ABOUT

The primary purpose of Toronto Jewish Mission is to share the belief that Jesus Christ is the promised Messiah of Israel with as many as possible, with a priority to the Jewish people.

 

To empower the Church with Jewish sensitivities and sensibilities to do the same.

Equipping the church to “Always be prepared to give a Defence.” Of what they believe.

 

 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.     (Romans 1:16)

TEAM
ALAN FRIESNER

LEADER, MISSIONARY

I was born and raised in a middle-class Jewish family here in Toronto.  Although we were traditional, we were not at all religious. As a teenager, I rebelled against God and chose to call myself an atheist, proclaiming, “God is a creation of man, man is not a creation of God.” As I pursued wealth and happiness by owning and operating various businesses, I came to realise that helping other people made me much happier than money ever could.

I had a life-changing epiphany as an adult, and came to know Jesus as my Messiah.  I now say, “if Jesus is the Christ of the Church, then He is the promised Messiah of Israel. If Jesus is not the promised Messiah of Israel He is not the Christ,” for they are one and the same in the Scriptures. 

After following my heart for a few years and doing missionary work in Kenya, I answered the Lord's call on my life, which involved sharing the gospel with Jewish People. 

I now serve as a full-time missionary and am leading the Toronto Jewish Mission. In addition to sharing with Jewish people directly, I love to teach others how to share the gospel not only with Jews but with anyone.  My wife Esther supports me in every way possible, volunteering her time to assist in any way possible. She has a heart for Jewish people,caring about their salvation. Her gift of hospitality is second to none.
