Jeff’s passion is to see the global body of Christ engaged together in His mission, for His glory. At the local level, that means helping the various ministries of KBC operate in unison toward the goal of obeying the Great Commission.
Jeff has a B.A. in Philosophy from NIU, has received four years of training in KBC’s own Pastoral Training Academy, and is currently enrolled at Moody Theological Seminary pursuing a Master’s of Arts in Biblical Studies.
In his down time, Jeff enjoys geeking out on the latest techo-fads, or getting out on a country road for a long bike ride.

Youth and Missions Intern
Michael is currently in the midst of a two-year youth ministry and outreach internship at Kishwaukee Bible Church, which he began in October 2011.
Michael first moved to the DeKalb/Sycamore area in 1997 when he started attending Northern Illinois University. After graduating from NIU in 2002, Michael stayed in the area and spent 2002- 2011 working as a fundraiser for both Northern Illinois University and Wheaton College. During those years, God really grew Michael’s heart for youth ministry at KBC, and in 2008 he began leading the youth ministry as a volunteer. He is excited to be able to devote more time to youth ministry through his current internship.
Michael also works part-time for Josiah Venture, a missions organization committed to raising up young leaders in Eastern Europe to fulfill Christ’s commission through the local church. He assists missionaries in the support raising process, and being half Eastern European himself, he is excited to be a part of God’s movement amongst the youth in that region.
Michael has been married for two years to his wife Kristine, whom he met at Kishwaukee Bible Church.
