I was born in San Rafael CA. I grew up in Southern California mostly, south Orange County near the coast and spent some time in Northern CA. I have also lived in MO and CO. I was taught Torah and the rest of Scripture from an early age. I am of the tribe of Yahudah/Judah and I am a third generation on one side of walking in “the Way” and I am not certain how far back the other side of my family was walking in Torah. I was an entrepreneur from a young age and owned my first real business at age 21. It was a security company for homes and businesses. Over the years, I owned a few other companies, marketing, restaurant and electrical. In the electrical company, I had some nice jobs with the “Coast Guard, Army Reserve and multi-million dollar homes”. I had the pleasure of going to Israel for a couple of months and studing there during Shavout and Sukkot. My Dad has also been a Pastor for many years. I gave my first sermon at age 24 and just continued teaching from there. Yah put it on my heart that it was time to stop working for myself and time to start working for Him. I was then ordained in accordance to scripture (Books of Titus) as an elder/pastor in 2011. I am not into titles though and actually prefer to just be called “brother Jay”. I work in ministry almost every day when I am feeling up to it and I teach for free. I don’t take a salary and I don’t charge for any of my written, audio or video teachings. If you would like to know more about me or the ministry that Father Yah has me doing please let me know.
