Growing up in suburban Philadelphia, Jeff was an out of control teenager who struggled through High School. At age 21, he married his wife Jodie, and they welcomed their daughter Aviana. A few years later, they hit rock bottom. Lost and confused, they walked into a local church and found what they had been missing, A relationship with Jesus Christ.
That moment changed everything. With a renewed focus in life, Jeff & Jodie began to feel the call to ministry.
While working full time outside the church, Pastor Jeff received his Ministerial Studies Diploma from Global University (Springfield Mo), and served as a Youth Pastor working with urban teenagers in the Philadelphia area for the next 10 years.
In December of 2018, God called Jeff and his family to move to Mifflintown to serve at Lighthouse Community Church.
Pastor Jeff & Jodie have been married for 25 years, and are rabid Philadelphia Eagles fans! They love motorsports, camping, Chic-Fil-a, and sharing time with their family, and spunky kitten “Talia.”
A 25 year veteran of the Volunteer Fire Service, Jeff is recognized by the Federation of Fire Chaplains, and is Licensed & Ordained by the Assemblies of God
