Jeff comes by way of World Harvest Mission where for ten years he discipled church leaders in grace centered living. That was followed by fourteen years as pastor of his boyhood church, Crest Community in Wildwood Crest, New Jersey. He brings a still growing yet experienced ability to encourage others to be grounded in grace, so that the gospel fills every nook and cranny of their lives, including their vocational ministry.
Jeff’s most valuable asset is his partner, friend, sounding board and wife of forty years, Anna Marie. They have four adult daughters, and five granddaughters. Jeff and Anna Marie’s prayer is to be used to ground church leaders and others in grace and a compassion for not-yet-Christians that propels them into radical mission.
