Perry grew up without any religious background, but with a strong Jewish identity. While living in Texas he met Christians who challenged his notions about religion. The more he heard about God, he began to understand that a relationship with God was something that he needed.
On a trip to Israel, Perry saw the connections between the Land, the Bible, and Jesus come alive. As he prayed at the Western Wall he experienced a peace and rest he never had up until that point. That week, on the first night of Purim in Israel, Perry came to faith in the Jewish Messiah, Jesus.
