Koom House of Worship
Arise and Engage
We are a Messianic Jewish house of worship that encounters God through the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Our mission is to advance the Kingdom in our local community and to unify the Body of Messiah. We seek to bring people into direct encounters with God by providing events and venues of outreach and ministry by and through the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
Koom is run by a plurality of leadership and is functioning as a sodality (mission driven) community. We are a connecting and networking community expressed on the individual and local level. In this season, we see that the Gentile church is hungry to connect to the deeper roots of their faith. God is turning hearts to build greater unity in His body so that there is infrastructure to receive the harvest of revival.
Judah and Hallel Schell
Judah was raised by his Jewish mother to always live a kingdom-focused lifestyle filled with worship, dance, prophetic ministry, and deliverance ministry. He has served as a worship leader in multiple congregations and small group settings, has a unique and powerful ministry in prophetic dance, and is gifted in pastoral leadership and counsel. Hallel has walked with the LORD ever since she was two, and grew up with a deep love for Israel. She has a PhD in Music Theory (Univ. of Oregon), has also been a worship leader and/or musical director in many congregations ever since she was twelve (in multiple denominational streams, including a reformed synagogue for a seven year period), and serves as an intercessory coordinator for Koom and for As You Go Ministries (Avi and Tzofiya Rogers). Both Judah and Hallel helped plant Beth Tikkun, served as a shamasheem couple, as worship leaders together, and have been the primary deliverance and prophetic ministry assistants to As You Go Ministries. They, along with their four young children, worship passionately before the LORD, they have a heart to minister to those who are hurt or burnt out in ministry, and they long to see the Body of Messiah come into the fullness of unity with each other and with G-d.

Her passion is to educate, train, inspire and equip people to personify the person of Messiah Yeshua; to pursue His presence; and to possess His power; whereby, they will know Him, who they are in Him and fulfill their God-ordained destiny.

We believe as Messianic believers and Gentile believers become one,the world will know that Yeshua is the Messiah. Israel will know that Yeshua is the Messiah, birthing the nation of Israel to usher the return of Yeshua.
