Olives in the Field
Jean and Jerry began a ministry in 1983. They have a home fellowship that meets every Shabbat, beginning with a Sabbath meal and incorporating the traditional blessings over the candles, wine, and challah bread. Their fellowship teaches on the Jewish roots of Christianity and centers on seeing Messiah in the Biblical feasts. Most of all, Jean and Jerry desire to love and comfort Israel (Isaiah 40). They spend a few months every year in Israel, celebrating several of the feasts in the land and playing through different passages of Scripture on the 22-string harp. Their ministry extends to encouraging the Christian Arabs living in the land, whom they have come to love as brothers and sisters in Christ.
