Pastor Jeff and his wife, Caitlin, have three lovely children. They enjoy mountain biking and camping with their family. Both Jeff and Caitlin were raised in Negaunee, Michigan.
Jeff moved to Wisconsin for high school, but came back and graduated from Northern Michigan University. After NMU Jeff spent 3 years doing campus ministry with His House before attending seminary for his masters. He spent 10 years pastoring in Wisconsin before coming back home to the UP, which he calls ‘the greatest place on earth’.
Jeff and Caitlin love seeing men and women’s lives transformed by the gospel of Jesus. They love community, people and most of all they love Jesus.
