Holding a Prayer Book

Our Past and Our Future

The Ten From The Nations is an organization dedicated to recognizing the debt that Christianity owes to the Jewish people.  That debt is owed both due to the atrocities committed against them and the rich heritage that is the root of our Christian faith.  While we may not be the instigators of anti-semitism, we carry with us the legacy of centuries of such hate.  The Ten From The Nations organization is working tirelessly to root out anti-semitism and to work to restore the relationship between Christians and Jews.​

Our Board of Directors

Our Board of Directors represents many backgrounds but a unified passion for reconciliation.  You will find retired military and pastors, entrepreneurs and engineers, teachers and scholars.  Our board is made up of people who have studied religion, history, and politics.  They have pored over the Tanakh, the Messianic Writings, the Talmud, and countless Christian works.

We are thankful for their work and dedication.

Samuel Wearp

Samuel Wearp has been involved with many different organizations over the years, all with one main theme, reconciliation between Jewish and Christian communities. Starting in 2011, he worked with his father, who was the National Coordinator for the March of Remembrance.  They traveled across the US and even internationally, calling on people to remember the atrocities of the Shoah (Holocaust) and reminding the world “Never again!”


That same year was his first trip to Israel, with Hayovel, an organization that serves the farmers in Judea and Samaria — the heartland of Israel. After just one trip he knew that his life would revolve around seeing Israel’s restoration as is prophesied in the Bible.


Many trips and years later, he is actively involved in the work happening in Israel through their family business, Blessed Buy Israel; a company that supports small family businesses throughout the heartland of Israel.


He is a speaker and writer with an undying passion for Israel.
