WHO IS SHALOM MACON?

A community committed to seek first the kingdom, spread the knowledge of God, and raise disciples for Messiah

WHAT MAKES SHALOM MACON UNIQUE?

Something's missing.

 

It's a common response in conversations with the people of God today. They're activley reading and studying the Bible and finding things that just dont' jive with what they've been taught all their lives. Why does the Bible say this or that? Why does God say we should do certain things that we don't do? Why does it seem like the Old Testament takes a back seat to the New? Isn't the whole Bible the Word of God? What about the Sabbath and the other biblical festivals? Shoud they matter to us? What about these difficult statments that Jesus makes all over the Gospels? Why don't we talk about these things?

 

At Shalom Macon, we do talk about them. That's what makes us unique. When we study and understand the Bible within the Jewish framework in which it was written, remarkable things happen to our relationship with God's word and more importantly, with God himself. 

 

Here we understand that the Bible simply cannot be understood in all it's beautiful depth without its foundation, the Jewish roots that undergird the faith of the followers of Jesus.  This community is all about asking the tough questions and searching out the Scriptures to find the answers and to talk about them and learn together. Those answers might be different than what you've heard before and those revelations may help you to find the very things that you've been missing all along. 

OUR CORE VALUES

Learning God's word is the highest form of worship.

It equips us to walk out the will of God in our lives. 


Connecting with people is important. 

They are a priority to God and they should matter to us.


Growing personally as disciples is necessary if we hope

to make new ones for the Kingdom. This is our calling.

OUR RABBI

I am a Jewish follower of Jesus. Having lived my formative years in Orthodox, Conservative, and Reform Jewish communities, I maintain a strong connection to Judaism, both in tradition and practice, just like the Messiah that I follow. I share those truths with all who God brings in my path.

As a strong supporter of Israel and a committed opponent of antisemitism and replacment theology, my  mission as rabbi at Shalom Macon is to educate the world about the ongoing importance of the Jewish people, the Land of Israel, and relevance of the Torah for all people of God, Jew and Gentile, one in Messiah.

 

Having served in ministry for nearly 20 years, including 10 as the leader of Shalom Macon, experience has taught me the vital importance of allowing people to come as they are, be challenged along the way, and experience the amazing journey of new perspectives as we dig deep into the well of God's Word. 

 

I have seen lives transformed and reconnected to God in profound and powerful ways through Messiainc Judaism. 

 

Jesus gave me a new perspective on Judaism and on life itself. I live to share that with others. I would love to meet you sometime soon at Shalom Macon, where disciples grow!

OUR BELIEFS

Shalom Macon is a community built on diversity. One of our fundamental beliefs is that there must be a basic level of freedom and openness to discuss the things of God. Human beings are not robots. We think. We feel. We express. We learn. It is in the learning and connecting together, even if we have different opinions at times, that we make room to grow 

 

Still a foundation is necessary. These are the basic truths upon which we build our mission and message of Messianic Judaism for All Nations..
