Meet Chaplain John McTernan
John McTernan, founder of Defend and Proclaim the Faith ministries, has spent thousands of hours with Jews and Muslims debating and corresponding in defense of the Gospel.
During numerous appearances on television, radio and in seminars, he has publicly defended Israel in light of Biblical prophecy. His current best selling book is As America Has Done To Israel.
Since 1975, he has been involved with the Pro-Life movement and is currently a Pro-Life leader in central Pennsylvania. And, in the early 1980′s, he co-founded International Cops for Christ where he serves as an ordained chaplain and evangelist.
He is author of the acclaimed book, God’s Final Warning to America, and co-author of the bestseller, Israel: The Blessing or the Curse. From his experience debating, John wrote the Only Jesus of Nazareth series. This series includes: Only Jesus of Nazareth Can Sit on the Throne of David and Only Jesus of Nazareth Can Be Israel’s King Messiah. Additionally, he has written several tracts, including, Muhammad or Jesus: The Prophet Like Unto Moses, and The Koran vs the Bible.
John founded Blessing Israeli Believers in 2008 after recognizing the Biblical Mandate to Bless the Believers in the Land. His love for the Jewish people is profound and a product of the love of our Father demonstrated through the Jewish Messiah Jesus. John prays that the entire body of Messiah will participate in this apostolic, prophetic, end times ministry.
It is apostolic because of the mandate given through the Apostle Paul. It is prophetic because it has been out of existence since the second century, but now according to the prophetic scriptures, the Jewish Believers are back in the Land! Most importantly, it is end times because this all is in the context, and points to, the second coming of Adonai Yeshua (Jesus Christ) to rule and reign from Jerusalem!
John is married and the father of four children and five grandchildren. He resides in central Pennsylvania.
