It was wonderful chatting with Justin Kron. He is a second generation believer and I was intrigued by his story. Justin became a follower of Yeshua at a young age and grew up with one foot in the Jewish world and one foot in the Christian world. He has subsequently developed a passion for acquainting Christians with the Jewish roots and heritage of the Christian faith, and to become better equipped and engaged in living an authentic faith among their Jewish friends and neighbors.
Since 1998, Justin has served as a National Ministries Representative
with Chosen People Ministries and is the founder and director of
experience Israel, a short-term ministry and spiritual pilgrimage
program for young adults. He is also the founder and coordinator of the
Kesher Forum in Chicago, an interdenominational learning community for
those who are interested in learning more about Jewish culture and
building bridges with their Jewish friends and neighbors.
Justin has served with the Danny Byram Ministries, a concert ministry
to the U.S. military, and as an Area Manager with Promise Keepers in
Chicago, where he represented the organization as the national liaison
to the Messianic Jewish community. Justin studied at the Moody
Theological Seminary and is a frequent contributor to various blogs and
radio programs on topics related to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict,
historical anti-Semitism and the Jewishness of Jesus. He is a member of
Willow Creek Community Church where Justin serves on the Leadership
Advisory Council, and his wife, Judy, directs Women of Willow at their
North Shore congregation in Northfield, Illinois.
