Director of North American Ministries

Looking at the Western World you may be more discouraged than ever as our societies are turning further and further away from the Truth of God’s Word. Here at The Friends of Israel we see this as a greater opportunity to shine the light of Jesus bright in this dark world! Jesus in Matthew 5:14-16 said,

“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”

Our American and Canadian workers are busy. Busy ministering to Jewish people, meeting their physical and spiritual needs as well as teaching Christians about the simple biblical Truth of God’s love for the Jewish people. Join us as we minister to this dark world. Come along side us as we shine the light of the Gospel! Get to know our workers below.

Let Us Come To You

UNITED STATES

Our U.S. workers are actively ministering throughout the states in a variety of venues hosting Bible conferences, prophecy conferences, and speaking in churches about what the Bible says about Israel, the Jewish people, and end-times prophecy. Some are on our college campuses engaging in conversations with students and faculty of all religions while sharing about the eternal change the Messiah has made in their lives. Others are ministering to the Jewish people through volunteering at Jewish museums, nursing homes, and making one-on-one friendships.

CANADA

Since 1998 The Friends of Israel Gospel Ministry Canadian arm (FOI Gospel Ministry) has been active and involved in the Jewish communities throughout Canada. Through FOI Gospel sponsored conferences, church involvement, and one-on-one discipleship, many Canadians are learning biblical truth from the Scriptures about Israel and the Jewish people. The Canadian Communiqué, a quarterly newsletter, is sent to many FOI Gospel Ministry supporting homes in order to learn of the work being done throughout Canada in the Messiah’s name.
