The people at Revolution Church have a good combination of fun, integrity, mercy, hilarious
awkwardness, and passion for God. It works well.
He’s the Founding Pastor of Revolution Church, but don’t call him “Pastor Jeff” – he prefers if you just call him “Jeff.” Or “hey you” works fine too.
Jeff’s teaching style is a combination between Chuck Norris’ power and Denzel Washington’s stage presence. But, enough of what Jeff thinks about himself. The truth is, Jeff has a passion for reaching those who have never been in Church, or haven’t been for a long time. “I just want to help people know who Jesus is, and what he’s done for them!” he says.
Another passion Jeff has is for adoption and foster care. He, and his wife, Meadow, have been foster parents for over fifty children, have guardianship for three and have adopted two. He is the former President of KFAPA (the Kansas Foster and Adoptive Parent Association).
Using his masters degree in Christian Apologetics from Biola University, Jeff hosts a popular weekly radio show, Truth Revolution. It is where “faith and reason meet” as each week they tackle science, mathematics, archeology, and logic, integrating them into faith, Biblical studies, and religion. Truth Revolution can be heard on thirteen radio channels and podcasts, as well as broadcasts on TV and YouTube.
He is a member of our Worship Team, a member of the Church Board, Co-leader of the Men’s Ministry, and Co-host of the Truth Revolution Radio Show with Pastor Jeff.
After serving a term in prison, Dave was sure that no church would ever accept him. Fortunately Jeff basically tricked him into playing bass for the Worship Team and he’s been here ever since. Here at Revolution Church, he didn’t simply find a community that accepted him; but one that loved him, appreciated him, and wanted him around! Here’s his story.
Putting Dave’s background in radio to use, he and Jeff launched the Truth Revolution radio program in 2011. The show is currently airing on 13 stations across the Midwest and making a difference in peoples’ lives.
With a vocation in Web Design, Dave also manages the Truth Revolution website along with various other Church projects. He is an avid motorcyclist, and is heavily involved in the Bikers for Christ ministry.
Melissa cares deeply about people who are struggling in any way, but isn’t content to just feel bad. She wants to help change lives and connect people to God. Ultimately, that’s why she works at Revolution. She even prayed for a couple years, “Lord, I want to work for you” when, finally, she was approached about working at the Church.
Whether it’s managing the Growth Group schedule, preparing for the Welcome Class, designing posters, or giving counsel to the people who stop in, Melissa fits right at home in Revolution Church.
With a B.A. in Communications from Tabor College, and job experience in administration, teaching, event planning, and management Meadow carries a unique combination of skill necessary to pull of this huge ministry every single week.
Meadow, with her husband, also is passionate about foster care. She has taken in over forty kids into her home, and worked with numerous birth parents through the process of foster care and adoption with her ministry, “Blessed Hope Family.”
Shaila has extensive experience in youth camp, and has served in missions for a year to the Navajo Nation.
God has given her a heart for those who have been bound in the Sex Trafficking Industry and a desire to reach those who have been affected by it.
Shaila also helps run The Journey House, a home for awesome women who want to work together to reach their full potential. She helps to facilitate a structured environment where women live together in healthy, living community to support and guide one another to a healthier way of life.
Sam is passionate about helping people connect with the Church Community through creative and artistic methods. He leads teams of people to create, edit, and produce high quality videos every single week at Revolution Church. Whatever you see on the screen, was most likely done by Sam or a member of his team.
