Before being ordained, he served in a lay capacity for nineteen years in the United Methodist Church in Walnut Grove, Minnesota. As a Pastor, he served in Winona, MN (3 years), Durham, NC (3 years), Stewartville, MN (10 years) and Buffalo, MN (6 years). Since July of 2014, he and his wife, Mary Jo, have been participating in ministry in the Lake City, MN United Methodist Church, including a short interim pastorate spanning November-December, 2014. Pastor Jef and Mary Jo have two adult children and five grandchildren. Pastor Jef’s gifts include preaching and teaching the word of God in a manner that demonstrates the Bible’s relevancy to daily life, equipping and empowering leaders within the church so that the mission of the church can be fulfilled, and providing pastoral care and counsel.
