Our Steps Established – A New Journey

The heart of man plans his way,
but the L-RD establishes his steps.

Proverbs 16:9


Judy and I moved to the Boise area about a year and a half ago.  Life has kept us very busy since then, especially with the arrival of our 5th child in May!  But deep in our heart has always been the desire to build a healthy, vibrant, Messianic community here in the area.

With that purpose in mind, we built a website to get our name out, hoping that others would find us who were also interested in this same thing.  Through the website, we met wonderful people and are so very thankful for that!

However, we realized in September that the L-RD has really called us to something a bit different, at least for a season of our lives.

This may come as a surprise to many of you, but we are returning to the greater Christian church.  A great number of Messianic believers cringe at this idea, turned off at the idea of facing replacement theology, supercessionism, and “grace vs. law” doctrine, and these things definitely don’t excite us.  But we know without doubt that this is the path that G-d has called us to walk.  We are excited about joining with a local church, working to help grow their community, worshiping together with them, and building friendships for us and our children.

In the process, we are praying that the L-RD will open doors for us to share the joy we have found in the Torah and in discovering the Jewish roots of our faith.  While this is not our main reason for returning to church, we are hoping and praying that HaShem will open opportunities for us to share with our Christian brothers and sisters. This is truly where the heart of G-d has drawn us.

We will still be keeping the Sabbath in our home and remaining Torah observant. If you would like to join us for Torah study on a Saturday afternoon, we’d love to meet you and share this journey together!
