This web page is one way we are celebrating ministry for the Lord under the banner of Jews for Jesus. We started with a handful of Jewish believers sharing their faith in Jesus on the campuses and streets of the San Francisco Bay Area in the early 70s. Today, Jews for Jesus is an international ministry with a staff of 214 spread out over eleven countries and twenty cities. Since we started, over 800 people have faithfully served on our staff and have helped to make the messiahship of Jesus an unavoidable issue to millions of individuals. And together, we rejoice over what God has done!

It was my experience and privilege to serve Moishe Rosen, founder of Jews for Jesus, for 2 years. We traveled many places together and I was glad to help make the Messiahship of Yeshua an unavoidable issue to the Jewish people worldwide with Moishe. The following are some of the gleanings of my tutelage under…

My experience with Jews for Jesus is a very positive experience. I remember so well like it was yesterday. I got to witness the hand of our Lord in a very powerful way when I first started working with Jews for Jesus. God used this imperfect vessel to touch the lives of many people with…

My name is Murray Tilles. I became a believer in 1978 while a student at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. I was raised in a very religious Jewish home. Needless to say, after accepting Jesus as Messiah, my parents were not overjoyed, in fact, they became extremely angry and tried desperately to…

When we started out, we only planned to be on the team for 18-months, which was a pretty serious commitment. We didn’t know too much…

When my husband, Warren Conrad, retired from the pastorate after 44 years, little did I realize how much I was going to love our next assignment, and how much I was going to learn. For a little over 5 years we had the wonderful privilege of working with Jews for Jesus in the capacity of…

To whom it may concern, I served with Jews for Jesus for six years, from 1995 to 2000. During my time with the mission, I found Jews for Jesus to be a Christian ministry (or Messianic, if you prefer) with a passion for the good news about Jesus and a heartfelt dedication to communicating the…
