Southern Baptist Messianic Fellowship

The 2013 SBMF Encampment

Was Held At:

Beth Yeshua HaMashiach

Messianic Jewish Synagogue

Sharpstown Baptist Church Building
Houston, TX. 77074

June 7th to the 8th, 2013 

This Year's Theme: Look Up Redemption Draweth Nigh


“The grace of the L-rd Jesus Christ, and the love of G-d, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all.”    [2 Cor. 13:14   NASU]



The meetings were opened up on Friday, June 7th) in the evening on Erev Shabbat, with prayer, music worship and an Erev Shabbat teaching by Rabbi Ric Worshill (The fields are white for the harvest).  


Rabbi Jim Pratt, the Beth Yeshua HaMashiach Messianic Jewish Synagogue leader, welcomed the SBMF members and guests.  He and members of his congregation participated throughout the event.

All of our meetings this year were blessed by the music worship with the Beth Yeshua HaMashiach Messianic Jewish Synagogue Worship Team.


The Erev Shabbat Teaching was was given by Rabbi Ric Worshill.


Ric spoke about the theme found in Luke 21:25-28.  He supported his thesis with references from John 4:31-38; Matthew 9:36-38; Luke 10:2-3; Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:14-18; 2 Timothy 4:5.  His illustration was to encourage the SBMF ministry leaders and members to disciple new believers and their fellow mature believers to go outside the walls of the congregation, serving in the mission fields.


The Shabbat Teachings on Saturday, June 8th, were outstanding.  Some of the guest speakers who were scheduled to speak that day had to cancel their attendance, due to various reasons.  The L-rd sent us wonderful speakers in their place.


Rabbi Jay Fielding from Marietta, GA came and spoke about our ministries being Kingdom minded.  Brother Jay gave us a foundation to stand on in our mission to reaching the Jewish People Group and connecting with the Local Church to accomplish this task.  Rabbi Jay is the founder and manager of Beth Chaim Messianic Congregation Network in Marietta, GA.


Sister Amy Downey is the Director and Missionary of Tezdakah Ministries.  Sister Amy used examples from her ministry service to encourage the attendees to minister Yeshua to all people groups.  Sister Amy illustrated the blessings we witness and the problems we encounter.  She is an evangelist and public speaker.


North American Mission Board, National Mobilizer, Dr. Bob Burton spoke in the afternoon on Shabbat.  Brother Bob illustrated the Tabernacle in his teaching.  His illustration was about our relationship with the Living G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  He proclaimed how we need to view the Tabernacle's function in our lives, ministries and outreach.  By day or night, follow G-d's Move.


Dr. H. Bruce Stokes, The SBMF Vice-President, spoke to the Shabbat evening group.  One Body, One Mind.  Brother Bruce spoke on the Body of Christ joining together to preach the Good News to all people groups.  His teaching encouraged us to work with other Christian groups for the Kingdom purpose.

As soon as we can we will be posting some of the video of these teachings for all to see.  Some of the photographs of this event will be published on our SBMF Facebook Page Photo Gallery. Our Facebook page is located at:

All in all we had a wonderful time.  During the day on Shabbat we had an attendance of 130+ people.  The other sessions were attended by 35 to 60 people.

SBMF Business Meeting News

Brother Randall Clark presented a tribute to our dear departed brother, Jerry Young.  Brother Jerry was one of the founding fathers of the SBMF.  There will be a news page published with the text of that document.

Brother Randall Clarke presented a motion to make a web page illustrating the specialties of each of the ministers and ministries affiliated with the SBMF.  This page will have contact information for each of our members who would like others to know how to contact them for presentations like Pesach Seders, Tabernacle Illustrations, Hebraic Roots Teachings, Feast Teachings, Hebraic Eschatology and Jewish Evangelism for the Local Church.  This page will illustrate to our web page visitors, who they can have come and teach a class or classes related to topics where our members specialize.

Brother Bruce Stokes is working with Brother Michael Hertz to prepare our 501(c)(3) to move to another state where it can be monitored better.  This involves meeting the requirements of that state for corporate structure and constitutional or by-laws requirements.

New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary has the Messianic Studies course schedule up an running on-line

Trustees approve new academic division, new degrees, elect faculty

As soon as we have more information we will forward it on to you.

We will purchase two roll up signs to post at SBC Annual Meetings, State Conventions and Local Associational Meetings.  The estimated cost of each sign is about $150.  We need to be more visible at these events.

There are several other new resources that we are working on for our members and their ministries.

Shalom Y’all.   Greetings from the Southern Baptist Messianic Fellowship.

“The grace of the L-rd Jesus Christ, and the love of G-d, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all.”    [2 Cor. 13:14   NASU]


I am telling the truth in Christ, I am not lying, my conscience testifies with me in the Holy Spirit, that I have great sorrow and unceasing grief in my heart. For I could wish that I myself were accursed, separated from Christ for the sake of my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh, who are Israelites, to whom belongs the adoption as sons, and the glory and the covenants and the giving of the Law and the temple service and the promises, whose are the fathers, and from whom is the Christ according to the flesh, who is over all, G-d blessed forever. Amen. [Romans 9:1-5]  

Brethren, my heart's desire and my prayer to G-d for them is for their salvation. [Romans 10:1]


For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of G-d for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of G-d is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, "But the righteous man shall live by faith."  [Romans 1:16-17]


Do you not say, 'There are yet four months, and then comes the harvest'? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look on the fields, that they are white for harvest.  [John 4:35]


Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.  [Matthew 28:19-20]


And He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.  [Mark 16:15]


For Zion's sake I will not keep silent, And for Jerusalem's sake I will not keep quiet, Until her righteousness goes forth like brightness, And her salvation like a torch that is burning. [Isaiah 62:1]


But you, be sober in all things, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.  [2 Timothy 4:5]

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]

Shalom Alechem
