Senior Pastor Russell Beeson, Associate Pastor Dale Terry, and Associate Minister Menorah Terry, leaders of Shema Messianic Community.
After 10 years in the church, Russ had an encounter with God that resulted in his spiritual birth and pursuit to know the Savior of the world. As Russ questioned why the Old Testament had been done away with and why we as Christians did not keep the Sabbaths and festivals that God had commanded His children to keep, he discovered that God had not changed! Russ then focused on imitating Yeshua and pursuing the Kingdom of God, not just in words, but in power! Russ is married to his beautiful wife, Erica, and together they have 4 children.
Since childhood Dale has been passionate about the spiritual realm. Raised as a catholic, in his early adulthood he was caught up in the occult and became familiar with the dark side. God sought him out, saved and delivered him and called him to serve in His Kingdom. Dale has been walking in Torah for twenty years and ministers as seer/ prophet to bring salvation, healing and deliverance to others. He is married to Menorah; together they have four children and 14 grandchildren.
After walking with the Lord for 27 years, God changed her name to reflect her purpose in the Kingdom. Menorah’s passion is for people to experience the perfect love of their Creator so that they might become transformed into Messiah’s likeness and live out their unique purpose in His Kingdom. Out of her personal devotion to Yeshua and in dependence on Holy Spirit, Menorah serves in ministries of inner healing, mentoring and teaching. Dale is her beloved husband and ministry partner; together they have four children and 14 grandchildren.
