Tom and Mary love to help folks! They are compassionate intercessors and support the local body in many ways. They frequently practice their gifts for hospitality by opening their home for youth meetings and the congregational chavurah. Mary often receives visions from the L-rd that encourage, build up the body, and are effective in evangelism.
Aaron is a big city kid from Denver and Earlene is a country girl from Missouri. Together they form the duo known as "The Riches." They met while serving at a church retreat in 2009 and were married in 2011. Aaron and Earlene fell in love with the Messianic community in 2015 and have been growing and learning so much under the leadership at Or Chaim.
They are both gifted in hospitality and love to host get togethers at their home. They love to seek out gaps in the ministry and fill them as best possible while still pursuing a devotion to relationship with the L-rd.
