About Jeff
Jeff grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio. Little did he know that his class called “Time to Speak” at Walnut Hills High School and his summer job of teaching and coaching springboard diving would be combined with his walk with God and set apart for Jesus’ use in ministry. He left Cincinnati in 1983 to study Theology and Public Speaking at Ambassador University in Pasadena, California. In 1985, he got his first taste of camp ministry by serving at GCI’s then flagship camp in northern Minnesota. He was hooked. He would spend almost a decade at the feet of master teachers, motivators and leaders learning to equip teens and college students for camp and life ministry both at home and abroad.

After entering pastoral ministry in 1987, he served congregations in California and Texas until 1993 when he moved to the NYC area as an Associate Pastor. In addition to pastoral duties, he coordinated camps, speech and talent showcases, sports tournaments and trainings for teens throughout the Northeast. He would also become Senior Pastor for multiple congregations in New York and New Jersey over the next 17 years.

In 2004, Jeff became Director of GenMin’s New Heights Summer Camp in Plymouth, Connecticut. The next year he began serving on the GenMin Advisory Team. That same year, Jeff received his Master’s Degree in Counselor Education from Western Connecticut State University and continued doing motivational speaking, “at-risk youth” training and team building workshops at high schools, universities, community organizations and private corporations. The time in New York sharpened Jeff’s gift mix as he volunteered with national parenting and fatherhood organizations as well as served as a contracted consultant with the Westchester County Department of Corrections for 10 years working with incarcerated 16-24 year-olds, helping them prepare for re-integration into society.

In 2010, Jeff moved to the Columbus, Ohio area where he currently serves as Lead Pastor of two GCI congregations. After serving for several years as a Regional Camp Coach, n 2017 Jeff accepted an invitation to serve as GenMin’s National Coordinator. In addition to being a National Board Certified Counselor, Jeff is active in Kairos Prison Ministry, certified to lead SonLife Live 2/6 mentoring groups and is a Certified Entrepreneurship Teacher with the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship. He gets no greater delight than to be used by God to encourage and empower young believers to discover who they are uniquely made to be in Jesus, coach them to be faithful stewards of that life and then challenge them to take time to “speak the Gospel” into the lives of others.

About Lee
Lee was born a Yankee, but at age two he talked his parents into moving to Texas, where he and wife Sue now live. As a child, Lee was kinda odd: He liked going to school and church. And he loved Boy Scouts, reaching the rank of Eagle Scout.

Lee met Sue while attending Ambassador College—a Bible college. They fell in love and got hitched after college. They never had children of their own, but Lee has served for over 35 years as a youth pastor, youth camp staffer and director of mission trips for youth and older folks. The body is getting older, but his heart for youth remains.

These days, Lee works full-time in the real estate profession, volunteers as pastor of a church, directs a twice-a-year mission trip into Mexico and is nearing completion of a master’s degree in pastoral studies. All this is done with great help from Sue. In his spare time, he likes growing a garden, landscaping his yard, spending time with family and reading theology and 19th century novels. His dream is to work part-time or retire and spend lots of time listening to and encouraging youth, and traveling on international mission trips.
