Dr. Greg Silverman is a multi-faceted musician, teacher and speaker, devoting his work to the kingdom of God. The following is an edited excerpt from his biography found on his website, gregsilverman.com:
Greg brings the Message of Yeshua the Messiah to both Jew and Gentile Believers through his anointed Worship Music, Music and Worship Seminars, and powerful Biblical Teachings regarding the Jewish roots of the faith. Greg’s love and enthusiasm for the Messiah Yeshua and for God’s people are evident in every teaching, concert, choral workshop, and speaking presentation he gives.
Having gained an interesting perspective on both Christianity and Judaism from growing up in an interfaith home, Greg remembers accepting Yeshua while visiting his grandmother’s church at eight years of age. Praise the LORD for a praying grandmother! As a teenager and college student he attended a wide variety of churches and gained a proficiency in gospel piano and singing during these years. He graduated from college at the University of Massachusetts with a B.A. in both Vocal Jazz & Gospel Music as well as Psychology. In Spring 2000, Greg was hired as an assistant music director to well-known gospel musician, Ron Metcalf, in New York City. While working with Ron, Greg was encouraged to seek out the Jewish people who knew Jesus. Little did Greg know that there even was a Messianic Jewish movement, let alone that God would one day call he and his wife into full time Messianic Jewish ministry.
In 2001, while studying classical choral conducting for a Master’s degree at Temple University, Greg was invited by a friend to visit Congregation Beth Yeshua in Philadelphia, PA. From the moment he arrived, he felt spiritually as though he had “come home.” Within a year of joining the synagogue, he met his beautiful wife, Rosa, who had been in the congregation for several years prior to Greg’s arrival. Greg and Rosa have joyfully become a quartet together with their two wonderful sons!
Greg ministered full time at Congregation Beth Yeshua from 2004-2010. In Summer of 2010, the Silverman family moved out west to Tucson, Arizona where Greg had been accepted into the prestigious University of Arizona doctoral program in Choral Conducting. Greg completed the doctoral degree in December 2013, and presently is the President of his own ministries. The purpose of Greg Silverman Ministries, Inc. (501c3 charitable organization) is to: 1) Share the Good News of Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) with both Jews & Gentiles, 2) Lead in excellent praise and worship both live and through media, 3) Train & equip other musicians and worship artists, and 4) Connect the Messianic Movement and the Church.
Greg has had opportunities to minister across the country and internationally, and he has been a worship leader at the national MJAA Messiah Conferences for about a decade. Broadcast appearances include TBN, Daystar, Jewish Voice, and the Inspiration Network. Greg released his first full-length album of original Messianic Jewish Music entitled Dry Bones in 2004, Revive in 2007, and two new singles None Like You and Floodgates in 2010. The ministry is on the verge of releasing a documentary movie about a piece of Hebrew classical choral music and Greg’s experience as a choral conductor, the Sacred Service Project.
