Reverend Jeffrey Kran is a Jewish believer who was born in Chicago in 1962 and raised by secular Jewish parents. However, he was greatly influenced by his Orthodox Jewish grandfather who lived with them for some years and made sure that Jeff had the basis of a Jewish education. Jeff came to faith in 1982 through a study of the evidence for the truth of Scripture – particularly Messianic prophecy. Since then, he has been active in Bible teaching, conference speaking and congregation planting.
Jeff has a deep and long-standing burden for his Jewish people and has lectured and held open forums on college campuses and taught workshops on Jewish theological objections to the Gospel. Jeff joined Chosen People Ministries’ staff full time in 2006. He and his wife, Marlene, have a vision for evangelism and to work with churches to equip believers to bring Jewish people to Messiah. The Krans have five children.
