                                                                                                Jeremiah 3:15

Welcome to Set Apart Ministries mini site specializing in the growth and stability of Messianic Fellowships!
 In these pages we want to provide encouragement and direction to those who are coming together to walk in a Torah pursuant lifestyle. 

A Torah Pursuant Relational Maturity Community Model

  • Prayerful leadership development
  •  Develop the skills necessary to care for "sheople"
  •  Organizational structure and goals
  •  FAQs
  •  Teleconferences focused on leadership development

We Believe that a strong Messianic fellowship begins with solid relationship between the individual and our Elohim, Who is Himself, relational, or echad in Hebrew.

Unless YHWH builds a house it will be in vain, so we advise that it is best for there to be a clear calling as a basis for starting any fellowship group.

Our personal desire to do so is, alone, not enough!

A Messianic fellowship needs to encourage individual faith for its members and yet also is dependent on the integrity and committment of those individuals.

See our series of "Community Teaching Moments" on our main site (
These brief 1-2 page commentaries address common situations fellowship groups face and outline how people at different maturity levels might be expected to respond.
Here is one example on the process of Identifying and Meeting a Community Need..
You will find them on the right side in the What's New column! They are meant to be conversation starters, and will be discussed as part of the soon coming Leadership Training teleconference course. Email for further info!

Our Definition of Messianic Community
A multi-generational group of interdependent, like-minded people with a clear, stable identity based in YHWH, mutually defined and articulated as in a growing organism, with structure, authority, and boundaries; generally based in recognition of attained maturity, and the shared goal of set-apart living in daily interaction;

an interdependent network of covenant relationships based in Echad with Messiah Yeshua.

We think that maturity is necessary in order to correctly interpret and apply the Scriptures.Proverbs 1:9 speaks to this issue: In order to understand Papa's Torah we must not forget the laws of our Mother!

Check out a brief video on our main site home page that describes how we incorporate this understanding in our "set apart" community. Maybe it will make sense to you in your community as well!

In recent weeks, I have also prepared a slideshow to help shepherd leaders identify the issues involved with various kinds of difficult people, as well as some information on how to wisely handle such issues.

One of the first questions people usually have is about finding the right study materials Some groups are started by an individual who is equipped to teach independently, and others by people who have learned enough to know they want more, but not enough to lead by themselves.

Our experience is that most people want to start out with a series of teachings on topics of interest.
This is normal and probably the best choice when you are in the phase of finding people of like mind to eventually form a group.

Once a group has begun to take shape, perhaps 4 or 5 people agreeing to regular participation, it may be time to consider moving in the direction of building a foundation of knowledge of Torah. We understand this to be a critical aspect of forming a strong group that will be able to give a reason for the hope that is within them and to help each person establish their lifestyle in solid Torah

We believe that it is of crucial importance to listen in prayer to the leading of the Ruach/Holy Spirit as to what type of study is best at the time for each group.   As an example, we offer a listing of the topics we have covered over the last 10 years in our home community.  We do NOT think that this is a "blueprint" for exactly what each group should do, but rather offer it as a guideline and sample....   more


Study Guide for Those New to Torah Understanding!

This is the study guide we have developed for our local community use but it provides links to many scholarly and helpful books, documents and videos to help in the study of the Hebraic roots of our faith.


If you have found wise counsel, support and encouragement in these pages, will you prayerfully consider helping us cover the cost to keep this material available?

For the Scripture says, "YOU SHALL NOT MUZZLE THE OX WHILE HE IS THRESHING," and "The laborer is worthy of his wages."
