About Us

A Messianic Jewish Congregation
Located in the heart of Tucson, Congregation Beth Sar Shalom is a congregation of Jewish and gentile believers in Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah of Israel. We exist as a community and house of worship for those who like to look at the New Testament through Jewish eyes and the Old Testament through Christian eyes.

Our Leader
Steve Shermett is our founding Congregational Leader. In addition to leading Beth Sar Shalom, Steve frequently teaches at other Congregations. He is currently serving as the interim Pulpit Pastor at Crossroads Church having finished a year as the interim Pulpit Pastor at El Camino Baptist Church. Steve is a co-founder, and current president of the Association of Messianic Congregations ( With his wife Deanne's assistance he founded Beth Sar Shalom in 1991. He is a graduate of the Moody Bible Institute's Jewish Studies Program where he earned his BA degree. Steve and Deanne have four children that they love with all of their hearts: Nathanael (whose web skills made this page possible), Andrew, Michaela and Joseph.
