Vincent Morgan was born and grew up in the Mojave Desert town of Boron, California. He received his BA from Biola College (now Biola University). He studied Hebrew at Ulpan Akiva, Netanya, Israel. Post graduate work was completed at Jaffray School of Missions (now Alliance Theological Seminary). He studied Russian through private teachers in NY. Vincent also worked as a volunteer on the excavations at Masada while he was a student in Israel. Vincent and his wife, Maryam, live in Queens, NY City where they are engaged in ministry under Missions Door, which is based in Denver, Colorado. Pastor Morgan has planted two Russian-speaking congregations, beginning his first one using a Bible he could not read and teaching in a language he couldn’t speak. Still, God honored that commitment and many people from the former Soviet Union came to faith in Jesus as Messiah and Savior. The Morgans’ ministry includes numerous Bible studies, the “Spiritual Club” at Parker Jewish Institute (the long-term care facility of Long Island Jewish Hospital) a monthly hymn sing in their home and street ministry in the Coney Island area of Brooklyn. Their main goal is to share the Gospel with Jewish people, but their unique ministry also includes people from many different ethnic, linguistic and cultural backgrounds. Language and culture differences are never seen as a barrier in their desire to share the love of Jesus, but as a means to identify with these people. Besides ministry in NY City, the Morgans work with several congregations in Israel and take ministry trips there frequently. Vincent’s and Maryam’s many interests also include mechanical music. They are active in the Automatic Musical Instrument Collectors’ Association (AMICA) and the Music Box Society, Intl. (MBSI).
