Jeff Jaeger Bio

Meet Jeff

Jeff was born in Fond du Lac, WI and attended the University of Wisconsin - Oshkosh, double majoring in Accounting and Finance. He holds a Masters in Christian Studies from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. Jeff lives with his wife Sherrey, their three sons Cam, Cade and Cale, and daughter Caris.

What is one thing about you that people would find surprising?

Those who know me well know I often act like a kid at heart. I think sometimes people think of me only as serious or intense "Pastor Jeff." But my family and those close to me would tell you that I can be goofy, weird, and maybe even a little bit immature at times (in an appropriate way of course!) I love to have fun and be able to just be "Jeff"!

What is the greatest bit of advice a parent or mentor has given you?

My dad taught and modeled that we need to work hard, stay determined, and persevere no matter what the situation looks like.

What’s the greatest bit of advice a parent or mentor has given you?

What is one of the things on your bucket list? 

One thing on my bucket list is to go on an international mission trip! 

What motivates you?  

Personal testimonies! I am always drastically motivated by the truth that He is on the move, and in the end, He claims victory. It is a powerful reminder that He is mighty to save. He is powerful. He has a plan greater than I can imagine, and He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Personal testimonies always lead me to reflect on my own and motivate me to continue to have perseverance in the work He has called me to.

My biggest pet peeve is.... 

Jeans with fake front pockets
