Meet Dr. and Mrs. Jimmy DeYoung
Dr. Jimmy DeYoung resided in Jerusalem
for at least a portion of the year each year for the last 23 years where he held full credentials as a journalist in the second most populated journalistic city in the world. Arriving there just 3 days
prior to the Gulf Crisis in 1991, he weathered 39 Scud attacks. Jimmy
gave reports nationwide on several networks during the Gulf Crisis. He
has his finger on the pulse of what is considered the media "hot spot"
of our time, the Middle East. On his travels throughout the US and around
the world, Jimmy brings with him the latest news from out of the Middle
East with a unique blend of political, biblical, and prophetic insight
that can not be found in the media today.
After graduating from Tennessee Temple
University in Chattanooga, TN, Jimmy joined with Jack Wyrtzen and
Harry Bollback at Word of Life
Fellowship in Schroon Lake, NY. There he spent the next twelve years
in many staff positions including staff evangelist, host of Word of Life
Inn, and producer of radio programs heard worldwide.
For the next 5 years Jimmy was the Vice-President and
General Manager of New York City's first Christian
radio station, WNYM. During his time at the station,
Jimmy was the producer and host of a daily talk program
in the #1 media market in America.
Upon first arriving in Israel, moved by the plight of the Israeli people
and by the spirit of God, Dr. DeYoung founded the Assembly
at Jerusalem, a bible preaching church that meets in the holy city.
Today, Jimmy travels the world proclaiming the good news of Christ's gift
of eternal life and soon coming return for His Church, using the means
of media, radio, television, books, and the internet, as well as by preaching
in Churches and assemblies across the globe.
