Javier is a pastor of a growing evangelical church in the Madera area. We help to support his work in Madera, Mexico.
Jeff Kran is a Jewish believer who was born in Chicago in 1962 and raised by secular Jewish parents. However, he was greatly influenced by his Orthodox Jewish grandfather who lived with them for some years and made sure that Jeff had the basis of a Jewish education. Jeff came to faith in 1982 through a study of the evidence for the truth of Scripture - particularly Messianic prophecy. Since then, he has been active in Bible teaching, conference speaking and congregation planting.
Jeff has a deep and long-standing burden for his Jewish people and has lectured and held open forums on college campuses and taught workshops on Jewish theological objections to the Gospel. Jeffrey joined the Mission staff full time in 2006. He and his wife, Marlene, have a vision for evangelism and to work with churches to equip believers to bring Jewish people to Messiah. The Krans have five children. Jeff completed his Masters of Divinity Degree with a focus in Messianic Jewish Studies at the Charles Feinberg Center in January 2011.
