Senior Messianic Rabbi

ARIEL is led by ordained Messianic Rabbi, Paul Falk, and supported by Rabbi Emeritus, Dennis Richards.

Rabbi Paul serves nearly full time meeting the constant needs of the congregation.  Rabbi Dennis, after many years of full time service, continues to teach and support on a semi-retired basis.  Both men also hold full-time jobs and do not depend on ARIEL for all of their livelihood.

Unlike most congregations today, this unique structure has tremendous significance. The leaders are free to teach as the Spirit leads without concern for popularity or the loss of their employment, and their sustenance is not a burden on the congregation.

As a result, one rarely—if ever—hears the speakers at ARIEL “asking for money” except in cases where a member of the congregation is in great need.

As a non-profit, 501-3(c) organization, the financial concerns of ARIEL are overseen by a voluntary Board of Directors appointed by the vote of the congregation. Other members of the congregation also serve as various ministry leaders on a voluntary basis.
