God is at work through the ministry of the International Board of Jewish Missions. IBJM was founded in 1949 by Dr. Jacob Gartenhaus.
Brought up in an Orthodox Jewish home in Austria, Gartenhaus moved to New York City in his early twenties where he trusted Jesus as Messiah and Savior after reading Isaiah 53.
Persecuted and beaten by friends and forsaken by his family, the young Jacob was led by God to become an ambassador to his own people, establishing the IBJM ministry.
Built on the biblical command and priority for Jewish evangelism found in Scripture, the vision of Dr. Gartenhaus was two-fold.
First, he desired to assist and equip existing local churches in fulfilling the Great Commission, by reaching both Jewish and Gentile people with the gospel. Secondly, his heartbeat was to see new local churches established in and near to Jewish communities.
Today, IBJM world headquarters are in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The ministry has grown over the years with workers now in many U.S. cities and in 18 countries across the globe.
