Jeff Kipp received a phone call from a Jewish businessman who explained he found Jeff’s name and number on the internet. Jacob* said, “Rabbi, I think I need to talk with you.” They met the following week for breakfast and Jacob confided that several people in his life through his business had shared the Gospel with him, but that he had questions that he felt he needed answered from someone with a Jewish perspective. After Jeff answered his questions, he seemed satisfied and said he thought he might be ready to accept that Yeshua was his Messiah.
Jeff said. “Jacob, why wait any longer. Would you like me to help you pray to receive the Lord?”
Jacob answered, “Yes, let’s pray.” Jacob was so happy afterwards that he gave Jeff a huge hug right there in the middle of the restaurant and again in the parking lot!
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.
