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 1985, he went on to
attend Liberty University on a scholarship to study radio communication. In 1987 he
began 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.
Upon joining the Army in 1996, he also answered the call to begin his formal studies in
becoming a Messianic Jewish Rabbi, attending Messianic Bible Institute-Yeshiva in
Virginia Beach, Virginia. Appointed as the Jewish lay-leader for Jewish Military
personnel at Fort Rucker, Alabama, he also accepted s'mikhah (laying on of hands,
hence ordination, grant of authority) as the rabbi of Dothan Messianic Congregation in
Alabama, from the outgoing rabbi. He retired from the Military Chaplains in 1999.
