Rev. Howard and Melissa Taylor - Church Planters

Howard and Melissa Taylor joined with Oakdale Baptist as church planters in November, 2013. Beth Emet Messianic Synagogue serves as a bridge between Jewish and Christian peoples, sharing the love of Jesus to their non-believing Jewish brethren. Yeshua (Jesus’ Hebrew name) is worshiped in distinctly Jewish ways to draw attention to non-believing Jews, demonstrating that they can be Jewish and believe in Jesus without having to cease being Jews. Beth Emet consists of both Jews and Gentiles who desire to share and worship Jesus with their Jewish brethren. We are excited to have Howard and Melissa as a part of Oakdale Baptist Church’s first ever church planting opportunity!
