Though not raised raised in a Christian home, Jeff came to faith in Christ as a young man and committed his life to the Lordship and service of his Savior. He was trained and employed in public health as a clinical microbiologist and later worked in the building industry. He met his wife Penny in college and they were married for 35 years. They were blessed with three children whom they raised in the fear and admonition of the Lord. Penny went home to her Savior in 2007 after a long, brave battle with cancer.
Jeff’s greatest joy is serving Christ’s church through the study and teaching of God’s Word. In view of the myriad fads and doctrinal aberrations plaguing the contemporary evangelical landscape, he is particularly concerned that local churches return to a high view of Scripture in order to be grounded in sound theology and practice.
Jeff enjoys family activities, cycling, woodworking and the four seasons and outdoor life of North Idaho. He is a graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary and a member of the Evangelical Theological Society.
