Outreach 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.

Peterís ministry in churches includes teachings such as:

His messages demonstrate Godís love for Israel and why it is important to bring the Gospel of Messiah Jesus to His Covenant People. He is an excellent communicator of Godís Word, in both its historical and contextual meaning. Whether your Church is looking to get involved in Jewish outreach, needs a Missions Conference speaker or even Pulpit Supply in the New York Metro area, Peter is a gifted speaker whose enthusiasm for the Word of God will excite all who hear him.
