We Live

We live a Messiah centered lifestyle in the context of a believing community, returning to the ancient paths spoken of by the prophets and our Messiah Yeshua of Nazareth.

We Teach

Our website materials are our best description of who we are as well as being our primary outreach and teaching tool.

As an equipping ministry, we teach about:

  • What we have learned about maturing in Messiah.
  • Both  individual and corporate aspects of relationship and community.
  • Restoration from emotional traumas, small and great.
  • Shepherding and leadership skills.
  • The Place of Accountability in Community.

 

New articles or presentations are featured on the right side column. Our articles include PowerPoint presentations as well as documents and are listed alphabetically on the Articles page as well as by topic in the drop down menus. Audio files & listings are on a separate page.

Who We Are

       

Local Community Group & Equipping Ministry
We are not a church & we are not a synagogue.

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.


There is a difference between being saved and being a disciple. Some of us are saved, "yet so as through fire." We are grateful to God for saving us from sin, but we are of no use to Him in so far as our actual life is concerned We are not spiritual disciples. Our Lord's last command was not, "Go and save men," but, "Go,...and make disciples:

We cannot make disciples unless we are disciples ourselves.  When a man comes to Jesus it is not sin that is in the way, but self realization, pride, his claim to himself. "I must realize myself, I must be educated and trained I must do those things that will help me to develop myself.  Self-realization is anti-Christian. All this is vigorous paganism, it is not Christianity. Jesus Christ's attitude is always that of anti self-realization. His purpose is not the development of man at all; His purpose is to make men exactly like Himself, and the characteristic of the Son of God is not self-realization but self-expenditure. Spiritual selfishness must go--am I prepared for it to go?  If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself : that is "let him give up his right to himself in Me.    

Oswald Chambers, from The Place of Help, 1935, Discovery House.

After watching our "Be Ye Set Apart" video above, one leader had some comments we appreciated, and a very good question:

How do You Keep the People Who Need What You Offer?


If you are in the area and would like to visit with us for Shabbat gatherings or another time, please contact us by email or telephone to make arrangements.

 Set Apart Ministries is Preparing Messiah's Bride!

Sign up here for 4-5 updates each year from the S.A.M. community about what we are learning and teaching about the process by which our Abba is making ready those who seek His Face, honor His commands and guard His Name!

Our specialty interest is in relationship development which we believe IS the work of the Kingdom.  We focus on the development of maturity in many ways, utilizing both Papa's and Mama's Torah. Though we are His children, surely He desires us to mature unto Messiah as we prepare to welcome Him!

We respect your email privacy

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].

Deuteronomy 25:4

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

if you would like to arrange personal coaching by phone or Skype. This, too, will help us maintain our services offered freely for all here.
