Originally from Southern California, Jeff worked and studied under the leadership of Saddleback Church where he found a passion for ministering to youth, children and families.

Jeff is married to his best friend Tanya who he met at the University of Arizona where he studied child psychology and leadership.  They have two wonderful daughters, Kyra and Jayd, who love serving, sports and the outdoors.

Jeff truly has been called to serve the families and children of the church and is excited to use his God given spiritual gifts and children’s ministry training to expand the kingdom here in Griffin.
