Dan Sered was born in Israel to a secular Jewish family. While his parents might have been considered atheists, he always believed in God and the miracles that God does in the TaNaKh (Old Testament). In his teens, the Sered family relocated to New York, where Dan later attended Stony Brook University and met Dinah, a Jewish believer in Jesus. Dinah shared the Gospel with Dan and showed him how Yeshua (Jesus) fulfilled the prophecies of the Messiah. His eyes were opened and Dan committed his life to the Lord. In 1999, Dan & Dinah were married and soon after began serving as missionaries, joining Jews for Jesus and later moving to Israel. In 2006, Dan was appointed as the Israel Director of Jews for Jesus; the organizations largest branch in the world today. As its director, Dan oversees Missionary Teams in both Hebrew and Russian, a Youth and Young Adult Team, and the Moishe Rosen Center located in the heart of Tel Aviv. In 2013, Dan received his M.A. in Ministry and Leadership from Western Seminary, and is currently a doctoral student and working on his D. Min. through Dallas Theological Seminary. Dan & Dinah have 3 children; Yael, Eithan and Yoav.

My country, Israel, was birthed from the pain of one of humanity’s greatest experiences of […]
