Outreach Pastor Candidating September 25-26

Jeff was raised in a wonderful Christian home just outside of Grand Rapids, Michigan. He graduated from Hope College with a degree in Business Administration and spent some time working in the business world. He has worked in commercial banking, real estate acquisition, and also owned a company that ran after school golf programs and summer camps for children. He and his wife Mollie have been married for three years and are expecting their first child in January.

In 2004 Jeff felt God calling him into full-time ministry and he enrolled at Moody Theological Seminary where he earned a Masters of Divinity. He has been serving with Oak Pointe Church in Michigan since 2007 and he is currently the Director of Missions and Outreach. He has a huge passion for the local church and loves seeing the body of Christ discipled and trained to reach out both locally and globally. He says, “When people give themselves away in love and service to others for the glory of God, the body of Christ grows and the church fulfills its role of making disciples.” “Jesus said, ‘I will build my church.’ The fact that we are able to be a part of that is humbling, yet incredibly exciting.”
Golf is by far Jeff’s biggest hobby, but he also enjoys just about any outdoor activity. He also loves traveling, reading, playing his oft-neglected guitar, and working on projects around the house. He is an avid Michigan State Spartan fan, so he dislikes the Wolverines just as much as everyone in Ohio. Jeff and Mollie love serving the Lord and desire to be in the center of His will for their lives.
