Dr. Jimmy DeYoung
Dr. Jimmy DeYoung has resided in Jerusalem, where he held full credentials as a journalist, for at least a portion of each year for the last twenty-three years.
Arriving there just three days prior to the Gulf Crisis in 1991, he weathered thirty-nine Scud attacks and 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, he brings with him the latest news from out of the Middle East with a unique blend of political, biblical, and prophetic insight that cannot be found in the media today.
After graduating from Tennessee Temple University in Chattanooga, TN, he joined with Jack Wyrtzen and Harry Bollback at Word of Life Fellowship in Schroon Lake, NY. While 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 five years, he was the vice-president and general manager of New York City’s first Christian radio station, WNYM. During his time at the station, he 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, he founded the Assembly at Jerusalem (a Bible preaching church that meets in Jerusalem).
Today, Dr. DeYoung travels the world, proclaiming the good news of Christ’s gift of eternal life and Christ’s soon return for his church. Dr. DeYoung uses the means of media, radio, television, books, the internet, and preaching in churches and assemblies around the world.
He is seen on the Day of Discovery television program which is produced in the Middle East. He is also heard on several networks, consisting of over 1,500 stations, with the latest reports from the Middle East. He can also be seen on the John Ankerberg Television program.
He is a noted conference speaker in the United States, Europe, and South America. He devotes several months out of each year to this conference schedule.
He has authored the best-selling book, Sound the Trumpets, and produced a number of audio and video materials (including his best-seller, Ready to Rebuild, a documentary on the building of the third temple).
He continues to monitor the most current events as they unfold in the Middle East and compares these current events to the prophetic truth of God’s Word.
He had the privilege of receiving his Doctorate from Tennessee Temple University in May of 1996. He also received his PhD from Louisiana Baptist University in May of 2000.
