Dr. & Mrs. Elias E. Hidalgo are the Founders and Directors of Shalom Scripture Studies, Inc. They moved to the Twin Cities in March 1986 and were located in Minneapolis on Hennepin Ave. for a couple of years. After a couple of other locations, in March 1990 they moved to 6524 Walker Street.  In 2013 they were at 8700 W. 36th Street.


From their web site:

The birth of Shalom Scripture Studies, Inc. took place on May the 30th, 1974, in the city of Orange, California. It was here that Dr. Elias E. Hidalgo established a place of worship for Jewish and Gentile people. Here, Jewish and Gentile believers could gather together to worship The LORD GOD of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and here, non-believers could learn that Y’SHUA (JESUS) is LORD.

When Dr. Hidalgo began Shalom Scripture Studies over two decades ago, there were but a handful of congregations of this sort. Yet, since then, the proliferation of Hebrew-Christian (and “Messianic”) ministries has been phenomenal. TO GOD BE THE GLORY!

Shalom Scripture Studies, Inc. has experienced growth through many trials and triumphs over the years. In both cases, it has been a place of rest and learning for literally several thousands of people in California, Oregon, Washington, Minnesota, Georgia, and Florida.

Mrs. Ari D. Hidalgo, Th.B., began her full-time work with Shalom Scripture Studies, Inc. in 1979. She has been a great blessing to the founder, as well as to hundreds of ladies that she has taught over these many years. Rev. Nathan Knibb has also been a faithful friend and associate of Dr. and Mrs. Hidalgo for many years.

In July of 1996, Dr. and Mrs. Hidalgo relocated the headquarters of Shalom Scripture Studies, Inc. to Savannah, Georgia. One of the oldest Jewish communities in the United States is in Savannah, Georgia, and Shalom Scripture Studies is the first viable Hebrew-Christian witness to them. The missionary work located in Minneapolis, MN continues under the leadership of Rev. Nathan Knibb.

Rev. Molloy is now in the process of expanding Shalom Scripture Studies in Naples, Florida. Truly, the LORD is blessing us abundantly above our hopes and expectations for He is our exceedingly great reward.
