Jeff serves as a teaching pastor at Cross Church NWA but in his free time loves writing creative stories that communicate truth. His first love is Jesus Christ, but after that is his wife, Julie, who he met in college in the late 80s while working on his bachelor degree in philosophy at Oklahoma Baptist University. After college the couple went on to have four children (three bio and one adopted from Colombia) while Jeff earned a divinity degree from Southwestern Seminary and doctorate in education and leadership from Southern Seminary. He's lived most his life in the Northwest region of Arkansas from where he has traveled the world on numerous mission trips.
As a child, Jeff loved all things science fiction and found himself always dreaming of what could be. An avid reader of both fiction and non-fiction, Jeff made the jump several years ago to write his first novel, Finding Eden. The book quickly gained a fan base and Jeff found himself with readers wanting more. He is grateful that people would actually give of their precious time to read his stories.
