Who is the Kosher Pastor?
Matt McKeown is the Associate Pastor at the United Brethren in Christ Church (UBIC) in Holly Hill FL and the manager of Sound Mind Studios. His music is often featured in televised sports and events for the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, and Formula1 racing. He also has worked in ADR for programs like Hawaii Five-0, Law and Order SVU, and The Man in the High Castle.
In ministry, Matt has served on his denomination’s Youth Leadership team and on the national Human Sexuality Task Force. He has a passion for studying messianic Judaism and lives a messianic lifestyle — attending his local messianic synagogue, studying at Yeshivat Shuvu, eating kosher, and teaching from a messianic Jewish perspective.
He has also taught on tours of the Holy Land and has provided music for the Bless Israel Network. Matt has done voiceover work for FFOZ on their television show and is the voice of Torah Kids audio lessons as well as their books ‘Tent of David’ and ‘Elementary Principles.’ He is currently recording the audio version of the Complete Jewish Bible by David H. Stern.
The call on Pastor Matt’s life is an interesting one. The Lord is using him as a bridge between Christians and Jews. It is his desire to see Jewish people recognize Yeshua (Jesus) as the Jewish messiah and for Christians to recognize the Jewish foundation of their faith. Matt and his family live in the Daytona Beach area of Florida.
With the revolutionary release of Kosher Pastor we are now equipping thousands of Christians on their path to restoration. This is truly an historic release that coupled with Yeshivat Shuvu offers a complete education and discipleship platform for Jews and Gentiles alike.
-Rabbi Itzhak Shapira, Rosh Yeshiva at Yeshivat Shuvu
