Judah Tabernacle

Meet the Pastor

Pastor Jeff was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio where he still resides. He has been married to his wife Louann for more than 20 years. They have 3 daughters and two grandchildren.

Pastor Jeff began participating in active ministry in 1980, at the age of 15, when he started to travel and sing gospel music with his family. He traveled locally, statewide and in other surrounding states, until the age of 32. When the group ended their ministry after 17 years, they had completed 8 recording projects containing songs that reached the top 30 in the southern gospel music national charts. During the time he was traveling, he was called of God to preach and was ordained in the ministry where he attended.

The decision to cease traveling was to fulfill the call to become a pastor, which he began in August of 1998. Pastor Jeff has devoted much time over the last 9 years to the study of the Hebrew language and its interpretation in the Scriptures. The Word of God is central to His message but is often infused with the understanding of the Hebrew language. It is often said he brings the Word to a level that is easy to understand. Pastor Jeff is passionate about God’s Word, and with the anointing upon his life, he presents the messages with powerful declaration that is bold and straight forward.
