Jeff began his journey with Jesus at the age of 21 after he was radically saved from a life of alcoholism and vain pursuit of fame through country music. He and his wife Jodi surrendered their lives completely to Christ and became missionaries for Youth With A Mission (YWAM), serving in the nations of Turkey and Egypt. In 2006 Jeff became Youth Pastor at Mennonite Christian Assembly in Fredericksburg, OH, where he continues to equip students to reach their world with the G.O.S.P.E.L. Jeff and Jodi have five children: Taylor, Abigail, Piper, Elijah, & Eden. Jeff speaks often at camps and retreats, and also shares the message of Christ through music as the front man of the band Polen.
