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.

The date of the upcoming 2020 elections will be announced after the Council of Elders meeting on 13 September, 2019 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
We are sad to report that John Schrock has announced his intentions to resign as President of Dai Mission Ministries so he can focus more on his local ministry, Beit Menorah / The Lighthouse Church in Farmington. We are sorry to see him go, but we understand his concerns and we wish him all the best!
Whenever you wish to return, John, the door is always open. We’ll keep a light on for you!
