Born in Lansing, Michigan in October 1957, Jeff is the youngest of four children and because of the age-gap between he and his siblings, was virtually raised as an only child. Because he spent so much time traveling with his parents, he was able to see the example of a healthy marriage and the power of a husband who loves his wife. His parent's example and the Lord's work in his heart when he came to Christ at twenty-five year of age, stirred up a personal mandate for Jeff to demonstrate Christ's love to his wife and children. His unconditional love has been a living inspiration for many young men and women and married couples.
Jeff has his BA n Management and Organizational Development from Spring Arbor University in Spring Arbor, MI and received his ministry training at Rhema Bible Training Center in Tulsa, OK. He is licensed and ordained through RMAI.
Prior to being called into the pastorate, Jeff's professional background includes working as a commercial pilot and flight instructor, as well as being a principal partner in an industrial lighting agency for 14 years. In 1986, he left the business world to follow his call to the ministry.
