In June 2000, Jeff led his first Online Bible Study, taking 75 people around the planet through the book of James using a text-based system called Ultimate BB. He was doing digital ministry way before it was cool. Founding THECHURCH.DIGITAL in 2018, Jeff’s passions have evolved into helping churches (and individuals too!) find their calling through digital discipleship, releasing people on digital mission, and planting multiplying digital churches. This pursuit is realized through DigitalChurch.Network, an organic, decentralized network for digital expressions of church. The DCN vision is achieved by working with the team NewThing Network. Jeff also champions Metaverse Church development as the Director of Metaverse Church NEXT for Leadership Network, and works closely Exponential and other globally facing, multiplication friendly, gospel-centric organizations. 

Jeff married his high-school sweetheart, Amy, and has two kids, and a dog. They live in Miami, Florida.
