When Steven Ger was born, his great aunt Hilda whispered in his ear, "You are God's child. He has special plans for you." Hilda Koser had been in the ministry all of her life, and it was only natural that she would want Steven to follow in her footsteps. What is unusual is that she was Jewish, and so is Steven.
Steven's aunt, Hilda Koser, was the director of the Coney Island branch of the American Board of Missions to the Jews (now Chosen People Ministries) for some 40 years. She began her ministry by teaching woodworking to neighborhood Jewish children. Craft time led to story time -- Bible stories. When the children's Orthodox Jewish parents came to condemn her, Steven's aunt used their own Hebrew Scriptures to lead them to their Messiah!
Aunt Hilda is now with her Lord, yet she lived long enough to see her desire for Steven come true. As a child, he committed his life to Christ, becoming a fourth-generation Jewish believer. He answered the call to ministry, graduating in 1994 from Dallas Theological Seminary.
Steven Ger's passion for sharing the Messiah with Jew and Gentile alike has only grown with the years. He reports, "i guess you could say this passion is a tradition in my family! God allowed Aunt Hilda to see that His work would carry on into the next century through Sojourner Ministries."
Sojourner Ministries is committed to exploring the Jewish heart of Christianity with both Jew and Gentile. The Jewish heart of our faith is Jesus! People want to see their Messiah more clearly -- through Hebrew eyes. God is moving to create voracious hunger for our Jewish roots!
Steven has produced a series of messianic teachings, including a full-hour video with a unique and in depth look at the Last Supper. In this program, The Unleavened Messiah, he shows how Christ's reinterpretation of the Passover meal instituted the celebration of communion and announced a new era in human history!
Steven Ger has spoken in hundreds of churches, classrooms and homes, led annual tours to Israel, hosted a radio show, The Jewish Heart of Christianity, has interviewed for radio and television, published in journals, and directed invigorating messianic worship in a variety of settings. And Steven has published his first three books: a commentary on Acts entitled, The Book of Acts: Witnesses to the World, a commentary on Hebrews entitled, The Book of Hebrews: Christ is Greater, and The Popular Bible Prophecy Commentary (coauthor).
