Ben Campbell Interview

Being born in a bakery doesn't make you a bagel any more than being raised in a believing home makes you a believer!   I've heard that expression many times.   Ben Campbell was raised in a Messianic home but in college he made his own decision to follow Yeshua.   Lately the Lord has shown Ben some amazing things, using imagery and stories to demonstrate what it means to put the Lord first in your life.

In this broadcast you'll hear fabulous songs from Sue Samuel, Jonathan Settel, Barry & Batya Segal, and Elana Watson, and you'll gain a deeper understanding of what it means to follow the Lord with all your heart.

Justin Kron Interview

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.

You'll also enjoy wonderful music from Jonathan Settel, Greg Silverman, Sue Samuel, Paul Wilbur, Kathy Shooster and The Schleps!

Everything you could ask for --- a GREAT interview with Rabbi Jason Sobel and fantastic music!

After years of seeking, studying and several supernatural experiences, Jason became a follower of Yeshua (Jesus).

In addition, Rabbi Jason is the leader of Ruach LA, a next generation Messianic community. Ruach LA is a family friendly, creative, Spirit led and Yeshua centered fellowship. Ruach is a place where Jewish people can find meaningful, authentic relationships, experience the joys of living a Jewish life, and encounter the power and healing presence of God.
