Jeff loves being a pastor at SPC, encouraging every part of the church (adults, youth, and kids) to grow in their understanding and faith in Jesus Christ. As the Head of Staff, Jeff gets to lead and work with a talented, faithful staff, as they lead SPC with imagination, passion and love. As the moderator of Session, Jeff has the privilege with the SPC Elders, to lead our quest to be a Christ Centered, Mission Minded Family together.
Jeff completed his Master of Divinity at Princeton Theological Seminary in 1999 and received his Doctor of Ministry in Leadership and Spiritual Formation from George Fox University in 2007. He and his wife, Kristi, met at the University of Washington where they were both involved in the college group at University Presbyterian Church. They have four beautiful daughters, Lucy, Clara, Dayle and Violet, and one large Great Dane, Venti. In his spare time, Jeff loves spending time with his family, reading, cooking, listening to jazz, learning about Scotch whisky, and travelling.
