KEVIN GEOFFREY, born Kevin Geoffrey Berger, is the firstborn son of a first-generation American, non-religious, Jewish family. Ashamed of his lineage from childhood, he deliberately attempted to hide his identity as a Jew, legally changing his name as a young adult. After experiencing an apparently miraculous healing from an incurable disease, however, Kevin began to search for God. Eventually, in 1988, he accepted Yeshua as Messiah, a decision which would ultimately lead him to be restored to his Jewish heritage. Today, Kevin is a strong advocate for the restoration of all Jewish believers in Yeshua to their distinct calling and identity as the faithful remnant of Israel.
Kevin has been licensed by the International Alliance of Messianic Congregations and Synagogues (IAMCS), and ordained by Jewish Voice Ministries International (JVMI). He has taught in live seminars and conferences throughout the United States, as well as multiple Messianic congregations and synagogues. He has also served in congregational leadership, as well as been involved in such endeavors as congregational planting and leadership development. Kevin is best known as an author, having published seven books to date, including the Messianic Daily Devotional, The Messianic Life: Being a Disciple of Messiah, and Bearing the Standard: A Rallying Cry to Uphold the Scriptures. He is also the editor of the Messianic Jewish Literal Translation of the New Covenant Scriptures (MJLT NCS). In addition to writing about uniquely Messianic Jewish topics, Kevin’s clear and impassioned teachings focus on true discipleship, radical life-commitment to Yeshua, and championing the Scriptures as God’s perfect word.
Kevin is a husband, a father, and also the principal laborer of Perfect Word Ministries, a Messianic Jewish equipping ministry. He currently resides in Phoenix, Arizona, with his wife Esther and their four cherished sons, Isaac, Josiah, Hosea and Asher.
