Early life and career
Comfort was born to a Jewish mother and a father who he described as "a Gentile [who] was open to the things of God". His parents put "Methodist" on his birth certificate because his mother feared the possibility of "another Hitler" but he was given no religious instruction as a child. According to Ray Comfort's blog, after finishing high school at 17, he worked in a bank, and began a successful business when he was 20. He "came to know the Lord" at 22, and began seven years training at a local church, after which he was ordained as a full-time pastor. He then spent three and a half years pastoring in Christchurch, New Zealand, and 12 years preaching open-air in the city's Speaker's Corner. Beyond this he has no formal training or theological degree. He says that it was during this time that he began receiving invitations to speak throughout the country, and in other countries. In 1989, accepted an invitation to the join the pastoral staff at the non-denominational Calvary Chapel in Southern California. Ray Comfort still continues to identify himself as a Jew.
