Rod Woodruff: Worship Leader

Rod Woodruff of Oye Israel Ministry has also been an important part of Messiah West Coast for 11 years. In 2008, Brad Scott asked Rod to help lead worship at Messiah West Coast. Together Brad and Rod have been a part of Messiah West Coast from the very beginning.

Rod started leading worship in 2000 and by 2003 had released his first CD “End of the Exile.” He now had 4 CDs published and is currently working on his 5th project with Brad Scott. Rod believes that when we worship…we grow closer to the Messiah. “When we come together in times of worship, lives are changed, ” Rod says. 

Rod will be unable to make it to MWC 2020 because of his family’s needs at this time.

Brad Scott: Teacher/Speaker

Brad Scott of WildBranch Ministry was an integral part of Messiah West Cost for 11 years. Brad traveled the world teaching, but always had a heart for youth. 

The WildBranch focus is to restore the ways of our Creator to His people by teaching the Old and New Testaments from the language and culture of the people who penned them. The New Testament is crammed full of idioms, phrases, and concepts known to the observant Jew (Yehudim) living in the time of Yeshua’s ministry, but unfamiliar to modern readers. The Scriptures must be read through the eyes and minds of the culture in which it was written.

This will be a tough year, without Brad again. But we strive to uphold the principles he held dear and teach our youth to love their Creator with everything within them

Camper Registration

We’re excited to see you at Messiah West Coast this year! The cost is $415.00 per camper for early registration and $440.00 for registrations after May 1st

INTRODUCING THIS YEAR: Fundraisers!!! We have 2 ideas, but the sky’s the limit, for anyone who is entrepreneurial at heart! Our ideas include: 
(#1) T-shirt sales (2 designs available – “Faith Over Fear” or “United We Stand; Divided We Fall”), and 
(#2) Requesting individual sponsorships (from business owners you know, perhaps, or from people who attend your local fellowship). This can be done easily with a simple Zoom meeting. Scripts will be provided! This is a good stretching exercise to get out of your comfort zone, but also to tell others what MWC is all about! 
Prizes are available for campers who raise MORE than they need for their own registration and can help support another camper to attend. Fundraisers will be rolled out to registered campers by March 31st.
