What Clients Are Saying

“Jeff spotted me out early in my church planting career. I had been at the whole pastoring thing but we were far from being “off the ground.” As usual, Jeff style, he took the time to invest in me with coffee get-togethers, dinner with the wife, and attending our services. One thing he spoke into me from the beginning was to “be me.” He explained that being someone that I thought I should be was going to be a distraction and insincere. Of course, he did not say it that direct because while Jeff is teaching and encouraging, he wanted me to get a hold of the concept without him “telling me how to do it.” He encouraged me to be me. If I would do that, I would, first of all, have integrity before God, self and family. It wouldn’t be a burden to carry because ministry alone has enough burdens. No need to have to walk around trying to be the pastor down the street. Secondly, I would attract the right people for our church if I could be me. We needed to stay in our identity as a church, and I needed to lead that as a pastor first and foremost. I needed to trust God to lead the people assigned to me that were intended for the ministry God was calling us all to. And being “that person” the people would recognize was the first big step in a ministry culture that needed to be set. Jeff never asked me how big my church has gotten or how successful I would judge myself or ministry, but he has on several occasions made sure I was being the me that he knew I was created to be.”
