"Shalom! While I am Jewish on my mother's side (surnames: Schuster & Schnell), first and foremost I find my identity in The God of Yisra'el, in the scriptures of Yisra'el, and in my Rabbi Yeshua (Jesus), The Messiah. I received "s'michah" (ordination) through Messianic Bureau International as a Messianic Rabbi. Although, I am now associated with The United Messianic Jewish Assembly (www.umja.net). I am blessed to be married to my beautiful wife Nessa and together we have nine children.
Being a Messianic Rabbi is a call to greater responsibility and a fulfillment of the purpose that God has for my life. I see myself as a servant of El Elyon to accomplish His will and purposes. I lead, I teach, and make disciples in Yeshua's name, and for Him. The life I live is in obedience to the God of Yisra'el because of the love and great respect that I have for Him. May He be glorified, for I am not worthy. Apart from Him I am nothing and can do nothing. Let us come together, having the heart of Messiah Yeshua, and be used of God to build His Kingdom. Baruch HaShem!"
