Avi and Tzofiya are the founders of the ministries of
"As You Go" and are ordained through Tikkun International as
Ministers of the Gospel with Tikkun America by the Tikkun America Apostolic
Team. Together they serve the Tikkun America network of congregations as
five-fold prophetic gift ministers, primarily imparting the Kingdom of G-d
through teaching, revelation, activation and demonstration of the Prophetic,
Healing and Deliverance Ministries.
Avi was raised in the Christian church but was drawn into relationship with
the G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob through a supernatural, open-eyed vision
and infilling of the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) in 1987. The "call" to
full-time ministry, which came while attending a pentecostal campmeeting in
the Fall of 1988, came to fruition in 2013.
He served in a non-denominational, charismatic, congregation in Charlotte,
North Carolina for 5 years while growing his construction company. In 1992,
however, the Ruach shifted his direction by revealing a 12 acre property and
home named "Shiloh" some 40 minutes north near Denver, North Carolina. Here,
he served in a local Presbyterian Church (PCA) and was set in as a Deacon in
2001 and, in 2004, called to Eldership.
Tzofiya was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Jewish parents. By the time
that Avi met and married his "Perfect for me!" wife in 2007, Tzofiya had
already experienced a two decade long history of prophetic and deliverance
ministry service in both the church and Messianic worlds. Currently, Tzofiya
ministers prophetically giving direction and insight personally, locally,
cross-congregationally, and apostolically. As a prophetic teacher, she
imparts by revelation which is often followed by personal prophetic ministry
that helps bring breakthrough and revival to the Body of Messiah! It was
through her invitation to a Messianic Jewish Synagogue that Avi's eyes were
opened to the Jewish roots of his faith and together the venue through which
the call to full-time ministry would eventually be walked out. Together they
form a bridge between the Jewish and Gentile bodies of Messiah to bring
revival, restoration and mobilization.
The Ruach Ha'Kodesh led their family of then 21 (they are the parents of ten
children and are expecting their 9th grandchild early 2016) to the
Washington, DC area in 2010. There they served under Rabbi Ralph Finley,
congregational leader of Ahavat Yeshua Messianic Congregation. For the next
four years, G-d knit the family's heart to the local community serving as
Shamashim (deacons), founded the ministries of "As You Go", and
became established as Tikkun Ministries Emissaries, under the apostolic
oversight our Shaliach Dan Juster of Tikkun Ministries International.
