Michelle Beadle is a Jewish believer in Yeshua (Jesus) and the daughter and granddaughter of Holocaust survivors. Born and raised in New York City, she received Jesus as her Messiah and Redeemer in 1974 during her senior year at Cornell University. She has a Master's degree in Social Work from Tulane University and a Master's degree in Missiology and Jewish
Studies from Fuller Theological Seminary.
Michelle joined CJF Ministries in 1994 as a full-time outreach worker in New Orleans and its surrounding areas, representing CJFM in the southeastern region of the United States. Her ministry focuses primarily on bringing the Good News to "the lost sheep of the house of Israel" and sharing the Jewish roots of Christianity in conferences, churches, schools, Bible studies, and women's groups. Her work includes one-on-one Bible studies with Jewish persons who are interested in learning what the Bible has to say about the Messiah; the discipleship of new believers; and tract distribution at various locations throughout the greater New Orleans area—including the campuses of Tulane University and the University of New Orleans. Michelle also leads small group Bible studies.
Along with her husband, David, and two children Michelle planted the first Messianic Jewish Congregation in the city of New Orleans.
