Jeff was born in Chicago, but got to Texas as fast as he could. He placed his faith in Christ at an early age and grew up attending Hill Country Bible Church. God has brought Jeff through some trials and has taught him to trust Jesus in all circumstances. Jeff attended college at the University of Mary Hardin Baylor (Go Cru!) and then attended Dallas Theological Seminary where received his Masters in Christian Education in 2008. Jeff previously has served as a Children’s Pastor and Pastor of Student ministry in the DFW area.
In 2002, Jeff met his wife, Nikki, on church retreat and they were married in 2004. In August 2013, God grew their family with the addition of their son, Brenner. Jeff loves spending time with his family, sports (playing and watching), reading, and coming up with creative ways to share the gospel. Nikki and Jeff especially love to take off and explore the little towns in Texas and to build furniture together.
