Join me in saving lives in Israel
Rev. Jerry Clark is known for his passion and unwavering voice and support for Israel, urging Christians to be like the young Jewish orphan who became Queen Esther and saved the Jewish people from the danger of an ancient Holocaust in Persia 2,500 years ago because she no longer chose to remain silent.
Referring to Esther 4:14, Rev. Clark reminds Christians that they, too, can be instruments used by God – Esthers, if you will – “for such a time as this” when Israel and the Jewish people suffer in distress. He urges Christians to pray for the peace of Jerusalem; to speak out against anti-Israeli, anti-Semitic propaganda; to learn about their Jewish roots; and to support and financially bless non-profit humanitarian causes, especially Heart to Heart Israel, an outreach of American Friends of Magen David Adom, an organization dedicated to saving lives in Israel.
In ministry since 1987, Rev. Clark served on the pastoral staff at Calvary Temple in Fort Wayne, Ind., for 14 years. While at Calvary Temple, he made his first and a life-changing journey to Israel in 1997. Rev. Clark moved to Chicago in 2001 and worked for the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews for 11 years, raising funds for humanitarian projects in Israel.
Since 1997, Rev. Clark and his wife, Sandy Thorn Clark, who make their home in Florida, have led dozens of Bible-based tours to the Holy Land to re-trace the steps and ministry of Jesus and to experience modern day Israel.
Rev. Clark joined the staff of American Friends of Magen David Adom, headquartered in New York City, in early 2016. He is director of AFMDA’s Interfaith Outreach campaign, an outreach to raise funds to supply ambulances to save lives in Israel.
