In 1992, Jeff and his family joined Youth With A Mission (YWAM), becoming one of the organization’s Discipleship Training School directors. For the past 18 years, he has taught young people, including his own three children, to embrace their faith, love God with all their hearts, and understand why they believe what they do. He recently completed his master of arts degree in Christian Thought at Bethel Seminary.
His work with YWAM has taken him to more than 30 countries, giving him a well-rounded perspective of other cultures and worldview systems. It is his passion to teach young people to think clearly about what they believe so they can choose to live out their faith with their whole heart.
