Congregation Mishkan David
 Senior Rabbi and Pastor 

Aaron Evans ~ Rabbi

Rabbi Aaron is the ro’eh or pastor of Congregation Mishkan David. Born into a Jewish home and raised Messianic, he has had a depth of experience interacting with the range of Jewish and church denominations.  He has been ordained since 1997 and has been active in ministry and intensive study of Judaism and Church history.  His ministry experience ranges from prison, hospital, and elder care chaplaincies, congregational leadership, small group facilitation, spiritual direction and mentoring, street ministry to the homeless, and seminar/workshop presentations.

Rabbi Aaron’s burning passion is assisting Believers to find, experience, and nurture a passionate, vital, and growing love for Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ).  This is what Israel was called out of the world to do.  Rabbi Aaron believes that a great part of this relationship is modeling and teaching that our lives lived in holiness and righteousness can deeply impact the world around us for Yeshua.  Rabbi’s heart’s desire is to be a servant of God that helps make ready the Bride of Messiah to present her to the Bridegroom pure and without spot or blemish.

Michael Filkins ~ Rabbi of Congregational Development
 
An ordained Messianic Rabbi, Mike, was born and raised in a Christian family. He graduated from the 4-year Bible/Missions course at Prairie Bible Institute in Three Hills, Alberta, Canada in 1975, and continues to work towards his “AUG” degree as he whimsically likes to refer to it. (Approved Unto God – 2 Tim 2:15).  He was ordained as a Southern Baptist pastor in 1997, was used by God to begin a church in Jasper, GA, and to encourage another church plant near their home in Cleveland, GA.
 
Mike and his wife Elaine spent 2 years ministering in the Philippines with Action International Ministries at a Discipleship and Vocational Training Center. This was a life-changing experience that forever altered their view of the poor and underprivileged people of our world.
 
While dealing with a life-threatening medical condition that Mike had from birth, they decided to explore many avenues.  What the Bible says about Healthy Living by Dr. Rex Russell led them to change their diet, and a study in Essential Oils opened a very unexpected door to healing benefits. That led to a study about organic soils and agricultural laws given by God to Moses. All of these were so beneficial; they decided to look into the Biblical Festivals and Sabbath worship as well. All this has enriched their personal walk with Messiah Yeshua.
 
Elaine also graduated from Prairie and has a Bachelor’s degree in Religious Education. She has ministered along side Mike, offering support mainly in administration. Over the past 15 years, it has been her delight to work with Crown Financial Ministries in Gainesville, GA. Her passion is to help people manage their money biblically.
 
After studying with Rabbi Aaron for seven years, Mike was ordained as a Messianic rabbi on May 5th, 2018. Mike brings to Mishkan David an insatiable love for the Word of God, and desire to teach the deeper truths of the Kingdom of Messiah.
 
Mike and Elaine have 3 married children and 6 grandchildren. They are blessed to serve our Lord and our Mispocha at Congregation Mishkan David.
