Jeff grew up near Detroit, Michigan and came to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ when he was 11, through the faithful ministry of his youth leader and the groundwork laid by his mother. During his college years at Eastern Michigan University, and while serving in his home church and in a campus Bible study, God began to place the desire for full-time ministry on Jeff’s heart, which eventually led to seminary training at The Master’s Seminary some ten years later.

Jennifer grew up in Saginaw, Michigan. By God’s sovereign design, her neighbors invited her to their local church, and for the first time she began hearing the gospel. Eventually, after continuing to attend the church services, God opened Jennifer’s heart to her need for Christ and she was saved at age 12. During her college years, Jennifer became involved in a campus fellowship group, and through that ministry was given multiple opportunities to do short-term missions work in the Middle East. Through these ministry trips God put a special burden on her heart for missions. It has been the delight of Jennifer’s heart to see God, over the course of several years, steer her husband, herself, and her children in the direction of career missions.
