The Messianic Jewish Voice

Steven Ger

Steven Ger

    Steven Ger grew up in a Jewish family in Brooklyn , New York and Aberdeen , New Jersey , where he was educated in both church and synagogue due to his distinctive heritage as a Jewish Christian. He is the founder and director of Sojourner Ministries, an organization dedicated to exploring the Jewish heart of Christianity. The name of the ministry is derived from the Hebrew meaning of Mr. Ger’s surname. In Hebrew, the word “ger” means sojourner or wanderer. This particular “wandering” Jew’s faith journey has led him to the conviction that Jesus is the Messiah who was foretold in the Hebrew Scriptures.

    Steven’s first book, the commentary The Book of Acts: Witness to the World, was released in 2005. This was followed by The Popular Bible Prophecy Commentary (coauthor, 2007) and his latest commentary, The Book of Hebrews: Christ is Greater (2009). He is also a contributing author to the books The Gathering Storm (2005), The Popular Bible Prophecy Encyclopedia (2006) and Zondervan King James Version Commentary: Old Testament (2010). He is the former host of the North Texas weekly radio show, The Jewish Heart of Christianity, and is uniquely equipped to comment on Israel , Judaism and the Church. He has appeared as a guest expert on both radio and television. He is also the host of an hour-long teaching video, The Unleavened Messiah: A Portrait of Christ in the Passover, showing how Christ’s reinterpretation of the Passover meal instituted the celebration of communion and announced a new era in human history.

    Television audiences and church congregations alike have enjoyed Steven’s leading in invigorating, contemporary messianic worship. He is an accomplished singer, pianist and songwriter whose composition, "Jeremiah 31", was recorded by The Liberated Wailing Wall.

    Steven has led 15 tours to Israel , with extensions to Egypt , Greece , Jordan , Turkey and Germany . He is an adjunct professor of Jewish Studies at Criswell College, and has lectured at Dallas Theological Seminary and taught at Tyndale Seminary. He served for fifteen years within the local church as Worship and Christian Education minister and as worship leader at messianic congregation Adat Shalom. Stgeven currently serves as Teaching Pastor for messianic congregation Beth Sar Shalom in Plano, TX.

    He earned a BA in psychology and interpersonal communications from Trenton State College and a ThM from Dallas Theological Seminary. Steven lives in the Dallas area with his wife, Adria, and their son, Jonathan Gabriel.

America Must Pray

    Public prayer, spiritual publications of poems and music, have always been a part of America, until recently. There are forces now trying to silence the Christian spiritual heritage of open and free expression to our God that made this nation great.

    Christian expression and public prayer was a vital part of our nation’s blessing. We may not fully know of the spiritual state of all the men we examine, but we do know none of them were fearful of prayers to the God of the Bible in the public setting.

    If you are a pastor or Sunday school teacher, please print off these little bits of our history and share them with others.

Theodore Roosevelt called him "that filthy little atheist." But even atheists in the fox hole can call upon God, and that is just what Paine often did. His prayers may not have been sincere but they were ... READ MORE
