Who would have ever dreamed that a splinter group of Armstrongism would ever be holding a feast on the Big Sandy campus in our life time. This is no ordinary Church of God splinter group, in fact it isn't one of the larger groups who claim to be the sole possessors of the truth. None of these larger groups ever had the will power to ask Alert Academy (see end of page) of they could do so. Its a small group of sacred name/new moon observers. This group is lead by Mark Harris.
From what I have seen of them over the years they certainly seem to have a more interesting version of the Feast of Tabernacles than any of the dull Feast sites that the regular Church of God's produce. Its filled with joy and dancing compared to endless hours of old white men preaching the same canned sermons they have preached for the last 30-50 years.We are excited to announce our site for The Feast of Tabernacles 2015! This year we will be hosting Sukkot in Big Sandy, Texas!
Years ago this campus was built to host and house thousands of people to celebrate The Feast of Tabernacles!
So after many years, we are resurrecting the original intent of the campus to Celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles as families united together for YHWH!
At this Wonderful facility, now known as International Alert Academy, you’ll discover many exciting things to do and find not only a restful & relaxing feast, but also an unforgettable experience of enjoyment, inspiration and togetherness as we rejoice before YHWH our Maker! Come enjoy a spirit filled Sukkot Celebration with us in UNITY with our Messiah!
We welcome you to come and join our family along with many of our close friends and brethren! Among the many scheduled activities there will be awesome praise, worship and dance, inspiring messages, Torah studies, exciting hikes, wonderful family feast games such as repelling, swimming, zip line, obstacle course (provided by Alert), sweet fellowship and encouragement along with beautiful enjoyment in YAH’s Creation!
This has to be an huge embarrassment to Gerald Flurry, Dave Pack and Rod Meredith. None of these men ever had the guts to ask Alert Academy of they could hold a Feast there. Imagine the coup they could have had if they did. They could have had thousands show up just to experience it again.
International Alert Academy was the buyer of the Big Sandy campus of Ambassador College. They were able to buy the entire 2000+ acre property for pennies on the dollar. Alert works with men (women are to remain in the home and breed children) to send out to the world in case of emergencies and other disasters as they represent their version of Jesus Christ. Alert Academy also has close ties to the Dugger Family. Its a right wing, conservative, dominionist oriented belief system far worse than any of the cult teachings of Herbert Armstrong!
Alert Academy was started by Bill Gothard who was recently accused of molesting several women in his conservative cult. Bill Gothard
