Messianic Judaism is Bible based Judaism. Messianic Jews believe that the Scriptures – from Genesis through Revelation – are the inerrant word of God. These writings reveal both the history and future of mankind from creation through the second coming of Messiah.
Messianic Judaism is the Jewish arm of the Body of Messiah. We maintain our roots, heritage and lifestyle by worshipping HaShem (God the Father), Yeshua Ha Mashiach (as our Jewish Messiah and Intercessor), by the Ruach (Holy Spirit) in a Jewish context.
Minister / Model / Actor
With a background as being an established actor and model in L.A. for many years, Chip Matthews was caught up in the trappings of alcohol, drugs and promiscuity. He appeared in such shows as Columbo, Star Trek Next Generation, and China Beach. His resume also includes such clients as Chevrolet, American Image, Nike, Sidi, Gillette, Academy and Ralph Lauren.
His spiritual journey began with a decision to get clean and sober. He then traveled down the paths of New Age, Hinduism, Buddhism, all forms of meditation and “self realization” in the hopes of finding God. Experiencing only temporarily satisfaction, he decided to return to his childhood roots of Christianity. With equal fervency, he began to pursue God through Jesus Christ. While working in Miami, Chip had a supernatural encounter of being taken into heaven and was called into the prophetic ministry by the Lord.
After a season of consecration, sanctification and training, Chip was released into ministry which includes prophesy, healing, deliverance, warfare and intercession. Although his first passion is for ministry, God continues to use him in both acting and modeling but this time, for God’s glory and not his own.
For further information or speaking engagements, Chip can be contacted at 832.643.8092, firstname.lastname@example.org, or P.O. Box 540201, Houston, Texas 77254.

Twenty-two years ago, Debbie Porter, mother of three, got into photography by taking her children’s pictures for an acting agency.

Within two years she was working for commercial clients in Texas and locations across the states. It wasn’t long before she was working with some of the best talent in the industry. Although she had a serious interest in photography in high school, she has had no other formal training in photography. Ms. Porter went to college to study commercial art and went on to get an Associates Art Degree. A degree that definitely contributes to successfully creating images that sell. She is best described as an unconventional photographer, with a versatile style. Visit: www.DebbiePorterPhotography.com
