May 22 - 24, 2005   Liebenzell Conference Center, Schooley's Mountain, New Jersey

A portion of the attendees at the first AMC Messianic Leadership Conference, May 2005, Schooley's Mountain, NJ

Our three day Conference was focused on building healthy, Messiah centered Messianic Jewish Congregations. We began on Sunday afternoon and end with Lunch on Tuesday. About 36 attended the full Conference, with 10 more coming in all day Monday from New York & New Jersey. Among the attendees were Messianic Rabbis, Congregational Leaders, Lay Leaders, Shabbat School Leaders, Elders, Trustees, Sisterhood Leaders and Jewish outreach workers from Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Massachusetts, Texas, Kansas, Michigan, Ohio, Arizona and even a few from Yennevelt !

Our primary workshop leader was Sam Nadler,  Messianic Rabbi at 'Hope of Israel' Congregation in Charlotte, NC and founder of "Word of Messiah Ministries'. Sam was raised in a Jewish home in New York City, and after coming to faith in Messiah, held top leadership positions in Jewish outreach organizations. He has planted two Messianic Jewish Congregations, successfully developing leaders in each.

We had a variety of other workshops and speakers, including Steve Shermett, the President of the ASSOCIATION OF MESSIANIC CONGREGATIONS. We also discussed some of the current areas of controversy in our Messianic Movement, and attempted to shed some Biblical light on these. A table was available with a wide range of materials, including Discipleship Books and Manuals, Outreach Literature and Messianic Music.
