Jeff and Sylvie married in November 2007 and currently reside in Omaha, Nebraska. Jeff has been in full-time ministry for 2 decades. He was hired by Elmer Murdoch after college to be the 8th pastor on staff at Trinity Church Interdenominational – a large Spirit-filled church on the west side of town.
Jeff was Assistant Youth Pastor to Ty Schenzel at Trinity from 1990-1996. During that time, Ty and Jeff pastored an army of outstanding young people – many who became full-time pastors, missionaries and youth pastors themselves. Jeff co-hosted the radio talk show STRAIGHT TALK with Ty & Terri Schenzel that ran every Sunday night from 1993-1996.
Jeff was the Ministry Director at Omaha YFC from 1996-1999; where both the youth meetings and donations tripled by God’s grace. Jeff met Sylvie while he was the pastor of small groups, productions and communications at Rochester A/G from 2006-2015. Jeff & Sylvie were interim pastors at Brooklyn Park AG in Brooklyn Park, MN from 2016 to 2018.
In 2019, they moved back to Omaha to work with Step Up To Life and Executive Director Lincoln Murdoch.
Jeff published his first book THE NEW PHARISEE in 2010. His 2nd book as co-author of PEBBLES IN THE POND VOL 2 was an AMAZON BESTSELLER in 3 categories.
He also wrote and directed his first feature film HEART OF THE CITY which premiered at the Omaha Film festival in 2009. Jeff has also written and directed over 20 stage plays, and is currently working on several books – including the true life story of his journey with Ty Schenzel who stepped out in faith to start what eventually became The Hope Center in North Omaha, Nebraska.
