Hey There

And so the dialogue begins each week. 9,000 miles apart, Pastor Dave McGarrah joins a guest each week from Israel to the U.S. to bridge the distance between Jews and Christians. Originally broadcasting to over 100,000 listeners on radio stations across the United States, and now to an expanded audience through a worldwide podcast, a Christian pastor and an Orthodox Jew seek to inspire and enlighten, opening listeners’ minds and hearts to deeper levels of faith. Always respectful, but never shying away from real differences, ours is a new kind of religious dialogue based on authentic understanding and mutual respect. Whether we’re discussing Biblical lessons for our times, on-the-ground events in Israel, ideas for living a meaningful life, the different worldviews of Judaism and Christianity, or questions our listeners ask us – if it’s about God and His world, it’s a conversation for The Teacher and the Preacher.

Dave McGarrah

Dave McGarrah is the Senior Pastor at Deer Flat Church in Caldwell, Idaho. Dave has been in active and ongoing ministry as a pastor and teacher for decades. Dave has traveled to Israel nearly 40 times, introducing hundreds to the Holy Land, and he loves to share the Israel experience with all who would like to see the Holy Land for themselves.

Dave and his wife, Jerri, founded Master Minded Ministries as a non-profit, ten years ago. Master Minded Ministries came into being to help the Christian community understand the need to learn about our Jewish roots, and to love and support Israel and the Jewish people. Each year, our listeners’ generous donations to Master Minded Ministries keep The Teacher and the Preacher on the air.
