SWC Mourns the Loss of Pastor Jack Hayford

January 10, 2023

The Simon Wiesenthal Center notes with sorrow the passing of Rev. Jack Hayford. Pastor Jack, who was the founder of King's University and the Church On The Way, spoke with incredible force, conviction, and elegance. He electrified crowds who responded to his passion for the presence of G-d in our lives. He was a powerful friend of the State of Israel and the Jewish people, not despite his Christianity, but because of it. The Jewish people will sorely miss his friendship and assistance.
