Jeff and Lori were both born and raised in Southern California and have been married for 15 yrs. They have two amazing children, Shannon (19) and Cole (15). Lori was not raised in a Christian home, but God was always faithful to place a believing friend in her life throughout her school-age years. At the age of 15, she attended a Christian concert with a friend and gave her life to Christ. However once leaving home for college after high school, Lori fell away for a time. God was faithful however and pursued her (Luke 15:4-5). Jeff’s testimony is similar in that he came to the Lord when he was in high school but fell away. Neither Jeff nor Lori were walking with the Lord when they married but when their marriage was on the brink of divorce approximately 7 years ago, both began seeking the Lord separately. In His abundant mercy and grace, God repaired their marriage. Today it is the desire of both of their hearts to see others walking in victory in Jesus! Jeff and Lori began attending the Wednesday evening service at the barn so their daughter could get connected in a youth group. It wasn’t long before the barn became home! Lori now serves as the Women’s Ministry Assistant at the barn and Jeff serves in the Children’s ministry teaching the 4th, 5th and 6th graders.
“Nevertheless I am continually with You; You hold me by my right hand, You will guide me with Your counsel, and afterward receive me to glory. Whom have I in heaven but You? And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You. My flesh and my heart fail; but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” ~ Psalm 73:23-26
