Our Vision

Chosen People Ministries exists to pray for, evangelize, disciple

and serve Jewish people everywhere

and to help fellow believers do the same.

From Our International President,
Dr. Mitch Glaser

One of the challenges that the Jewish people have faced over the centuries is how to preserve our heritage while looking to the future. This may also sum up the goal of Chosen People Ministries. Although when compared to Jewish history, our more than 100-year-old existence seems a mere drop in the bucket of eternity, we must also look ahead - even as we act as responsible stewards of our traditions.

Our present growth is built upon the strong foundation established by the founders of Chosen People Ministries. In 1892, Rabbi Leopold Cohn, a recent immigrant to New York City from Hungary, was walking on the Lower East Side of Manhattan among thousands of other new Jewish immigrants when he heard a Jewish preacher proclaiming the Gospel in the Yiddish language. Rabbi Cohn stopped to speak with this man and eventually gave his heart to the Messiah. After receiving his theological training and leading his wife, Rose, to the Lord, Rabbi Cohn established the Brownsville Mission to the Jews.

From these humble beginnings, Chosen People Ministries now serves the Jewish people all over the world.

I am grateful for our heritage. Yet I also am able to rejoice that in many ways, Chosen People Ministries is now more vital than ever. We have changed some of our means of communication - I like to joke that Rabbi Cohn probably did not have as effective a website as we do today - but in the midst of change and utilizing modern technology, we continue to hold fast to the rabbi's vision of evangelizing and discipling Jewish people worldwide.

Our core doctrinal position has not changed in more than a century. We believe with all our hearts that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and that Jesus is the promised Messiah of Israel - and that the simple message of His death and resurrection has the power to transform the lives of Jews and Gentiles.

We have a great heritage and a bright future because God is faithful! With your prayers and partnership, we hope to keep proclaiming the Gospel until we see Him face to face.

For Zion's sake,

Dr. Mitch Glaser
