The Church of the Four Winds Vision:
Citizens of the Kingdom of God
(Ecclesiastics 7:8) – Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof.
The Four Winds in a Hebrew understanding represent the Four Corners of the earth in the physical realm, and the Four Winds of Heaven in the spiritual realm. Biblically, Israel (Ephraim and Judah) were scattered or sown to the four corners of the earth (Jeremiah 50:17-20), meaning the “ends of the earth” or every part of the earth. The Lord promised He would regather the harvest of this seed by causing (covenanting) the four winds of heaven to blow and collect all of Israel from the North, South, East, and West (Isaiah 41, 42, 43).
As Israel is being regathered, our mission is to impact the spiritual, social and economic well-being of the individuals, families, homes and communities of this nation that are coming back into the knowledge of their Hebrew Roots of their Christian faith, equipping them to become fully functional in society by believing in Yeshua and teaching the Torah (God’s teaching and instruction).
Our goal is to give them stability and integrity with biblical understanding, practical application and encouragement. Through the teaching and mentorship of our Rabbi, he has developed a biblical school named I.C.T.S. (International Center for Torah Studies). Our community will consist of facilities and programs that will develop the mind, will and emotions of the individuals and families that participate. We will develop a Yeshiva and community center that will consist of a computer room, arts and crafts, day care center, barber and beauty shop and game room for all ages.
Woman’s abuse recovery centers and halfway houses for both men and women will complement the center and the ministry. This will be a separate establishment with its own acreage to allow for a change of environment. We will also set up teaching facilities both on and off site for G.E.D., nursing aid courses, law enforcement regulations, fire prevention, child abuse prevention, health care and hygiene, reemployment, military recruitment, college preparation and to facilitate guest speakers with experience in each area.
The Church of the Four Winds will educate, build, disciple and send forth leaders, instructors and facilitators that will be pillars (a support system) to uplift individuals and families, to save souls by removing dysfunctions and impact their communities for the Kingdom of God (Ephesians 4:11-13) as a leadership hub.
With the aid of church, community-government officials, and leaders, we can impact the lives of people at an astounding rate. Education, consistency and financial aid combined with individual commitment and much prayer can change our low-income communities into prosperous areas of development. This type of vision will lower, if not eliminate our continuous battle with law-breakers and repetitive social problems. It will also lower family fatalities, racism and division in our communities.
