Y'shua's Youth: Questions Atheists Hope You Don't Ask!

Synopsis:

Title: 

Helping Our Kids to Stand in Today's Culture

Synopsis:

This workshop is designed especially for parents of young people, middle school age and up (and any other adults who may be interested). While our other sessions are for young people, this session is only for adults. Studies reveal that young people today are walking away from their faith in droves. We'll be tackling this heartbreaking trend, by exploring some postmodern messages that bombard young people from every side, and we'll be discussing how we, as parents, can help dispel our kids' confusion and prepare them to stand in the face of ever-intensifying cultural pressure.

Bio:

Bryan and Valori Cadwell live, learn, work, and enjoy life to its fullest in their country home in Wisconsin.  Bryan is a self-employed automation engineer, and Valori loves homeschooling and teaching young people public speaking skills and tools for defending their faith.


Seth and Megan Cadwell

Title: 

Children's Program

Synopsis:

Calling all 5-9 year-olds! Come join us for a series designed just for you!

We would love to have a place for children to call their own where they can encounter the Father's presence and learn about His ways, all while having fun doing it! We are not strangers to children and the way they think and learn so we would like to provide the kids at the feast with a program full of music, dancing, crafts, life-lessons, prayer time and more to help them come to know God in a deeper way and leave the feast with more desire for Him and also with a few new friends to stay in touch with!

We will follow the theme of the feast Walk in Love. We want to impart truth to our own children (and others that we have the privilege of teaching) that God's love is what changes us and helps us love others.

Bio:

We are from Oxford, WI and have been married for 6 1/2 years. We have been walking with the Lord for quite a while before being together. I (Megan) came to know the Father at the young age of 5 during nap time in my grandma's guest bedroom. 🙂 Seth has a similar story of walking with God from his young youth. We started seeking out the Hebraic roots of our faith early on in our marriage but Seth was celebrating the feasts with his family before we got together. We are so thankful for the legacy that others in the faith have set before us and we desire to do the same for the next generation.

Seth works from home primarily as a computer programmer for his Father's company and Megan is a full-time homemaker. We have four children of our own ages 5, 3 , 2 and 4 months. We also own our own coffee roasting company called Blue Key Coffee that we would love to see take off enough to become full-time. We are so passionate about babies, children, health and wellness, home educating, intentional living and most of all our faith in Yahweh and salvation through His son Yeshua.

Gary Dose

Title: 

The Sounding of the Shofar

Synopsis:

The Shofar is a biblical instrument, usually made from a ram’s horn, but sometimes from a goat, antelope or kudu. The Shofar is mentioned over 70 times in Scripture. It is used in announcing, warning, celebrations, and the coronation of kings. The ram’s horn represents the ram caught by its horns when Abraham was about to sacrifice Isaac. Likewise, it represents Yeshua, our substitute and deliverer, the Horn of our Salvation. The sounding of the shofar calls Yahweh’s people to repentance, faith and devotion.

If you would like to use your shofar as a tool of worship during this feast, it will be helpful to come to this training session! Join us as we learn about the basics of the shofar, various calls and their functions, and shofar protocol. Bring your shofars along!

Bio:

Gary and Shirley Dose have been married for 31 years and have been Torah pursuant for the last 10. They along with their children Shawna and Garrett operate a 4th generation family farm in western IA. Gary is a “jack of many trades but master of none” and is currently on a quest to return to the basics of life and how to operate a farm in a Torah friendly manner apart from the servitude of debt, GMO’s and employment. Shirley is an avid student of Torah and homemaker, gardener and Gary’s partner. She is the main hub for the small prison ministry the Dose’s operate. The Doses are part of a home fellowship group and are thankful to have local like-minded believers.

Title: 

Symbols of This Season

Synopsis:

Symbols of This Season- Our Father uses symbolism in each moed to reveal His plan for mankind and His Son's focal role in each. We will explore what a branch shelter and fruit have to do with this Feast.

Bio:

My wife Scarlet and I are from Wisconsin and have gratefully embraced the appointed times/moedim for 48 years. During this walk we are continuing to learn more of the depth and significance of the moedim. Teacher by profession, I have preferred using those skills for the past 40 years in sharing with the Body of believers. Scarlet and I also share a passion for facilitating greater growth and function within the church body through hosting interactive home fellowships for the past 15 years.


Judah Himango

Title: 

Romans for the Practical Messianic

Synopsis:

Paul's letter to Rome is perhaps the most influential letter ever written. It changed world governments, undermined evil empires, set a foundation for Western civilization. It gave hope to persecuted Jewish and Gentile believers in Rome.

But in this letter Paul makes seemingly anti-Torah statements like "You are not under law, but under grace", "you are saved by faith and not by works", "the just shall live by faith."

Is Paul saying we can disregard the Torah? Is he saying that only belief -- and not works -- matter to God?

