Toby and Natalie Mann
serving in Washington, D.C.
Toby and Natalie are missionaries serving in the Washington, D.C. area. Toby earned a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice from the University of Maryland, and more recently, he received a Master of Divinity in Messianic Jewish Studies from the Charles L. Feinberg Center.
Toby’s parents are both Jewish and believers in Yeshua. Although he grew up in a believing home, he strayed from his faith for many years. When Toby and Natalie met, they decided to rededicate their lives to the Lord. They started attending the congregation in which Toby grew up as well as a Bible study at a local Hispanic church that tremendously impacted their lives.
Although Natalie is not Jewish, she felt a deep connection with learning the Jewish roots of her faith. Toby and Natalie were married in 2013 and began feeling a call to be involved in ministry.
They are from the Washington, D.C. area but moved to Brooklyn so Toby could attend the Feinberg Center. They enjoyed two years in Brooklyn living amid the Orthodox Jewish community. It was an amazing experience in which they grew so much. Since then, Toby has felt a deeper burden and love for his fellow Jewish people. The pandemic brought them back to the Washington, D.C. area, where Toby is now an elder at his home congregation, Son of David.
They serve in many capacities at Son of David—teaching Shabbat School, leading corporate prayer nights, and hosting bonfires. In addition, Toby preaches once a month, and Natalie is on the worship team. Most recently, they have also come on board as associate directors of a Messianic children’s camp, and Toby sits on the board of Muchan, an international young adult conference for Messianic believers.
They are walking in obedience to God’s calling on their lives and look forward to sharing this continued adventure with their two daughters. Natalie will continue to pursue her career working with a sign language agency. She, too, is excited to see the Lord share His love and salvation with all people—especially the Jewish people.
