Jeff serves on the EMCC National Team as Reginal Minister in Ontario East and North regions. After 20 years as an Industrial Millwright and Machinist, he was the lead pastor of Grace Church in Port Hope for 16 plus years. His primary calling is to “proclaim him, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ.” (Col. 1:28) This vocational passion informs his desire to model, shape and disciple leaders to serve at their full kingdom potential. An unreserved commitment to the power of the gospel to transform lives is at the heart of his theology and practice.
Jeff has been married to his wife Shelley for 33 years and has two grown children; their son Ethan, who is married to Mira and their daughter Sadie. At this time, they have one grand puppy but are hopeful. Jeff has always been drawn to the outdoors as a place of refreshing and reflection. He loves anything that bangs or twangs and is an avid clay target shooter.
