Ariel ben-Lyman HaNaviy

Ariel ben-Lyman HaNaviy was born in Denver Colorado in 1967, the third oldest of seven children. Although his father is not Jewish, his mother is a Messianic Jew and soon after marriage, his father also accepted Messiah. His father went on to become a minister, and his mother, a Sunday-school superintendent. Ariel came to trust in the Messiah Yeshua at the age of eleven, while attending Mile High Baptist Church and School. After graduating salutatorian of his high school class in 1983, he went on to attend Liberty University on a scholarship to study radio communication.  He put college on hold in 1987 to begin his career as a radio announcer at Colorado Christian University Radio, KWBI, FM 91.1. During this time he also began church work as an intern Sunday-school minister, teaching the Jewish roots of Christianity, at House of Joy Miracle Deliverance Church in Denver. He resigned from KWBI in 1995.

He joined the Army in 1996, and later was appointed as the Jewish lay-leader for Jewish Military personnel at Fort Rucker, Alabama. He retired from the Military Chaplains in 2000.  He eventually finished college after switching majors and now holds a BA in Psychology with a minor in Computer Information Systems and is CompTIA certifed in A+, Network + and Server+, and holds a current Top Secret Clearance status.  He currently works for Kehilat T'nuvah (The Harvest) as an adjunct Torah Teacher, writer, research analyst, co webmaster, and podcast producer. In the past he was the Shabbat chazzan (cantor), biblical Hebrew teacher, Leadership Training School instructor, and frequent guest on the radical weekly radio show called Torah Talk.   He has helped to produce television shows on public access media that promote Torah from a Messianic perspective.  His home congregation, Kehilat T'nuvah features Mark McLellan as the Senior Messianic Pastor.

To further enhance his leadership abilities, he is accomplishing a variety of practicums in coordination and under the supervision of Kehilat T’nuvah in Thornton Colorado.  He is happily married to his wife, Sookie, and, as of September 2013, resides in South Korea.
