Jewish believer in Christ speaks at First Baptist
Sep 21, 2012 - Staff
First Baptist Church of Riverton welcomes guest speaker David Sedaca to regular services at 10:45 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 30.
Sedaca represents Chosen People Ministries in New York City, which exists to support Jewish people who have embraced Jesus Christ. He is the vice president of Chosen People Ministries. A graduate of Harvard University, he had a successful career in the secular world before hearing the call to full-time ministry.
He has been a lecturer on Judaism and Jewish evangelism in several seminaries in United States, Canada, South America, Israel and Europe, and his writings and articles are published regularly in different theological journals and Christian magazines around the world.
He has preached to more than 15,000 people in sports stadiums in Latin America, and also to small groups of two or three in Africa and the Middle East. "His dynamic preaching and profound knowledge of the Bible from a Jewish perspective has made him a much sought-after speaker around the whorl," a Chosen People Ministries statement reads.
Sedaca served as executive secretary and CEO of the International Messianic Jewish Alliance, which is the worldwide fellowship of Jewish believers in Jesus. He is also the president of the Union of American Messianic Jewish Believers; the fellowship of Jewish believers from different churches and Messianic Jewish congregations.
His Riverton appearance is open to everyone. First Baptist Church is at the intersection for North First and West Sunset streets in Riverton.
