Nadler, Sam & Miriam
Word of Messiah Ministries: Charlotte, NC
Sam Nadler was born in Queens, New York, into a Jewish family, being Bar Mitzvahed as a young man in the usual custom. However, shortly after this event, he gave up on any religious activities and spent his teen years in rebellion. He served a stint in Vietnam, returning as a drug user and seller and eventually wound up in California. It was there he first met a group of Christian believers, including some Jews who followed Jesus. In 1972, Sam himself became a follower of the Messiah and eventually went to Bible college. Soon after he met and married his wife, Miriam. Together, for more than 40 years, they have brought the Good News to Jewish people around the world through their organization, Word of Messiah Ministries.
