Missionary Trainee

I was born in New Jersey where I was raised in a Jewish believing home. I have been involved with the ministry my entire life, and grew up going to our camps which I now help to direct. I am currently in my last year of college, getting my bachelors of psychology from DePaul University.

Missionary

I currently serve in the Chicago branch as a missionary. I was born in New York City and raised in a home with a Christian Gentile father and a Jewish believing mother. I got a B.A. in theater and writing at Marymount Manhattan College, and after graduating, founded an avant garde theater company. During this time, I met my husband David at a Jews for Jesus Shabbat dinner for young adults in Brooklyn, and soon after we were married, we answered God’s calling to enter full-time ministry. David and I have now been serving in the Chicago branch for four years, where we re-launched the Camp Gilgal Midwest program, lead Halutzim (a two-week evangelism experience for teens), and planted a local ministry of both evangelism and discipleship to Jewish teens and young adults in the Chicagoland area. We also have a young daughter named Yael.

Missionary

I currently serve in the Chicago branch as the director of our Midwest Children and Youth Ministries. I was born in St. Louis and raised in a home with a Christian Gentile father and a Jewish believing mother. After working as a coach, waiter, and serving as a US Marine, I finally graduated from Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego with a B.A. in business administration. I met my wife Arielle at a Jews for Jesus Shabbat dinner for young adults in Brooklyn, and soon after we married, we answered God’s calling to enter full-time ministry. Arielle and I have now been serving in the Chicago branch for four years, where we re-launched the Camp Gilgal Midwest program, lead Halutzim (a two-week evangelism experience for teens), and planted a local ministry of both evangelism and discipleship to Jewish teens and young adults in the Chicagoland area.
