Missionary Murray Tilles

Missionary Murray Tilles will be speaking on Sunday November 15 at 10a.


 Murray Tilles, director of Light of Messiah Ministries in Atlanta, GA, is a Jewish believer  originally from North Carolina. He was born and raised in a traditional Conservative Jewish  home. Murray has been a believer for 40 years. He accepted his Messiah at the University of  North Carolina in Chapel Hill where he graduated in 1982 with his degree in Economics. He has  been a missionary to the Jewish people for over 35 years, spending seven years as a staff worker  with the ministry of Jews for Jesus. Three of those years were spent with the Liberated Wailing  Wall mobile evangelistic team, which he led. He has ministered in thousands of churches in all 48  continental United States as well as in Canada, South Africa, England, and Israel. God has been  faithful, as many Jewish people have come to know their Messiah through Murray's work.  Murray has earned an M. Div. and an M.A. in Counseling from Trinity Evangelical Divinity  School in Deerfield, IL. He and his wife Alana have two children, Nathan Asher (27) and Shayna  Ariel (24). 

 Light of Messiah Ministries is the evangelistic witness and outreach to the Jewish  community he founded in 1991 and is directing. Our burden is to reach "the Lost Sheep of the  House of Israel". Light of Messiah Ministries’ focus is on “relational evangelism,” meeting Jewish  people through Gentile Christians in the local church who have Jewish friends. In order to  facilitate this vision Light of Messiah Ministries is establishing Jewish Ministry Teams in local  churches, conducting outreaches that help Christians connect with their Jewish friends in  culturally relevant ways, and training Christians how to more effectively build their relationships  with their Jewish friends. The main goal of our work is to enter into these relationships, meet  these Jewish people one on one, and open the Scriptures to see how Jesus is the way of salvation  for all people. Our heart's desire, like Paul's, is to see our people saved. That is our burden at  Light of Messiah Ministries.

Since coming to Atlanta Murray speaks in over 80 churches a year helping his brothers and  sisters in Christ understand the Jewish roots of our faith through Passover services, other  messages, and seminars. 

Light of Messiah Ministries is governed by a Board of Directors and is recognized by the  IRS as a 501 (c) (3) ministry.
