Jeff utilizes his twenty years experience as a Pastor/Church Planter as well as his years in mainstream corporate America at such organizations as Navistar International Transportation and Rubbermaid to share practical, biblical truths that can be implemented personally and in the life of churches and business organizations.

Jeff labels himself as a Missionary Writer. His definition of being a Missionary Writer is – “A Christian missionary’s job is to spread the good news and love of Jesus Christ. They are willing to do so at a great cost, some at the cost of their own life. They believe have a message worth dying for and will do whatever it takes to spread that message. That is the kind of writer I want to become. I believe I have a message that people need to hear and I believe so strongly in that message, that I am willing to sacrifice for it to be heard.”
Jeff serves as the Cleveland City Coordinator for Send North American with the North American Mission Board in Cleveland and has established church planter training centers that focus on the church planting in the Cleveland Metro area.
He is married to his wonderful wife Julie, and they have two awesome daughters, Sarah and Emily, a wonderful son-in-law Matt, a terrific grandson, Caleb and two beautiful granddaughters, Ellie and Addie.
