Ephram Wilkoff Interview

I had the opportunity to interview Ephram Wilkoff, Worship Director at Edgewood Free Methodist Church in Rochester, NY.  Congregation Shema Yisrael has purchased the building on Edgewood Avenue, which is in a very Jewish neighborhood, and our two congregations have become very close.

Ephram grew up in a Jewish home.  His father became a believer first and Ephram grew up knowing Jesus as his Messiah.

As Worship Director, Ephram oversees anything creative that takes place on a Sunday morning. He has been in Rochester at EFMC since October 2014, and has a B.A. in worship arts leadership and broadcasting from Spring Arbor University. Ephram has been leading worship professionally since graduating in 2009. His personal mission statement is to incite passion for Jesus by creating environments that encourage the Holy Spirit to move and change peoples lives. He and his wife, Kay, are foster parents and God has truly blessed them!

Gloria Demchuk in the studio!

This was Gloria's second time on Bagels and Blessings.   What a joy to have her back in the studio!  Gloria has been a nurse for 25 years and had a lot to say about protecting the unborn.  She loves Yeshua, has a heart for Israel and desires to minister to hurting women.

We had a very frank discussion about abortion, options for women, and so much more.   It is a very heavy subject but one that is necesssary.

Pray for those who are pregnant, scared and don't know where to turn.

Enjoy wonderful music too, as always.
