Jeff's desire as Worship Pastor is to connect our hearts and minds to God through singing and songs. He leads the team of musicians and technicians who in turn lead us in worship.
Prior to joining First's pastoral staff in 2015, Jeff led worship in various church settings, including an Uptown church plant-coffee shop-performance venue. He spent three years in Master's Commission in Rockford, IL and is currently completing Christian Ministries studies at Bethel University. Jeff loves the city, and lives in Minneapolis with his wife Anne, sons Theo and Archie, a dog, and two cats. When not at church, he is playing or listening to live music, teaching drums, or wrasslin' with his boys. Jeff loves to garden, to cook/eat, go fishing, and to be outside for any reason—especially around a lake—with his family.
Where might you see Jeff hanging out in Minneapolis? "I am a die-hard Twins fan, so I like to go to Target Field for a ball game every chance I get."