Many interpretations of Romans start with a premise that Paul is an ex-Jew who changed his name and converted to the new religion. Sadly, this faulty premise has lead to anti-Torah interpretations and even anti-Semitism. In this talk, I start with a more Biblical premise: that Paul was writing Romans as a Torah observant, pro-Israel Messianic Jew who found Judaism's long awaited Messiah. This premise illuminates his statements on law, grace, and faith. It helps the practical Messianic believer glean the divine wisdom in this most remarkable letter.

Title: 

Yeshua's Resurrection is Historical Fact. Here's How We Know and Why It Matters.

Synopsis:

Yeshua's unexpected resurrection turned a band of hiding, defeated disciples into emboldened first-hand witnesses who proclaimed -- even in the face of persecution, torture and execution -- that Yeshua really did raise from the dead and that God has vindicated him as the Messiah.

In this talk, I examine the historical facts surrounding that fateful event 2000 years ago. I answer skeptics' objections to the gospel narratives of the resurrection. I show from evidence and history that the best explanation for that world-changing event is that Yeshua was in fact raised from the dead as a divine vindication of his messiahship, and as a sign and promise of the future resurrection of the whole world.

Bio:

I'm proud to say I've known the Lord my whole life! I'm a 2nd generation Messianic believer from Minnesota, a Messianic congregation leader and musician. I'm the husband of my love for life, Kristin, and father to 3 super cool kids: Connor (19), Kess (10), Keira (1).

I work in technology and have used my skills for God's glory: I'm the creator of Chavah Messianic Radio (messianicradio.com), which plays Messianic music from the 1970s to today, preserving the great legacy of original music from Messianic pioneers from Israel and the nations. I'm also the author of MessianicChords.com, which makes Messianic music chords and lyrics easily accessible and searchable.

Shirley and Steve Rees

Title: 

That We May All Be One in Yashua

Synopsis:

Let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us…”
This command is only possible as we live in the love that was and is Yashua. How do we become the fulfillment of His prayer as recorded in John 17, that they may be ONE as We are One? We face the truth that judgments, temptations, and justifications are the devil’s tools that steal His presence which is Joy --- the complete knowing that He is “glad to be with us!” And if we want to live in Joy as is the YHVH-given gift to us, His children, then what is it to be Salt and Light? How do Cleanliness and Purification mean more than cleaning the “outside of the cup” and if we want to grow joy in us and others then we must practice heart forgiveness and learn to walk in the power that comes from Rejoicing ALWAYS. That is being the bride who has made herself ready.
Our talks will be fun and interactive and our prayer is that they will also be heart-changing.
We believe it is vitally important to help brethren understand and live in true unity. The divisions with hostility that we come across as we travel and present greatly sadden and burden our heart, these divisions seem to be mostly about issues surrounding uniformity or conformity, which is not unity enhancing, but in our opinion cult building.
Our mission, as given by YHVH 13 years ago is to Encourage, Edify and Exhort the body. We believe we have been diligent servants in regard to this mission.

Bio:

Harpist and Scripture Story teacher, Steve and Shirley Rees of the Peregrinnatti travel from place to place helping to build "Echad" (Unity) in the body of Messiah. The name “Peregrinnatti” comes from early Celtic pilgrims or missionaries that journeyed from place to place sharing the gospel story. Like our ancient, missionary brethren we seek to honor this tradition of traveling from place to place sharing the gospel, through the art of story-teaching and harping. In some small way, we hope to revive this age-old practice of presenting scripture so people may experience the old, familiar narratives with new life, understanding, and clarity. It is our hope and prayer that you will be impacted positively by these slices of life that we share with you.

We now home-base in southern Mississippi. We are the honored parents of two outstanding sons, their beautiful wives and 4 magnificent grandchildren. Both of us were raised in Christian homes and we have no regrets over that legacy. In the late 90's we discovered the Messianic movement and in 2002 we made the final transition to pursuing the full walk of Torah. When asked we refer to ourselves as First Century Believers.

Title: 

Sat. Oct 12 - A Gift of Blood and Fire: Leviticus Then and Now

Synopsis:

Most of us grew up knowing that Yeshua died for our sins as the sacrificial Lamb of God, but how many of us understand how the sacrifices of the Tabernacle were done and what their function and meaning was to the ancient audience? In this teaching we will investigate the purpose and function of the Tabernacle and use that as the basis for understanding each of the different types of offerings.

Title: 

Mon. Oct 14 - Paralyzing Fear and the Prodigal Love of God

Synopsis:

In this teaching, we will look at the parable of the prodigal sons (yes plural) from a cultural perspective and discover that there is much more to this well-known story. When we approach the parable culturally, we will find ourselves in both of the sons and facing a Father who will do whatever is necessary to restore the relationship.

The Rehearsal desires to provide messages that encourage and exhort the body to a greater relationship with our Heavenly Father.  While we believe that all of the selected speakers also share this goal, we do realize that not everyone has the same understanding of the scriptures.  The messages may not reflect the exact beliefs held by the board but may provide an opportunity for study and introspection. We ask that grace and mercy rule our conversations and questions while discussing various topics and ideas that may or may not agree with your understanding.
