Special Events:

Ami Yisrael hosts a number of special events each year including special speakers and seminars.  Some of the speakers we've hosted in the past include: Eddie Chumney (Hebraic Heritage Ministries), Bill Cloud (Shoreshim Ministry), Joseph Good (Hatikva Ministries), Frank Houtz (Dry Bones Restoration Company), Boaz Michael (First Fruits of Zion), Lee Miller (House of David School of Biblical Studies), Avi ben Mordechai,  Brad Scott (Wild Branch Ministry), Dean Wheelock (Hebrew Roots), and Rico Cortes (Wisdom in Torah Ministry).

Please Note - We do not necessarily agree with everything our guest speakers teach and believe,  but we do believe they have something to offer the Body of Believers.  It is the responsibility of the listener to determine for himself what he accepts as truth.


Our fellowship invites you to celebrate Shavuot with us!

The Ami Yisrael Fellowship will be observing Shavuot (Pentecost, the Feast of Weeks) this year at the Camp Shiloh Retreat near Pittsburg, Texas.  We have a number of campsites and RV spots so that others can join with us in a weekend of fellowship and praise as we honor the Creator of Joseph Goodall things who gave us His festivals for a shadow of how He plans to bring His people into His Kingdom.

Joseph Good (Hatikva Ministries) and his family will be joining us and will be speaking throughout the weekend.

Shavuot  is the 2nd of the three "pilgrimage" festivals listed in the scripture.  According to tradition, Shavuot is the day that God gave the Israelites the "Ten Words", or what we is commonly referred to as the Ten Commandments.  It's also the day God officially "took" Israel as His bride.  We, if we walk in His ways, are a part of that bride.

Throughout the weekend, we will enjoy:

  • insightful messages
  • an interactive Torah Study covering  parsha "Bamidbar" - Numbers 1:1-4:20
  • various Bible studies and midrashim
  • praise through song and dance
  • delicious group meals
  • activities for both young and old - see the Schedule of Events
  • plenty of time for fellowship and relaxation

Camping and RV spots are available Friday after 12:00 noon. Camping ImageIf you intend to stay all day on Shavuot, you will need to secure housing through that evening.

We will officially kick-off the weekend at 6:00 PM on Friday with a grilled chicken cook-out followed by an evening of Hebraic dance and warm fellowship."  The Sabbath's activities center around our fellowship's normal Sabbath services.  Later that evening we will enjoy a family movie . . . including popcorn!  On Shavuot the women can have a Camp Mealrelaxing morning as the men cook and serve brunch!  We'll then round out the afternoon with praise thru song and dance along with a message focused on a Shavuot theme.
