Jack: Brooklyn, NY
Missionary/Field RepresentativeBrooklyn, NY
Jack's first interaction with Ariel Ministries began in 2001 when he attended Camp Shoshanah and was baptized by Mottel Baleston and Dr. Fruchtenbaum. He is a graduate of the Horizon School of Evangelism and holds a BA in Theology from Valparaiso University and an MBA from San Diego State. His ministry background includes missions, teaching, and writing. Jack officially joined Ariel in 2015. He and his family served in Israel for 3 years, during which time he ministered in many capacities including discipleship, preaching, and evangelism.
Jack's wife, Angi, enjoys counseling women one-on-one, caring for babies, and witnessing to unbelievers. Her experiences include medical assisting, working as a live-in nanny, and missions. Angi’s family roots include many Messianic Jews going back at least into the 1800's, and a few pastors as well. She has homeschooled and roadschooled their 2 sons, and, as a family, they have lived in small and major cities, farmed in the country, RV'd full-time and traveled through all 48 contiguous states. In Israel, she ran the children’s ministry, co-led the women’s study, and served as doula for a couple in the congregation.
After ministering in Israel, the family returned to the United States and continues to serve the Lord. They are currently building a prayer and support team for their ministry in Brooklyn, New York.
Brooklyn is a fantastic place for Jewish ministry. It has been called the Jewish capital of the world. With well over half a million Jewish residents, Brooklyn has more Jews than Tel Aviv, and rivals the numbers in Jerusalem. And that is just the one borough. Looking at New York City as a whole, even with conservative estimates of just 1.1 million (and likely closer to 1.5M), there is no other city in the world where more of God’s Chosen People call home.
It is Jack & Angi’s hope, and their focus, that the Remnant in Brooklyn will grow. Their work is to share Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) with those who do not yet have a personal saving relationship with Him, and to disciple those who do.
They also welcome you to consider joining their team.
