Fred & Eva Schweig (Florida)

Field Ministries Representatives / Gainesville, Florida

What is unique to your role at The Friends of Israel?

My ministry is predominantly located on the campus of The University of Florida which has the largest Jewish student population of any public university outside of Tel Aviv.

What inspires you most to do what you do for FOI?

Face-to-face conversations with Jewish and Gentile students enabling me to clearly declare the gospel to them.

What is one bit of wisdom you have for those who want to share the love of the Messiah with others?

Don't be reluctant to offend. The gospel IS offensive. Don't be afraid of rejection because you will often be rejected.

What Scripture compels you the most to do what you do?

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek” (Romans 1:16).

“...tribulation and anguish, on every soul of man who does evil, of the Jew first and also of the Greek; but glory, honor, and peace to everyone who works what is good, to the Jew first and also to the Greek” (Romans 2:9–10).

What books have you read (other than the Bible) that have impacted your spiritual life most?

Today's Gospel: Authentic or Synthetic? by Walter Chantry; The Attributes of God by A.W. Pink
