Going Deeper

Contending for the faith

Restoring pathways of reason, truth and faith

Welcome to a site designed to create thought and provoke an evaluation of that which we have come to accept as true.  With God’s Word as the ultimate vehicle of truth, He has also given us logic and critical thinking to process how we do life, ministry and community.  With this in mind, we are long overdue for the voices of those who would challenge our behavior and accepted norms to take their place and challenge or encourage us towards deeper truths.  Let’s dig deeper, go deeper and restore the faith of our fathers and early church Fathers.

About Jeff

Jeff comes to the table with decades of experience serving in the local church.  As a Worship Pastor & Executive Pastor, he has guided churches through seasons of growth as well as seasons of intense conflict.  Today Jeff is committed to training and equipping the next generation to thrive in a postmodern culture. With a solid academic background Jeff is fostering a new conversation in Christian Schools, Universities and Churches.  As a theologian and apologist, Jeff believes it’s time to reckon with the past, challenge the present, and pave a new pathway forward.  As Jesus-followers, we have too often abandoned the biblical for the popular, built foundations on personalities and re-imaged God to fit our needs.  Jeff is called to sound the alarm and to gently call us back to the foundations of our faith.
