His wife, Messianic Dance Leader, Lynn serves with her husband at Beth Chaim. Rabbi Kevin was radically saved at age 30 and has never looked back. He was a member of the contemporary Messianic music group 'Nagila' from 1985 until 2002. Their CD, "Valley of Vision" has been played all over the world and Kevin has ministered at music festivals in Russia and South America, where thousands came to know their Jewish Messiah.

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. [Matt 28:19-20 KJV]

Baruch Ha'Shem Yeshua (Praise the Name of Jesus)


G-d has blessed us and answered our prayers.


Baruch Ha'Shem Yeshua (Praise the Name of Jesus)


I am pleased, blessed and elated to advise you that our prayers have been answered. 


The North American Mission Board, notified us that they are sponsoring the Southern Baptist Messianic Fellowship to have a booth on the exhibit floor of the SBC Annual Meeting in Indianapolis, IN.  Baruch Ha'Shem Yeshua.


We would like to thank all of our brothers and sisters at the North American Mission Board who have worked so hard to help us in the mission fields.  We are grateful to sister Carmon Keith and brothers Mark Snowden, Aslam Masih, Mark Hobafcovich.  Please lift these brothers and this sister up in your prayers and praise to G-d the Father and our Savior Yeshua Ha'Mashiach.

Now this I say, he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. [2 Corinthians 9:6]

Now He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness; you will be enriched in everything for all liberality, which through us is producing thanksgiving to God. [2 Corinthians 9:10-11]

For we being many are one bread, and one body : for we are all partakers of that one bread. [1 Corinthians 10:17 KJV]

We give thanks to our be'Mashiach Yeshua (our Savior Jesus) for the chessed (lovingkindness) of ha'kadoshim (the saints).  Baruch Ha'Shem Yeshua.


For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.  For the body is not one member, but many. [1 Cor 12:13-14 KJV]


Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. [Matt 28:19-20 KJV]


But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. [Acts 1:8  KJV]

We are looking forward to seeing you at the 2008 SBMF Annual Meetings.  Unless we hear the Shofar sound and a call from above, "Come up here".  Then we look forward to seeing you up there.

Baruch Ha'bah B'Shem Adonai

Blessed is He who comes in the name of the L-rd.

Come Yeshua come.


Prayer Requests From Your President: Ric Worshill


Please continue to pray for your Executive Board as we work with the North American Mission Board, to make your SBMF more resourceful to you in your ministries.  


Again please continue to pray for our booth project this year at the SBC Annual Meeting in Indianapolis, IN.  Please pray that the L-rd supplies what is needed to make this booth successful. 


We would like to let our SBC Brothers and Sisters know who we are and how we can help them in this race we run together, leading the nations and our Jewish kinsman to Yeshua.  To this date several SBC ministries and Churches have used the services of or partnered with groups outside the SBC.  We need to be more visible to our SBC Brothers and Sisters.  Without the support of NAMB this can not be accomplished.  At the SBC Annual Meeting in Nashville the Credentials Committee voted to turn our being recognized by SBC over to NAMB for evaluation.  Your leadership has been working hard to illustrate the function, purpose and need for our people group lifestyle evangelism to NAMB and SBC.  We are working to build powerful partnerships with local Churches and local SBC associations all over the USA.  These partnerships will work to bring the Good News of Yeshua to the Jewish people in the USA.  Please pray as this corporate function of the Body is essential, to work the good work of G-d's economy and build up the saints to build up the saints. 


As I said last year.  Please pray, there is lots of work to do.  To accomplishment the goal of G-d’s Economy and to Gain His Testimony through the Body (ha'kadoshim - the saints), we must build up the saints in one accord, founded on His Word and we need help from our brothers and sisters in SBC to accomplish this task.


Also please pray for the ministries listed below, as they fight the good fight to lead others to the Truth.

Shema Ysrael Adonai Elohaunoo, Adonai Echad 

Hear Israel the L-rd our G-d, the L-rd is One


To Him who loves us and released us from our sins by His blood — and He has made us to be a kingdom, priests to His God and Father —  to Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen. BEHOLD, HE IS COMING WITH THE CLOUDS, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the earth will mourn over Him. So it is to be. Amen.  "I am the Alpha and the Omega," says the Lord God, " who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty." [Rev 1:5-8 NASU]


I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like the sound of a trumpet, saying, " Write in a book what you see, and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus and to Smyrna and to Pergamum and to Thyatira and to Sardis and to Philadelphia and to Laodicea."  Then I turned to see the voice that was speaking with me. And having turned I saw   [Rev 1:10-12  NASU]


Remember it is about position.  John heard, he turned, and he saw.  To truly see you need to turn to Yeshua.  I heard - I turned - I saw - I found Salvation in Yeshua.  


The L-rd is knocking at the door of your heart.  Will you let him in?


Baruch Shem K'vod Malchooto lay'olam vay'ed

Bless His Glorious Name Whose Kingdom is Forever and ever


Have you told someone about Yeshua?  Have you brought Light into a dark life by the Word of Life, Who is the Light of the world.


The L-rd bless you, and watch over you; The L-rd make His face shine on you, and be gracious to you;  The L-rd lift up His countenance on you, and give you peace.   [Numbers 6:24-26]
