Troy Mitchell Interview

Today's program features the music of Troy Mitchell.

Troy brings a fresh and authentic voice to Messianic Judaism. His original songs draw from the Gospels, the Hebrew of the Tanach, the Midrash, synagogue prayers, and first-century liturgy. They even utilize the Greek of the Apostolic Scriptures to bring a fusion of Chassidic joy, gospel hope, jazz, acoustic soul food and soulish prayer focused on the light of Messiah. Troy's  ability to almost become one with the music comes from leading and/or playing with worship bands since the early '90s. He has been challenged by blindness most of his life and has used music as a way to connect with Hashem and other people. His love for the Psalms, liturgy, the words of Yeshua and his involvement in the synagogue has given the movement unique melodies. Even more than that, it has instilled in him a passion for seeing everyone have a chance to draw closer to HaShem through music and prayer.

Before Troy became Messianic, he was a music minister at an Assembly of God church.  He currently does the music for the contemporary service at a Messianic synagogue called Beth Immanuel in Hudson Wisconsin. Troy has two albums out currently. The first album is called "Yoke of the King" and the newest one is called "Light of the World."

David Silver Interview

Today's program features an interview with David Silver.  David is originally from Auckland, New Zealand and immigrated to Israel in 1992. The initial vision for Out of Zion remains the same – that is to bring the Jewish people to their God and Messiah. By enlisting the Church's assistance, the task will be much more attainable. David is now sensing a strong call to divide his time between direct involvement in Jewish evangelism and bringing the Hebraic roots of the faith to the Church. He believes that this understanding must be returned to the Church as a preparation for the return of the Lord, who is coming back for His Bride.  For more info please visit

You'll also enjoy the music of Jonathan Settel, Barry & Batya Segal, Corry Bell/Lev Shelo, Zemer Levav and Beckah Shae!

Barry Segal Interview

Today's program featured the wonderful music of Barry and Batya Segal, and an interview with Barry. 
Batya first became internationally recognized for the rich worship music that she and her husband, Barry Segal, pioneered together. Batya was born in Jerusalem to an Orthodox Jewish Yemenite family. She has infused the rich sounds of her heritage into her music, along with the faith kindled in her after a profound experience and encounter with the Messiah Yeshua. Batya as a songwriter and Barry as a musician soon became well known through their Messianic music and teaching ministry. Barry and Batya now have a number of albums including "Sh'ma Yisrael," "Go Through the Gates," "Adonai" and "Timeless Sounds."
Barry and Batya Segal are the founding directors of a humanitarian aid center in Jerusalem. Their longing to help build and restore Israel inspired them to pioneer the nonprofit charity organization, Vision for Israel and The Joseph Storehouse, in 1994. The work currently functions as an international humanitarian aid center operating in the Judean Hills just outside of Jerusalem.
