Bruce Rapp heads the Phoenix branch of Jews for Jesus. He previously served with the leadership team of our New York branch and has served with our Chicago branch and as National Director of Mobile Evangelism at the San Francisco ministry headquarters. It was at a church's Easter production that he began considering the claims of Jesus. He was amazed to hear the pastor relate prophetic Hebrew scriptures--Isaiah 53, Micah 5, Psalm 22--to Jesus. Bruce found himself wondering, "Could this be true or are they changing the words?" Through reading the Bible and attending church services, the truth became unavoidably clear: they had not changed the words. Finally, during a presentation on King David, Bruce realized that no matter what he did or didn't do, he would always be a Jew--and, he says, by accepting Jesus, he has become a faithful Jew. Bruce is married to Tracy, and they have two grown children, Morgan and Jordan.

Jews for Jesus is a not-for-profit, 501(c)3 organization. We trust God for the funding of Jews for Jesus, and He has provided through caring Christians. Each missionary raises his or her own support. We ask our Christian friends to support their local churches first. Then we ask people to prayerfully consider giving to our ministry as well. We welcome the support of all Christians, though we particularly appreciate those who include our ministry in their regular missions giving.
