From the Jews for Jesus website: We seek to relate to the church, asking for your prayers and financial participation. We need you to send us Jewish contacts and let us be an outsource to you in this regard especially. Many Christians who attend the local churches where we preach know Jewish people or work with colleagues who are Jewish. Our messages in churches are designed to help the believers know how to share with these friends, and to inspire them to do so. Christians also tell us that when they meet Jews who have found Messiah that they are encouraged that anyone can get saved!
