B'nai Israel Messianic Assembly was founded by Earl and Lenora Walters. The parents of four children, they have been actively involved in the Messianic movement for many years. Their desire to contribute to the restoration of the body of Messiah has led to their participation in numerous organizations, including the Messianic Covenant Community, the Alliance of Redeemed Israel, and Tallit Ministries.
Our congregation is led by our Elders: Earl Walters, Yaakov ben Yosef, Michael McCann, Robbie Walters, and Stan Randall. The Elders look after the spiritual well being of the congregation and guide the direction of B'nai Israel Messianic Assembly. All significant decisions at B'nai are made with the consent of our Elders. As the congregational leader, Earl Walters also serves in the office of Shepherd (Pastor) for BIMA.
