Biography

Support Peter Parkas

"Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved." —Romans 10:1

Peter Parkas’ Jewish background comes from being raised by a Jewish stepmother. From the early age of five, Peter attended Jewish summer camps in both the United States and Israel. He was brought up with a strong emphasis on secular humanism.

In his search for meaning and purpose in life, Peter turned to various worldly pursuits and philosophies. It wasn't until 1984 that Peter was given a Bible, read it for himself, and became convinced it was God’s Word. Shortly thereafter, he met a Jewish believer who shared with him the saving message of Jesus the Messiah! This bearer of the Good News led him in a prayer of faith and then helped to disciple him. As God continued to work in Peter’s life and heart, he received from God a deep burden to reach the “lost sheep of the house of Israel.”

Since then, Peter has earned a Master’s degree in Jewish Studies and a PhD in Bible Apologetics. Dr. Parkas has been involved in Jewish ministry for almost 25 years and serves as the Northeast Ministry Representative for CJF Ministries. Peter and his wife reside in Metro New Jersey, near the Greater Metropolitan Area of New York City: home and workplace to some three million Jewish people—more than any city in the world, including Jerusalem and Tel Aviv!

Peter is married to Diann, a Jewish believer, who shares his vision for Jewish ministry. Diann holds a Master of Arts degree from NYU. Since their marriage in 1987, God has blessed them with four children.
