After becoming a Christian in 2002, Jeff’s call and passion is to herald the Gospel at every opportunity and to equip average, everyday Christ-followers to more faithfully do the work of an evangelist.  He faithfully serves from their church, Harvest Bible Chapel – London and as Vice President of The Cross Current ministry.

Apart from serving families in the local communities of Chatham-Kent at the funeral home and sharing the Gospel of Jesus through ministry, spending time with his wife and family is where the rest of his time is enjoyed.
