Having come to Christ as a university student, Jeff’s passion is to strengthen and plant local churches in university communities. To that end, Jeff is the teaching pastor for Veritas Church in Iowa City (near the U of Iowa). In order to develop future leaders for church-planting in university communities, Jeff designed and directs the Veritas School of Theology (in partnership with MBTS). He also continues his work with the Hope Center in rural Zambia, teaching rural church-planters and helping care for orphans.
Jeff received his MDiv from The Master’s Seminary, and his DMin and PhD from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. Jeff is the author of “Gospel 101: Learning, Living & Sharing the Gospel” and “Titus: Life-Changing Truth in a World of Lies.”
He and his wife, Teresa, have four grown children and a growing herd of grandkids.
