We are excited to have speakers who will present new ideas, alter old paradigms and cast vision. It is up to us to interact with those ideas and blaze a new path, utilizing what came before and inspiring our Messianic movement into the future.
Raised in a traditional Jewish home in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., Scott began his spiritual journey by dropping out of college and moving into the woods of northern Wisconsin. It was there a co-worker gave Scott a pocket New Testament. The resulting crisis of faith would eventually lead to Scott’s salvation seven years later.
Scott entered full-time missionary service with Chosen People Ministries in 1988 and launched Son of David Congregation (SODC), which flourished and later birthed Sar Shalom Fellowship in northern Virginia. After nineteen years of pastoral leadership at SODC, Scott and four of their seven children moved to New Zealand, where he launched a new ministry reaching out to many thousands of young Israeli travelers, whose physical journeys are often accompanied with spiritual quests.
Now, Scott is assisting teams in various locations around the world who are planting similar “guest house ministries” for the purpose of bringing the good news of Jesus’ salvation to Israelis abroad.
Dr. Mitch Glaser
Dr. Mitch Glaser was born into a nominally Orthodox Jewish home in New York City at a time when views on life, death and religion were beginning to undergo major changes in American society. His religious roots were soon lost after his Bar Mitzvah at age 13 to the excitement and energy of the 1960s.
After dropping out of college in 1970, Dr. Glaser moved to California and was introduced to various Eastern religions which, while intriguing him, did not answer the questions of his soul. It was after two of his closest friends received Jesus as their Messiah that Dr. Glaser first heard the Gospel message. After reading the New Testament and studying Messianic prophecies in the Hebrew Scriptures, Dr. Glaser himself received Jesus in November 1970.
Dr. Glaser is married to Zhava, a Jewish native of Argentina. He has served in ministry for 40 years that has included serving with Jews for Jesus and Ariel Ministries. Since 1997, Dr. Glaser has served as president of Chosen People Ministries—one of the oldest and largest Messianic missions in the United States. Both Mitch and Zhava teach at the Charles Feinberg Center for Messianic Jewish Studies — a partnership between Chosen People Ministries and Talbot School of Theology. The Glasers have two daughters — Miriam and Jenni.
