all conferences and communal events are open to the public.
Conferences are formal ministry-wide events featuring fellowship, feasting, worship, prayer, doctrinal discourses, and sermons or special messages. These are local events hosted simultaneously at each Union that last at least two hours, but may last up to two days. (Only the Simchat Torah Conference is held at a specific Union site.) All conferences are open to the public, unless otherwise specified.
Communal Events are special formal services that coincide with the High Holy Days and are hosted by specific Unions that last the entire day. All communal events are open to the public, unless otherwise specified.
Other special communal events may arise throughout the year as well. These optional events are good opportunities to fellowship with other Dai members.
These are the scheduled upcoming events for the Gregorian year 2020 A.D. (5780/5781 A.M.):
Dai Mission Ministries will be hosting a Messianic conference about the Book of Genesis at Emet ha Torah in Odessa, Texas. All are welcome to attend and study the first book of the Torah with us!
Food, music, dancing, and midrash on Genesis/Bereshit will all be part of the event, and a mikvah or baptismal service will be held for spiritual cleansing and renewal. Stay tuned to this page for updates and changes as time draws closer to the appointed date: Friday, January 10th, 2020 AD / 13 Tevet, 5780 AM at 6:00 – 10:00 PM CST. Begin your preparations to attend now!
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.
