Jeremy and Lissa Smith were called to Israel in 2003. For Jeremy, whose father was Jewish, immigration was a homecoming. Jeremy is on the board of Intercessors for Israel and Makor HaTikva, a Messianic school in Jerusalem. He founded Shepherd’s Heart Israel, an indigenous ministry raised up to serve believers in the land.
Jeremy and Lissa have been teaching and counseling believers in Israel. Previously, Jeremy served with Ellel Ministries in England for 11 years. Lissa served with a ministry in the U.S. and a congregation in London before counseling alongside Jeremy at Ellel. Jeremy, Lissa and their six children live near Jerusalem.
