Pastor Jeff was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan in 1969 but moved to Colorado shortly after his birth. He has lived in various parts of Colorado ever since. Pastor Jeff and his family moved to Colorado Springs after a youth group in the area greatly impacted his life, and God used that to call him into the ministry in Colorado Springs.
Pastor Jeff was called to the ministry when he was very young. He responded to the call as a senior in high school and then attended Bob Jones University in Greenville, South Carolina where he received his undergraduate degree in Pastoral Studies. He returned to seminary at Bob Jones to receive his master’s degree in Bible. Pastor Jeff and his wife, Nancy, served on staff at Grace Bible Church from 1993 – 2016. Pastor Jeff is committed to expository preaching. He has taught verse by verse through Romans, John, I Timothy, II Timothy, and Deuteronomy among others.
