After ten years our community has revisited our organizational goals and updated them in light of all that Messiah has brought to our understanding in those years.
Just for comparison, here is our original list of goal statements!
Encourage and support maturity in all ways within the Body of Messiah, particuarily through The Life Model (copyright 1999, The Shepherd's House) process and the development of covenant relationships. (Eph. 4:10-16; 1 Cor. 13:11)
We are about Mama's Torah, the development of maturity and character that must be in place in order to correctly interpret Papa's Torah, the finer points of the Law. (Prov. 1:8b)
Provide clinical, prayerful assistance to the severely emotionally and traumatized people as resources permit (Gal. 6:2; James 5:13-16)
Provide personal life coaching for individuals and groups. (Heb 3:13, 10:23-25)
Raise up an army of worshippers with the "high praise of YAH in our mouths and a two-edged sword in our hand." (Psalm 149:6)
Provide a weekly interactive study in Torah and the Messianic Scriptures to show ourselves approved as students of the Word. (2 Tim. 2:15, 3:16-17; Acts 17:11)
Assist in the restoration of knowledge of our Hebraic Heritage and the gathering of the lost sheep of Ephraim toward the goal of restoration of both Houses of Israel to be as one in the Father's Hand. (Ezekiel 37:15-28)
