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 organization's 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.
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."
88% of the money that supports Jewish Evangelism comes from donors like you.
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.
