SEE BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION

Hessa Benfield

I’m Hessa and I’m 26, from North Carolina and I have 6 birds, yes 6! Crazy right??! Anywho, G-d called me into the Messianic movement in 2004, later discovering after all these years, my mother’s side has Ashkenazi (European) Jewish DNA. I serve in a lot of areas but I love Davidic dancing, worship ANNNND I REALLY have a passion for getting people together to fellowship and have a “kosher” good time with other believers. Since we are not to be “of the world” but be in it, it’s important to have that fellowship. I encourage other young adults to get on board! I have the awesome pleasure of having Tronia –> (who is the South Central Regional YMJA representative) by my side

July 29th - Havdalah Service 7:00 PM

Havdalah is such an amazing time to get together and celebrate the closing of the Sabbath. We invite all youth and young adults to partake in this celebration. We will observe the Havdalah liturgy, have a special message, have dynamic worship, and fellowship with our generation! We would love to have you. If you have any questions, please send an email below! 

August 13th - Old School Play 2:00 PM

How old school are we talking? Don’t worry – I’m talking about “OUR” old school! Back when Sega and Nintendo 64 was a thing, when Sonic the Hedgehog was a famous icon, and when Mortal Kombat made us feel impowered! We are going back to the 80’s and 90’s to enjoy a day of these games and play our hearts out! They are unlimited and available all day for $10 a person. We will meet at Bat Zion at 2:00 PM and carpool to Cidercade in North Dallas. For more questions, please feel free to contact or ask below!

August 26th - 4:30 PM Pool Party / Havdalah

We are so excited that someone has blessed us by opening their home for a pool party and Havdalah service at their house! We will enjoy a day by the pool after Shabbat service, followed by Havdalah service under the stars! Please bring a side (salad, dessert, drink, etc) to share as we will eat and fellowship! Invite your friends! Please email or contact below for any questions. Please wear *modest* swim attire! No bikinis please. Location will be given at a later date.

What is our goal?

To bring together Messianic Millennials for the sole purpose of fellowship and growth with like-minded believers. By building up the Messianic Millennials, we can now bridge a gap within our own congregation, and reach other Millennials for the kingdom of G-d.

What is our Vision?

Through the strength and unity of fellowship, we want to see the next generation grow in the Messianic faith, and be trained and prepped by current leaders to take up our positions as leaders when the time has been appointed to us. By developing relationships among other Messianic Millennials, this allows us to communicate, encourage, and build each other up in a way that our generation can relate and understand.

When do we meet?

We try our best to meet twice a month.

-One meeting is a meeting that we go out and participate in kosher events, such as dining out, going to see a movie, bowling, etc. This event may require a small amount of spending. 

-The second meeting will be revolved around budget friendly activities such as game nights, movie nights, etc. This will be available for those who may not be able to financially participate in other events. We want our meetings to be open to all millennials regardless of finances, so it is our goal to provide that opportunity.

Who are we trying to reach?

First, we are seeking to reach millennials ages 18-35 within our congregation. However, it will always be our goal to witness to other non-believer millennials wherever we go and whatever we do, so through our witness we can reach others in that age group as well.

Contact us for questions, information on upcoming events, or ideas! We would love to hear from you!

Tronia Tante

South Central Regional YMJA Representative

What’s up guys?! My name is Tronia. (: Hard to say? Well let me help you out, it’s, Trah- Nee- Uh. Easy right? I also sometimes go by Tron or Nia. I am from Fort Worth, and I attend Bat Zion in Duncanville, Texas. I’m currently a freshman in college majoring in biology at the University of Texas at Arlington. I love a wide variety of music and dance, especially if it involves either a hip hop choreography or a cultural African vibe. I have a great sense of humor and I’m very easy to talk to. I’m amazed at the opportunity of being a regional rep this year and excited to be a part of the YMJA! All of this is mind blowing but I know G-d has something wonderful in store, and I can’t wait to see y’all at the South Central retreat! I can be emailed at tronia@ymja.org
