Eitan Shishkoff and his wife Connie came to faith in Yeshua in 1972 while farming as hippies in the high mountains of the western USA. The Messiah restored their Jewish heritage and they served on the Beth Messiah Maryland leadership team from 1982-1992. In 1992 the Shishkoff family made aliyah, settling in the Haifa Bay area of Israel, where Eitan founded Tents of Mercy (Ohalei Rachamim) as a Hebrew-speaking Messianic community and humanitarian aid center. Tents of Mercy has grown to a network of five inter-related congregations.
Eitan also serves as founding director of “Katzir” (Harvest), a national equipping ministry for Israeli Messianic teens, serving over 40 local congregations. These youth events led him to envision “Fields of Wheat,” a soon-to-be-established national equipping center. Located in the Galilee, the center will host the Jewish and Arab believers of Israel through camps, conferences, retreats, and celebrations.
He authored the book “What About Us? The end-time calling of Gentiles in Israel’s revival.” In Eitan and Connie’s 49 years of marriage they’ve been blessed with four children and nine grandchildren.
