A Jewish Baptist Preacher
I grew up in Cleveland, OH. Although my mother had raised us in a church-going home, I had been rebellious against it my whole life. God got a hold of my heart on June 26, 1999. I realized I wasn’t saved just because I went to church. I understood that Jesus died and rose again for my sin, and called out to Him in repentance and faith to save me!
After my salvation, I became very burdened for the salvation of my Jewish father, and felt like the Lord was calling me to preach.
One Sunday evening service, a Jewish missionary came to our church and spoke about Jewish missions. I had never heard of such a thing! I felt like the ugly duckling who had just found his family.
After graduating from Pensacola Christian College (where I met my wife, Lois) in 2006 with a B.A. in Missions, I did a two year internship at Grace Bible Independent Baptist Church in Shinglehouse, PA. I was ordained there in 2009.
We came on board with Jewish Awareness Ministries in 2010, and served as missionaries in the Cleveland, OH area until 2015. In January of 2015, I believe the Lord called me to expand my outreach and vision to the Jewish population of the entire world, and to seek more laborers for the harvest. We moved to North Carolina in July of 2015 to work out of our headquarters, and to help grow and strengthen the ministry.
The Need for Jewish Missions
ShalomShalom.radio is an internet radio station with the sole purpose of reaching Jewish people with the message of Jesus the Messiah. All of the programs, music, and testimonies on our broadcast are geared toward that end. When reaching people groups of another culture, it is important to reach them within thier own context. Methods of witnessing such as the “Romans Road” won’t make much sense to a Jewish person. All of our broadcasts have that in mind, as we share Jesus with a Jewish listener, from a Jewish perspective.
