Marcello Araujo was born and raised in a Jewish family in Ecuador, South America.
As he grew up, this nice Jewish boy became a political activist who wanted to change the world through Marxism.
Marcello studied drama and eventually formed a politically-oriented theatre troupe designed to spread the “good news” of the gospel according to Marx.However, in 1992, Marcello heard the true Good News and was transformed by his relationship with Jesus the Jewish Messiah.
Marcello has said, “I wanted to change the world through Marxism, not knowing that God wanted me to be part of His world-changing plan, by sharing His love and the true Gospel, the Gospel of life, the Gospel of Yeshua.”
Today, Marcello uses drama and other creative means to effectively communicate the Good News of Messiah to the lost sheep of Israel.
Chosen People Ministries (Canada) is pleased to have Marcello and his wife, Diana, on our team in the Greater Toronto Area.Together, they bring many years of ministry experience and a passion for Jewish evangelism.

Messiah in the Passover … is a meaningful portrait of man’s redemption through Messiah as seen through the vehicle of the traditional Jewish Seder.This program demonstrates how Christ fulfills the eternal plan of salvation for all men and how He instituted the Lord’s Table at the last Passover He celebrated with His disciples.It can be a moving and challenging opportunity to invite people to receive Messiah Jesus as Saviour, Lord and King.There are several ways to present this program, from a simple demonstration with or without a communion service to a full banquet.
Romans 1:16 – A Call to Evangelism … The Gospeloriginated in God’s heart before the foundation of the world (Ephesians 1:4).So, the Gospel is the Good News from Good for everyone … to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
Jewish Evangelism Seminar … How to share the Gospel with your Jewish friends (and others) is a workshop or a presentation that will encourage and equip Gentile believers to share the Good News of Messiah.It is appropriate as a workshop or sermon.
The Righteous Gentile
… The actions of the Roman centurion (Luke 7:1-10), the most feared and brutal professional Roman soldier, prompted Jesus to declare, “I tell you, not even in Israel have I found such faith.”
The Roots of Communion … Ideal for a communion service.Isaiah the Prophet declared, “I am ruined!For I am a man of unclean lips and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the LORD Almighty.”This is the model for communion with God.A great confession.A moment of restorative cleansing.
