Jeff has been involved with numerous national educational organizations and conferences. He frequently presents on the topics of leadership, effective communication and connectivity, and innovation; all areas in which he is particularly passionate.
In addition to his administrative and teaching experience, Jeff feels right at home at LCA, reconnecting with a faith-based community. He faithfully served in ministry for fifteen years at churches in both Dallas and Austin before moving to McKinney. It was during his time in service at Christ Fellowship in McKinney as a high school pastor that he felt the call to education. Jeff is eager to converge his passion for equipping students to be the best version of who they are in Christ both spiritually and academically.
Having spent my career in ministry and education I am excited to lead our students to embrace their purpose and passion. It's my goal for students to explore their next right step in response to God's call over their lives to serve others.
Jeff and his wife Heidi have two children, Ellison, who will be a 6th grader and Greer, who will be in second grade.
