I understand the challenge of finding just the right speaker. In my prior rolls, I’ve been responsible for many events, from small and large churches, and corporate training sessions to large, arena-size, and multi-day conferences.
I quickly realized that success of an event came down to the quality of the speakers. If they hit it out of the park, we had a great event. If they didn’t, well … we had a not-so-great event.
Like you, I found myself spending hours researching speakers, to make sure we had just the right fit. My hope is that this page will make it easy for you to get the information you need to make the best decision possible.
Thanks for stopping by. Thanks also for considering me. I am honored.

A Little Bit About Me
I have been speaking publicly for more than 25 years and have keynoted hundreds of events. I have also appeared on dozens of television shows, including several on TBN and local ABC, NBC, CBS, and other networks. I have also been on more than 100 syndicated and local radio shows.
I have spent most of my career in Ministry, most recently as the Minnesota Director of Chosen People Ministries, International, the largest Jewish Mission organization in the world, and one of the oldest.
I now devote my time to writing, teaching, ministering, and speaking. In terms of my platform:
- My blog is focused on my ministry, specializing in provoking people to intentionally think through issues. It has 2000 visitors a month. About 3000 people subscribe to my weekly updates.
- I have written 15 books. My newest one, Jesus in the Old Testament, was released in March 2016. It is available as a Free Downloadable e-book for signing up for my mailing list on this site.
I have been happily married to my wife, Michelle, for eighteen years. We have one daughter and one son. We live outside of Minneapolis/Saint Paul. In my free time, I enjoy reading, researching and singing with my family.

Jesus in the Passover: Passover celebrates God’s redemption of His people from slavery in Egypt. However, it points to a greater redemption for Israel and for all mankind.
The Last Supper was itself part of a celebration of Passover. Knowing that He would be put to death in a few hours, Jesus told His disciples, “I eagerly desired to celebrate this Passover with you before I suffer” (Luke 22:15). At this celebration, He took elements of the Passover (the unleavened bread and the cup) and identified them as His body and blood, symbolizing His death.
Other elements of the Passover are important symbols as well. The shank bone of the lamb points to the Lamb of God (John 1:29). Indeed, Jesus is the Passover Lamb. Paul tells us that as often as we eat this bread and drink of this cup (elements of the Passover and the heart of the Last Supper or Communion), we proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes (1 Corinthians 11:26).

Jesus in the Old Testament: The center of the Bible is the living Messiah. Throughout its pages God, who inspired it, bears witness to the Person who unites all the strands of history, prophecy, poetry, symbolism, stories and even the names of God themselves, to bear witness of Messiah and his work of Salvation in the Earth. Finding Messiah in the very Jewish New Testament presents no difficulty, but finding Messiah in the Old Testament holds a greater challenge, but it doesn’t have to be a challenge at all! It’s important to see that Jesus himself read his Old Testament in this way. When he spoke to the two men on the road to Emmaus, we learn that “beginning with Moses and with all the prophets, He explained to them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures” (Luke 24:27).
And when he spoke to the Jerusalem Pharisees he boldly proclaimed, “Do not think that I will accuse you before the Father; the one who accuses you is Moses, in whom you have set your hope. 46 For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me, for he wrote about Me.” John 5:45-46
But how exactly do we find Jesus in our Old Testament? He is not named there is he? (actually he is), so how can we do it? More »
Knowing God Intimately: Tov Rose draws a compelling picture that reveals the true character, nature and person of the God of the Bible challenging Christians, Messianic believers and Jewish people alike.
Jesus said, “All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.” (Matthew 11:27 KJV).
If no one has known God the Father, then who have my Jewish ancestors worshiped?
More than being about God, it is about men and women longing to draw close to the Father of Jesus. More »
The Feasts of Israel: This can be presented in one or a series of messages that explain how the Messiah is related to the following Jewish feasts:
- Passover Deliverance from Egypt/Sin
- The Feast of Unleavened Bread The Bread of Affliction, becomes the Bread of Life
- The Feast of First Fruits When Jesus became the “First Fruits of the New Covenant between God and man” (1 Cor. 15:23)
- Rosh Hashanah(Feast of Trumpets), which celebrates the beginning of the Jewish Civil year.
- Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), which is considered the holiest day of the Jewish year.
- Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles/Booths), which recalls 40 years of wandering in the wilderness, living in tents (booths) and worshiping in a portable tabernacle. More »
Israel in Prophesy: One of the Bible’s greatest predictions about Israel has already come to pass. In 1948, Israel was reborn as a nation. The rebirth of the Jewish state should have put aside any doubts that God had abandoned the apple of His eye… More »
The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict: Since the Jewish people began returning to their traditional homeland, there has been constant struggle in the Middle East in the form of wars and terrorism. The Islamic world wants to destroy Israel, while the rest of the world wants to bring peace to the region by dividing Israel and Jerusalem. What most Christians do not know is the direct and ongoing connection between what is happening now to what began with the Nazis. More »
What Others Are Saying
Here is what a few others have said about me. These are just quick excerpts.
“Tov Rose fills in the gaps of God the Father. In the last days, the emphasis will be on understanding and knowing God the Father. Only someone with a Jewish understanding can bring us this end-time revelation, and Tov has done so.” – Sid Roth, Host of It’s Supernatural!
“Tov has captured and addressed two major issues facing our culture and the Christian church today; an inadequate and incorrect understanding of our Heavenly Father and the intimate relationship He desires with us, and the inaccurate perception that many men and women have about God’s created purposes for men. A true and biblical understanding of both issues, as presented by Tov, will result in a wonderful, fulfilling relationship with our Heavenly Abba (Daddy) and with one another in our earthly relationships.” – William Helland Pastor & Author of Pause Before the Pulpit
“Tov has a deep insight into the Father’s Heart. The kind of leader people who are pursuing His Presence can follow.” – Keith A Paul President Restoration Place Ministries Abbotsford, British Columbia
“I have known Tov for years and knew that he was a multi-talented individual. Little did I know that he was an author too! What a pleasant surprise to find a fresh, edgy, challenging and inspiriting call to the men of the 21st century to “Man Up!” Yet he does this without the typical approach of religious condemnation or psychological MANnipulation. He easily recaptures the lost art of story-telling to impart spiritual wisdom from the Holy Scriptures, the Book of Books, a very safe place to find truth and enlightenment on this oft overlooked topic. So I give him my full recommendation.” – Rabbi Ed Rothman, Eitz Hayeem Messianic Congregation, St. Louis Park, MN
