Peter and his wife Olga are both from the former Soviet Union where he worked as a mechanical engineer. They immigrated to the United States in 1995 and recently became US citizens. They both were baptized the same day in 1996 after hearing the gospel at a local church. Peter has served with Jews for Jesus as part of the New York branch since 1999, handing out evangelistic literature, visiting interested seekers, and ministering through our weekly Shabbat Fellowship in the Brighton Beach area. Today God uses all the creativity and flexibility that Peter learned as an engineer in his ministry. They have three children: Michael, Masha and Hannah.
We are charter members of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA), a Christian watchdog group. This group requires us to comply with rigorous standards of reporting and auditing. As the old Hebrew National hot dog slogan used to say, "We answer to a higher authority."

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.
