Meet Dr. and Mrs. Jimmy DeYoung
Jimmy DeYoung resided in Jerusalem
for 12 years where he held full credentials as a journalist in the second most
populated journalistic city in the world. Arriving there just 3 days prior to
the Gulf Crisis in 1991, he weathered 39 Scud attacks. Jimmy 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, Jimmy brings with him the latest
news from out of the Middle East with a unique blend of political, biblical,
and prophetic insight that can not be found in the media today.
After graduating from Tennessee Temple University
in Chattanooga, TN, Jimmy joined with Jack Wyrtzen and Harry Bollback at Word
of Life Fellowship in Schroon Lake, NY. 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 5 years Jimmy was the Vice-President and General Manager of New
York City's first Christian radio station, WNYM. During his time at the station,
Jimmy was the producer and host of a daily talk program in the #1 media market
Upon first arriving in Israel, moved by the plight of the Israeli people and
by the spirit of God, Dr. DeYoung founded the Assembly
at Jerusalem, a bible preaching church that meets in the holy city. Today,
Jimmy travels the world proclaiming the good news of Christ's gift of eternal
life and soon coming return for His Church, using the means of media, radio,
television, books, and the internet, as well as by preaching in Churches and
assemblies across the globe.
Jimmy has met and interviewed many international leaders including: Israeli
Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, Israeli former Foreign Minister Shimon Peres, former
Jerusalem Mayor Ehud Olmert, former Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, former
Defense Minister Moshe Arens, Jordan's Foreign Minister Marwan Muasher, and
the late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.
Jimmy is seen on the Day
of Discovery television program, which is produced in the Middle East. He
is also heard daily and weekly on radio and internet, with the latest reports
from the Middle East on several networks consisting of over 800 stations.
Jimmy is a noted conference speaker in the United States, Europe, and South
America, and he devotes several months out of each year to this conference schedule.
He has authored the best selling book, "Sound
The Trumpets", produced a number of audio and video materials, including
his best seller, "Ready To
Rebuild", a documentary on the building of the Third Temple. Jimmy 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.
Jimmy 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.
