Jason Rose Interview

It's all in the family!  A few weeks ago, I aired my interview with Tov Rose and now today I shared an interview with his brother Jason!   Here's some info about Jason:

Jason Rose is the Director of our Greater Tel Aviv Messianic Center. He lives and serves the Lord in Tel Aviv, Israel along with his wife Janice and their five boys. Jason grew up in a Jewish home in Minnesota and became a believer when he was 15 years old through the strong testimony of a family member. Jason served in the U.S. Navy for four years and then went on to receive two degrees: a BA in Jewish Studies from Moody Bible Institute in Chicago (2002) and a Masters Degree in English Language Teaching and Learning (2006) from Liverpool University, England (Tel Aviv campus). In 2002, Jason moved to Israel and began his Masters degree program. He served in a local congregation in many capacities. Due to his strong desire to share the Gospel, in 2005, with the help of many friends, Jason created an outreach called the Gospel Cafe. It was a weekly event with live music, free lattes, and an elegant atmosphere.

In March of 2009, Jason became a full-time staff member with Chosen People Ministries. At that time the Gospel Cafe became a ministry of Chosen People Ministries. Since 2009 dozens of Jewish people have come to know the Lord through our coffee shop outreach. His ministry focuses on outreach, discipleship and education. The vision of Greater Tel Aviv Messianic Center is to provide much needed educational information to the public through classes and courses taught by believers who are professionals in those fields. These environments eliminate some of the cultural barriers to the Gospel and allow us to demonstrate that Jewish believers in Yeshua (Jesus) are actually normal people. Jason is also working with other local Israelis to open a Messianic / Christian school in the Tel Aviv area. Jason and Janice both have a passion for discipling young people and love ministering as a couple. The excellent behavior and good manners of their children have opened many doors to share about Messiah Yeshua (Jesus). As a missionary family they are blessed and honored to serve the Lord among God’s Chosen People in Israel.

Enjoy the music and the interview and Shabbat Shalom!

Cookie Berman Interview

You may ask, "How does she find new people to interview?"   Well, I'm glad you asked!  Sometimes I find them on Facebook, other times through a recommendation.   And occasionally someone contacts me and asks to be on the program!

I found Cookie Berman through a mutual contact on Facebook.   She is delightful and I know you'll enjoy our interview together.   Here is her story:

In the late 80’s I remember telling my mother I was planning to get baptized and she responded “before you do that, I want you to find a nice young Rabbi and tell him that I did a bad job of bringing you up as a good Jewish girl.” (Jewish Guilt 101.) It was a difficult journey but this is how my life went from growing up as a Jewish girl and finally finding my redeemer, Yeshua HaMashiach! Baruch HaShem!

Susan Gibboney Interview

Shalom!  Today you'll hear a fun interview with Susan Gibboney.   Here's her story in her own words:

"I hale from Montreal Quebec Canada and I got here to Orange, a city in California, when I was 18 years old. Due to some very bad choices, I did end up being incarcerated for a short time, for sales of Illegal drugs but that had nothing to do with how much love and attention and encouragement that I got from my parents and my family. It was just that I did have to leave all my friends when I was 18 which was very hard, and settle in Orange County in 68 which was the beginning of drug culture at this time.

I was raised Catholic, private Catholic boarding schools with the nuns, since my mom wanted me to get a good education, and I did finally find Yeshua, my Lord and Savior in 1974 at Calvary Chapel in Costa Mesa with Chuck Smith and Romaine and Greg Laurie. I did have to go through a very hard divorce when I was 29 after being married for six years, since my first husband did cheat on me with a secretary, but the gist of all that is that I have two beautiful sons and they are 44 and 46, and I have six beautiful grandchildren,  one girl and five boys, and after I met my current husband Les, in 1982, At that time my boys were three and five And we did marry when they were five and seven, and then of course my current husband and I had my daughter, who is 36 years old, now. And history repeating itself in that she just married somebody who has two beautiful children,boys, that she shares with him, and they are 11 and eight. 

I  had discovered  that I was not receiving everything from God that he wanted me to have, and I became Messianic about 20 years ago through my church Shiloh Messianic Congregation in Crestline.  As I had earlier stated,
after Calvary, where  I was saved, I became part of the Vineyard Church in Anaheim - for a time. And then Shiloh Messianic 20 years ago, when  our church made a big change from Vineyard and Calvary. 
And the Blessed and the fun part of that , is it’s my sister and her husband that are the pastors - 
Pastor Bruce and Pastor Kathleen Dowell. 

We are part of the one new man, the Jew and the gentile grafted in, and our congregation is in Redlands , California at the Church on the Hill , in case anybody wants to come visit on Shabbat."
