Yoel Ben David came to faith in Jesus in 2001 while living as an Orthodox Jew in Jerusalem and serving in the Rabbinical Corps during his mandatory military service. His knowledge and experience in the Orthodox Jewish world have been important to his ministry.
Yoel was raised in Europe but was born in Israel. He speaks English, French, and Hebrew. Yoel has always had the heart of a teacher. After earning a master’s degree in theology and leadership from Western Seminary, he served as the Jews for Jesus head of training for our missionary staff in Israel. Yoel now leads our work in Jerusalem, bringing the gospel back to the city where he first believed.
Yoel is married to Adel, who is also on staff, and they have four children.
