Jeff was raised in Northern California and is the youngest of four children. Before the age of three he was miraculously healed of three separate physical ailments. Shortly thereafter, at the age of five, he met Christ while praying with his mother in the backseat of the family station wagon.
It wasn't until his college years that Jeff sensed God's call to ministry. After graduating from San Jose State University with a BS degree in business, he served for five and a half years at Chico State University and Butte College as a campus pastor. During that time, he saw many students devote their lives to Christ and be launched into ministry.
Jeff has preached all around the world and had led several outreach teams to places like Thailand, Morocco, India, Europe, South America, China, Hong Kong and most recently Africa, Mexico, Argentina and the Middle East.
He currently travels full-time as a kingdom communicator speaking to adults and youth. He has written two books: Unshakable (2009) and Bulletproof (2013). He founded SoleQuest International in 2002 and went on to earn a masters degree through Wagner Leadership Institute. He and his wife Meljoné live in the San Francisco Bay Area with their three children.
