Jeff and his wife Star were led to Adventure Community Church in 2005. Before coming here, the two served in Albania with Youth With A Mission for four years. As pastor, Jeff oversees the spiritual growth of those in the Adventure Church Community. His passion is to see all people growing in their relationship with God and their understanding of His Word, whether they are still seeking to know Christ or have been following Jesus for years. Jeff and his wife Star have five children. Family life is vital to them and they enjoy opportunities to connect as a family. They view their role as parents as the opportunity to help each of their children discover the fullness of who they were made to be in God’s story. Jeff loves the outdoors, hiking and hunting and going on adventures with his family and friends. He also enjoys gardening with his wife. Storytelling is another one of his passions - communicating God’s truth through captivating parables.
