Staff member Jon Lieberman, representing our Mission at Taylor University’s annual student missions conference in Indiana, met a representative of a medical missions organization there. He asked, “Do you know any one who is Jewish?” She responded that she had met a young, Jewish, professional man at a conference in Ohio. Right away, Jon encouraged her to give him a copy of Isaiah 53 Explained the next time she saw him. The next week, she did just that, and within a week Jon received an email from Marvin* wanting Jon to “mentor him.” During a lengthy phone conversation, Marvin told Jon that he is “excited about starting this spiritual journey.” Jon writes, “I know that I will be investing hours and weeks patiently helping him. But isn’t that what discipleship is all about?”

Chosen People Ministries exists to pray for, evangelize, disciple, and serve Jewish people everywhere and to help fellow believers do the same. The mission was founded in Brooklyn, New York in 1894 by Rabbi Leopold Cohn, a Hungarian Jewish immigrant with a zeal to share the knowledge of Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah with God’s chosen people.
