Meet the Coaches

All Jewish Gentile Couples coaches are extensively knowledgeably on complicated interfaith issues. As Jewish people who believe in Jesus, our coaches have had to navigate multiple faith cultures and balance dual identities in their own lives. In addition, each coach has received specialized training in cross-cultural relationships and the unique challenges they pose. Meet a few of our coaches below:
