Pastor Jeff began his call to serve as pastor of FBC Eureka on August 16, 2015 after moving from San Diego, CA and leaving a 28½ year career with Dixieline Lumber Company. Jeff answered the call of God by acquiring his Masters of Divinity from Bethel Seminary San Diego while working.
Jeff’s vision is to provide servant leadership to the community of believers of the church and provide pastoral care/direction to the church as it relates to the ministry of furthering the Gospel of Christ. His desire is to demonstrate the heart and compassion of Christ to the lost and hurting, to minister to people of all ages and to be an active participant in the community to which the church resides. Ministry takes place in the church and in the community.
