We had been married for two years when we joined the Liberated Wailing Wall. We were on the road for almost three years (Jan. 1999-October 2002) with two different teams. When we started out, we only planned to be on the team for 18-months, which was a pretty serious commitment. We didn't know too much about Jews For Jesus. In fact, we were surprised when we found out that street evangelism was a weekly part of our job.
My exposure to Jews for Jesus goes back to 1973, and I have known their founder, Moishe Rosen, since the early 1960s. Sadly (to me), I cannot take a public stand in favor of every organization identifying itself with Jesus. But Jews for Jesus is #1 on my list of missions worthy of respect, trust and support.
Spiritual Counterfeits Project (SCP) has been a frontline ministry confronting the occult, the cults, and the New Age movement and explaining why they are making an impact on our society. In the name of truth, sophisticated lies are fed to unwary people who live in and shape our world. Our mandate is to communicate with our generation by creating crossover material that alerts and informs about the very real dangers of the latest deceptions. It is a critical mission at a critical time.
I have known the Jews for Jesus organization and senior staff for years. They are an organization with fundamental integrity, i.e. they live up to their stated goals with no hidden agenda. They are characterized by their clear, sober, biblical theology which is in line with the principles of the reformation. They represent a clear voice against the separation of Jewish and Gentile believers in Messiah and encourage active membership of Jewish believers in Jesus in local churches.
Mr. David Brickner
It has been my privilege to be associated with Jews for Jesus since 1987 as a member of their Board of Directors. In that time, I have had the opportunity to witness up-close the inner workings of this missionary organization to Jewish people.
Often in a ministry context I am asked, How are you different from Jews for Jesus?"
It is hard to believe we have entered the 30th year of ministry for Jews For Jesus. In these 30 years over 800 people have served the Lord with this mission. Together we have talked to hundreds of thousands of people about the Lord, introduced thousands more to faith in Y'shua and had the gospel published for tens of millions to see. We have grown from a small tribe to an international team of highly dedicated missionaries with branches in 11 countries around the world. We've received credit (and blame) for all sorts of things we didn't do, from evangelizing worshippers at the Western Wall to introducing Dylan to Messiah! We have helped change the climate of opinion in the Jewish community concerning the person of Jesus. What an interesting adventure these past 30 years have been!
What a privilege it was to serve on the board of Jews for Jesus! I enjoyed that responsibility for 18 years and regretfully gave it up only because of advancing age (I am now 88).
