Greg Williams was born in South Africa to a family of Jewish believers in Jesus. They moved to Israel when he was three years old, and currently is living with his wife Anastasiya and their daughter, Na’ama, in Tel Aviv.
It wasn’t easy growing up as a believer in Israel, as he found himself very much in the minority. As a child, he hid his beliefs in order to avoid being treated as an outsider. But at the age of 13, he attended a youth conference during which he felt God’s presence, and his life was changed. He knew he couldn’t continue to straddle both worlds and needed to choose what was more important to him. He chose to stop hiding his faith, and he began to tell his friends about Jesus. Since growing up as a believer was such a struggle for him, he wanted to share the truth and reality of Jesus with other young people in order to help them live fully with God.
Today, Greg serves with Jews for Jesus in Tel Aviv as a leader of a team whose focus is ministering to children, youth, soldiers, and young adults. He’s also part of the team that handles various events at the Moishe Rosen Center.
