to the Jewish Community and
Teaching Illustrating the Jewish Roots of Christian Faith
Peter Parkasí Jewish background comes from the fact that he was raised by a Jewish stepmother.
From the early age of 5, Peter attended Jewish summer camps in both the United States and
Israel. He was raised secular with a strong emphasis on social justice.
In a search for meaning and purpose in life, Peter turned to various
worldly pursuits and philosophies. It wasn't until the year 1984
when Peter was given a Bible and read it for himself that he
became convinced it was Godís Word. Shortly thereafter, he met a
Jewish believer who shared with him the saving message of the Messiah
Jesus! This bearer of the Good News led him in a prayer of faith and
then to disciple him. As God continued to work in Peterís heart and
life, he received from God a deep burden to reach the ďlost sheep of
the house of Israel.Ē
Since then, Peter has earned a Masterís degree in Jewish studies and
has been involved in Jewish ministry for over ten years. He is the
Northeast Ministry Representative for CJF Ministries. Peter and his family
recently located to Metro New Jersey, in the Greater Metropolitan Area
of New York City to begin outreach to the Jewish community.
This locale is the home and workplace to about 3 million Jewish people,
more than any city in the world including Jerusalem and Tel Aviv!
Peter is married to Diann, a Jewish believer, who shares his vision for
Jewish ministry. Diann holds a Master of Arts degree from NYU. Since
their marriage in 1987, God has blessed them with four children.
