Pastor Jeff began as our pastor in August 2010 and is known for his sense of humor, ventriloquism, and stories that he shares with children of all ages. If you look closely at his picture you’ll see that he gives Northside “three thumbs up” and says you will too if you give it a try.
While Pastor Jeff enjoys the bright side of life, his preparation for ministry is quite serious. With over 30 years experience as a pastor, a Ph.D. in Religion from Baylor University, a Masters of Divinity and a Masters of Religious Education from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, and an undergraduate degree from Georgetown University, Pastor Jeff is ready and able to serve you and your family as pastor, encourager, and friend.
He has published numerous articles and books of issues relating to church and families. His books include Fortified Kids: 4 Keys to Raising Children of Distinction; American Gothic Church: Changing the Way People See the Church; Does Your Child’s World Scare You? His most recent books are two fun and inspiring children’s books: “Where Do Belly Buttons Come From?” and “The Calling Card of the King.”
Pastor Jeff and his dear wife Debbie have been married since 1980 and have two accomplished adult children, Amy and Brennan.
