Jack currently serves as the Congregational Leader of Beth Am Messiah in New City, NY. Jack, who was a former school teacher, began a computer ergonomics business in 1981 and co-founded two other successful businesses shortly thereafter (SoftwareHouse and Applied Systems Technology). During his twenty-five years in business, he actively served in the Congregation. Around 2003, he began sensing God’s call to serve in full-time ministry and left the business world behind.

Among Jack’s greatest blessings were seeing his mother, father, and brother come to faith in Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus Christ); they have all gone home to be with the Lord. Jack’s wife, Kate, and their four children (Caitlin, Dan, Sarah, and Ariel), along with Ruben and Casey, their son-in-law and daughter-in-law, and their five grandchildren (Noelia, Cielle, Claire, Jack and Levi), have Messiah Yeshua in their hearts and are his most precious blessings.

In his calling as Congregational Leader of Beth Am Messiah, Jack moved forward with a godly mandate to diligently pursue the building of long-term relationships with the local churches. Since then, God has greatly blessed the bond of unity between Beth Am Messiah and the local churches. The wonderful fruit of this unity is what motivated him to want to write the “Becoming One Bible Study.” Jack and Kate have a heart’s desire to facilitate the coming together of Jew and Gentile in the “one new man” throughout the world; wherever there are local messianic congregations and churches. (Ephesians 2:15)
