Evangelism doesn’t end when a series of meetings comes to a close. In 2011, Jeff Zaremsky held a series of meetings for the Florida Conference Messianic congregations in St. Petersburg and New Port Richey. Since that time, many who attended have become members. One woman recently joined the Beth-El Shalom congregation in St. Petersburg—some three and one half years after the series of meetings ended.

Zaremsky’s sermon series, Surviving and Thriving in These Last Days, was unique in many ways:

The series began at a Jewish holiday season when there is an increase in visitor attendance.

Two locations simultaneously hosted meetings. One location met on Tuesday and Friday, and the other met Wednesday and Saturday.

After each meeting, a question and answer period sparked so much interest, Zaremsky extended the series to 31 meetings.

Everyone who starting attending the meetings continued to the end.

“We presented the topics in a Jewish-friendly manner with a very biblical foundation,” says Zaremsky. “We uplifted the Messiah in every meeting as the center and foundation of everything. We also presented a mixture of logic/emotion and truth/application in every meeting.”

Sermon DVDs recorded by volunteers are still winning souls for the Lord in the local congregations. DVDs are also sent to friends in other parts of the country. More information is available at www.JewishHeritage.net.
