Who We Are
Messianic fellowship that functions as a Torah pursuant Life ModelTM community. Our halacha is a combination of traditional discipleship and faith formation work toward both individual and corporate personal and spiritual maturity.

For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer [is] worthy of his reward.
1 Timothy 5:18
Thou shalt not muzzle the ox when he treadeth out [the corn].
We are honored to be called and enabled to be of encouragement to the Body of Messiah and strive to present what the Ruach has been showing us here in ways that will benefit others.
As a small fellowship the cost to keep this website up to date as well as our mini site available is difficult. All 100% of our resources go toward serving people through education or support. We are all volunteer with no salary or benefits provided. Donations received for special purposes, such as support for our brothers and sisters in Kenya or in Israel, go directly to them with no percentage held back.
If you have found encouragement, help and wise counsel in these pages or through our teleconferences, will you please prayerfully consider helping us cover our costs so that we can continue to be available? The time is short. We want to be found going about our Father's business while it is yet day.
You may also contact Barb Klika at Christian Transitions

May you be blessed and strengthened in our Messiah Yeshua!
