Jeff was born and raised in East Tennessee and holds a bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies. He has been in ministry since 2005, and has had the opportunity to build two student ministries from the ground up. Jeff currently serves as a Student Pastor at Faith Promise Church in Knoxville, TN, and leads a campus of over 500 students. Jeff also runs and writes at ymLead.com, an online leadership network for youth workers, and is the author of the book #Goals: Setting Goals to Move You Forward.
Jeff’s goal in ministry is to lead students to know & follow Jesus in a way that affects every part of their life, and to raise up next generation leaders to have an even greater impact. More than anything, Jeff enjoys sharing life and adventures with his wife Candis and their two boys, Malachi and Imri.
