Dear David,

It is my pleasure to extend heart congratulations to you and all your colleagues in the ministry of Jews for Jesus during its 30′ anniversary year! We are thankful for the wonderful kingdom work being accomplished by Jews for Jesus, particularly in outreach to Jewish communities. We believe God is honored by the faithfulness with which Jews for Jesus has been fulfilling its calling.

ECFA (The Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) is particularly proud to count Jews for Jesus among its nearly I 100 member organizations. In fact, Jews for Jesus is one of only 116 current charter members of ECFA, having held continual membership in good standing since May of 1980, the first year after ECFA’s inception.

As you know, ECFA membership requires a commitment to high standards of financial integrity and accountability, which must be demonstrated through a rigorous annual membership review, and periodic on-site field reviews. Ongoing membership with ECFA is not automatic, and Jews for Jesus has voluntarily maintained a commitment to compliance with the ECFA Standards of Responsible Stewardship for 23 years! Your willingness to undergo the scrutiny required for membership reveals your desire to do what is right, not only in the eyes of the Lord but also in the eyes of men (II Corinthians 8:21).

May God continue to richly bless you and the work of Jews for Jesus. We look forward to our continued partnership for accountability before a watching world.


Paul D. Nelson
