Our 46th North East Conference warmly welcomes Alex Jacob to Gateshead.
Alex was born in London in 1961 and became a Christian in his early teenage years. Following on from this, a call to Christian ministry developed and Alex began training for ordination as a Minister within the United Reformed Church and was ordained in 1985. He began his first ministry in a pastorate based in Lichfield.
In 2006, Alex was appointed as a Director of The Churches Ministry among Jewish People (CMJ), before becoming CMJ's CEO in July 2011. In his current role he has specific responsibilities for Advocacy and Evangelism. Alex has a well-respected teaching and pastoral ministry and has been actively involved within the field of Jewish-Christian relations for many years.
His research interests focus upon the Jewish roots of the Christian Faith, the emergence of the contemporary Messianic Jewish movement.
He is the author of The Case for Enlargement Theology, Receive the Truth , Prepare the Way , and Walking an Ancient Path.
Alex lives in Cambridgeshire and is married to Mandy, and they have three grown-up children. He has wide interests including travel, films, music and sport.
We look forward to seeing you for this special day of ministry, praise and fellowship. SHALOM!
