What You'll Hear:
Jeff was born again on at age 13 at an old timey spiritual revival
and was close to God
"A lot of times it's just easier to put God on the shelf somewhere
and try to do things on my own"
Jeff got away from God as a young man and made some mistakes
10-12 years ago Jeff was re-anointed with the Holy Spirit and
started growing close to Christ again
Small things and decisions in our lives can totally redirect
Jeff started working as an engineer for a natural gas company
working off-shore in Houston, TX
Jeff then worked for a rendering company in NC and found it was one
of the stinkiest jobs you could ever be in
Jeff went through a divorce and was traveling too much away from
his two sons and so he started his own dry-cleaning business
With a hired manager in his business, Jeff started doing general
contract work on the side. He now does contractor work
"The best thing is I'm doing what I love to do...I'm able to
develop a lot of relationships..I'm doing what God wants me to
do....it gives me a lot of flexibility"
Jeff started a camp for high school age boys in 2011 after being a
leader for his 2 boys in Boy Scouts
Jeff brainstormed with his pastors and came up with the X60 Camp to
help young man to experience God's creation and learn how to be a
man in today's world
60 miles = 23 miles hiking on the Appalachian Trail, 17 miles
biking on the Virginia Creeper, 20 miles of canoeing on the New
It's a week long camp.
They talk about false vs. real masculinity, relationships, finding
and living out God's purpose for our lives and serving others.
Many men have the wrong idea of what work should be. They
dread work and think of it as agitation. We should think of
it as a labor, task or duty that is one's means of livelihood.
We need to do something that we enjoy and or at least don't
If you want to be happy and enjoy the work you do, you either need
to do something else or look at the good things about your
God doesn't want us to be miserable in the work that we do.
He wants us to excel and do our best.
Have the right attitude and each day ask for God's guidance
The best way to share your Gospel at work is to be an
example. Have integrity and consistency.
Integrity is doing the right thing when no-one is looking. in
the workplace it's real easy to lose your integrity.
If you truly want to live out your faith at work and be a witness,
you basically have to have that constant integrity
Jeff's favorite scripture verse is Psalm 24:4-5 "
Show me Your ways, O Lord;
5 Lead me in Your truth and
You are the God
of my salvation;
On You I
wait all the day.
Proverbs 3:5-6 "Trust in the Lord with
all your heart,
lean not on your own understanding; In all your
ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your
paths" and Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things
through Christ who strengthens me"
Jeff encourages others to go on Mission Trips
Jeff encourages men to develop true friendships with other
men. He started developing these friendships a few years
typical man has one true friend...it takes a lot of effort to have
true friends but it's worth it
Check out the Timothy initiative and do it with other men.
It's an 8 week course.
