Michael became a part of our team in 2016, when he and his wife made aliyah. He is a Messianic Jewish Rabbi who pastored in two Messianic Jewish congregations in the USA for a total of 28 years. He and Patricia love blessing others and helping in the Kingdom of God. They have a passion for Israel and the Jewish people.

Originally from Germany, Daniel grew up in a ministry environment to parents serving as Pastors. At the age of 8, he moved with his family to live for a year in Jerusalem, Israel and attended a young and growing, local congregation named ‘King of Kings’. Daniel returned often to Israel to visit friends. In 2010, Daniel volunteered in a rehabilitation center in Tel Aviv where he did not only serve the patients but couldn’t take his eyes off a certain girl who he married soon after. Right after their wedding in 2012, God called Daniel and his wife Jalene, who is Canadian, back to Israel to serve as the Children and Youth Directors at King of Kings Community Jerusalem.
In addition to his Bachelor degree in Human Resources, Daniel also achieved his Master of Divinity: Pastoral Ministries in 2017. At the same time in 2017, Daniel stepped into the lead position at King of Kings Community Herzliya where he serves now with his wife Jalene as the senior pastor. In addition to this, Daniel leads the Israel Academy of Ministry (IAM) which is part of the King of Kings family. He supports the executive team as an advisor and oversees different departments within King of Kings Ministries. Daniel is a lover of all kinds of sports, but enjoys playing soccer as well as running. Even more than his hobbies, Daniel loves his family and enjoys spending time with his wife and two girls.

Veikko and Ulla joined the team in 2003, a few years after they moved to Israel from Finland. They have 4 children and 3 grandchildren, whose faces can be seen framed in their offices. When asked what they do at King of Kings, most people will reply “everything,” and they are correct. Veikko’s sense of humor and Ulla’s loving heart (and baking) are a treasure to the team, even if we aren’t always sure what they’re saying to each other in Finnish.
