Jeffrey and Marlene Kran

Reverend  Jeffrey Kran is a Jewish believer; he was born in Chicago in 1962 and was raised in a secular Jewish home.  Yet, he was greatly influenced by his Orthodox Jewish grandfather who lived with them for some years and made sure that Jeff had the best Jewish education.

Jeff came to faith in 1982 through a study of the evidence for the truth of Scripture -, particularly Messianic prophecy. Since he came to faith he has been active in Bible teaching, conference speaking and congregation planting. Jeff has also been featured on radio and TV and shares at various outdoor outreach events.

Having a deep and long-standing burden for his Jewish people, Jeff has lectured and held open forums on college campuses, taught workshops on Jewish objections to the gospel, along with other Apologetics topics. Jeff’s passion is bringing the Messiah to his people through knowledge of the Scriptures via evangelism, Bible studies, personal discipleship, and equipping the Church.

Jeff has been on staff with Chosen People Ministries since 2006 and serves with his wife Marlene and their five children.
