Reared in a Reformed Jewish family in Memphis, Tennessee, Jack Reiss was taught Hebrew and trained in a local synagogue. Early in life, Jack expressed a desire to become a rabbi. However, during his freshman year of high school, Mrs. Alva Johnson presented him the gospel. He received Jesus as his personal Savior and Messiah. This decision caused many problems because his family was steeped in Jewish tradition. There was difficulty in the family business and other forms of opposition continued until Jack left home for military service. Before entering the ministry, Dr. Reiss worked as a public relations representative for Western Electric. Inc. Since 1969 Dr. Reiss has been engaged in revivals, Bible conferences, Passover demonstrations/presentations, and Jewish evangelism. Baptist World Missionary Outreach Ministries, Inc. (B.W.M.O.M.) was founded in 1976 as a result of a burden to print Gospel literature to reach Jewish people and to assist local churches in Jewish evangelism. Years later the borders of BWMOM were enlarged to include a global outreach to the Gentiles. The scope of the outreach has changed but the work is still the same, "…testifying to the Jews and also to the Greeks." (Acts 20:21)
