Reformed, Baptist, Jewish and Christian
Available for Preaching and Seminars in 2010

Between the months of July – October 2010, Baruch Maoz and his wife, Bracha, will be driving through the USA and sharing with churches about his ministry. At this stage, their itinerary includes (in this order) Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana, West Virginia, North Carolina, southern Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Texas, Arizona, and California and the various States in between. Baruch is available for preaching and seminars. Interested churches are invited to contact Baruch via email and visit his website.

Tom Ascol writes: "Baruch and Bracha Maoz serve in the kingdom of Jesus Christ. Baruch has served as a pastor, publisher, author and church reformer in his homeland of Israel. He has ministered several times with our Grace Baptist Church family in Cape Coral and our people have come to love Bracha and him dearly. I highly recommend him and his ministry to any church that values expositional preaching and the gospel of God's grace."

About Baruch

Baruch Maoz is an American-born Jewish Christian, converted in Israel in 1963. He is married to Bracha, and they have three married daughters. Baruch was the founder-Pastor of Grace and Truth Christian Congregation, a Baptist church in Israel committed to the doctrines Founders churches hold dear. He has authored the Jewish Christian Occasional Papers, available on his website, and various books in Hebrew, Dutch and English.

Baruch is the editor of the Modern Hebrew Bible, and was a member of the editorial team for the New Hebrew Translation of the New Testament and of the Annotated New Hebrew New Testament. He initiated Mishkan, the International theological forum on Jewish evangelism, and translated into Hebrew books such as Knowing God, The Sovereignty of God, The God Who Is There and Screwtape Letters. His books in Hebrew include The Way of Salvation, Commentaries on Hosea, Jonah, Joel, Amos and Judges, The Youth Book, Jewish Identity in Christ and Life in the Spirit.

Baruch served as founder and chairman of the International Jewish Evangelical Fellowship and of Keren Tkuma, the national social aid fund in Israel. He founded the Fellowship of Hebrew Speaking Congregations and the Messianic Action Committee, which led the successful protest against proposed anti-Christian legislation in Israel.

In December 2008, Baruch retired from the Pastorate of Grace and Truth and, under the title of Soli Deo Gloria Ministries, has devoted his time to writing commentaries and theological books in Hebrew. At present, he is engaged in writing a commentary on Romans. His critique of the Messianic Movement has just been republished (in English) by Audubon Press, as has his devotional commentary on Jonah, the first of an intended series.

He and Bracha live in Israel, where he continues to preach and teach. He is particularly concerned over the impact which the Messianic Movement has had on the unity of the church and on recognition of the sufficiency of Christ's finished work, and in Christian preaching from the Old Testament.
