Though originally from Greenwood, Mississippi, Jeff spent the last 20+ years living in Georgia. After graduating from the University of Georgia in 2002, he began his full-time ministry at Perimeter Church in Johns Creek, Georgia. While on staff at Perimeter, Jeff also attended Metro Atlanta Seminary, where he graduated in 2009 with a Master of Divinity.
In 2009, Jeff and his family left Perimeter Church to help start ChristChurch Suwanee in Suwanee, Georgia. There, Jeff served as Worship Leader and Associate Pastor for more than six wonderful years.
After seeing ChristChurch grow to become a self-sustaining church that was planting other churches, Jeff's heart returned to considering church planting, which eventually lead to moving the family to Jonesboro to begin Christ Redeemer in October of 2016.
Jeff has been married to his wife, Lori since 2004, and together, they have three boys, Jackson, William, and Samuel.
