Pastor Eric Michael Teitelman is a Hebrew follower of Christ. He is a bi-vocational ordained pastor through the Southern Baptist Convention, and a licensed minister through the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel. He currently oversees the House of David Ministries, a Hebraic and Apostolic itinerant teaching and worship ministry focused on bringing Jewish and Gentile Christians together as One New Man in Christ Yeshua (Ephesians 2:14-16). He lives in Haymarket, Virginia with his wife Kim. They have two grown children. Prior to moving to Virginia he pastored a collegiate ministry at Chico State University in northern California.
Pastor Eric was born in the United States to Jewish parents, and raised in Israel for much of his childhood. While living in Israel he attended a school for rabbinical studies, and then returned to the United States to attend college.
He holds both U.S. and Israeli citizenship. His father is a descendant of the tribe of Levi from the house of Aaron. His mother is a descendant of the tribe of Judah from lineage of King David and the prophet Samuel.
In 2002 after reading the New Testament, Pastor Eric received Christ as His Lord and Savior, and shortly after was baptized in the power of the Holy Spirit. With a firm knowledge of Old Testament scriptures and a deep understanding of Jewish culture, he brings a Hebraic perspective to the New Testament teachings of Christ Yeshua. He also leads worship with an acoustic guitar, singing both contemporary Christian songs and Hebrew Psalms.
