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. Almost 10 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 new hunger for reaching others, their marriage was impacted by a move of the Holy Spirit, and they began to feel the call to ministry. Starting off as volunteers in the Youth Group, they served as Staff Pastors for thirteen years, while Jeff completed his Ministerial Studies.
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 over 20 years, and are avid Philadelphia Eagles fans. They love sharing time with their daughter, their little doggie “Rocky Balboa,” and spunky kitten “Talia!”
A 25 year veteran of the Fire Service, Pastor Jeff is recognized by the Federation of Fire Chaplains, and is Licensed & Ordained by the Assemblies of God
