While being raised in Ohio, Chaplain Jeff came to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ at the age of five. Growing up, he always felt a calling to serve God. He received a bachelor’s degree at The Ohio State University and furthered his education at Liberty University to earn a master’s degree with a focus on chaplaincy. Jeff has a passion for serving the Lord through expository preaching and teaching, so he joined the Army Reserves to serve our God and Country as a military chaplain. He married Maggie in November of 2013 and together they share six children. Jeff has been faithfully serving as pulpit supply here at First Baptist Church of Strongsville since June of 2020.
