Love For His People ministry
On July 1, 2010, Steve Martin left the third ministry he had worked for in the past 24 years (5 years – Vision for Israel – Barry and Batya Segal; 14 years – Mahesh and Bonnie Chavda Ministries/All Nations Church in Charlotte, North Carolina, and 8 years total – Derek Prince Ministries (Ft. Lauderdale and Charlotte). Some were simultaneous years.
Under the direction of the Lord Jesus, we started a new ministry, co-founded by my good wife Laurie and me. We called it Love For His People (officially formed in April 2010 with our USA non-profit, 501(c)3 approval) – primarily to bless the Jews of Israel, and specifically the believers within the nation – those who have come to acknowledge that Yeshua is the Messiah, HaMashiach.
As non-Jews, Gentiles, goyim, Christian Zionists (whatever label we have!), we began the organization/ministry to stand strong for the Jewish state of Israel, Yisrael – the Land of Israel. In this world, with nations continually becoming more anti-Semitic daily, we have been called, as the prophetic word in 2004 was spoken over us, as a “scepter for Israel.”
