As stated in our About Us page, the idea for Dai Mission Ministries was originally an idea for Dai Mission alone: an old-style Christian mission site — a combined Messianic yeshiva (Jewish educational school, typically focusing on theological & philosophical instruction), monastery (a communal living space for religious anchorites), and house of worship for the members of the Dai — updated for modern Messianic Jewish spiritual sensibilities. The Mission would be open to mainstream Christians, Messianic Jews, and non-believing seekers in need of physical rest, spiritual rehabilitation, and temporary separation from the outside world.
Though the concept of Dai Mission from 2008 would ultimately expand into Dai Mission Ministries over the years, the idea of building Dai Mission as a Messianic Jewish monastery-and-yeshiva was never forgotten. Indeed, the Dai Mission concept is still one of Dai Mission Ministry’s long-term plans. In the near future, Dai Mission Ministries hopes to raise the funds to begin building this monastic Messianic yeshiva at a temporary site in the Gila Wilderness near Alpine, Arizona. Think of it as a “church camp” and a Messianic Jewish college/scriptural library/research institute combined.
These plans are still tentative and open to change in the future.
The construction of Dai Mission itself is now known as “Camp Shiloh” — is only “Phase One”, with the founding of the Messianic research library as the completion of Phase One and the initiation of Phase Two. The construction of a theological campus (“Project Berea”) itself is “Phase Two” of Dai Mission Ministry’s long-term plans.
Of course, we can’t do any of this without your support! If you would like to donate to or invest in the construction and equipping of Dai Mission, please contact us for more information or visit our Donations page.
