Here in North America, we need experience in international ministry to help churches effectively reach across cultural barriers and forge partnerships within new communities of faith. In other nations, we need expertise in church planting and campus ministry to help people in every nation discover God’s plan for their church, community, and life. With your prayers and financial support, as a single agency we will be able to equip all our churches for ministry and join together with what God is already doing around the world.

Jews for Jesus began as a result of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in the United States circ. 1968-1973. In theology we are not innovative, but represent mainline evangelical thought and preach the historic gospel upon which all true Christians agree. Our front-line missionaries are Jewish, and are ordained or commissioned by their own churches and approved to our ministry. Educational requirements are strict and most of our missionaries are at or near the Master's level in theology or missions education.
