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, and have adopted 6! 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 podcast and 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.
Meadow helped found Revolution, along with her husband, Pastor Jeff. Meadow is the director of Revokids, which includes the Nursery, Tot-spot, Kidopolis, and Club JD. Basically, she makes sure everyone from babies to 6th grade is growing Spiritually at 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 fifty kids into her home, has adopted 6 kids, and worked with numerous birth parents through the process of foster care and adoption with her ministry, “Blessed Hope Family.”
Introducing Carrie Mitchell, our Youth Director and resident ‘Captain Inspiration’! With the kind of social superpowers that could win over a room full of introverted teenagers, Carrie can make anyone feel like they’ve just been awarded ‘World’s Coolest Human’. Blessed with a brainstorming brain that fires off creative ideas like fireworks, Carrie is our go-to gal for out-of-the-box thinking. Her love for Jesus and His church is contagious, spreading faster than a viral cat video. If you’ve ever wondered why the strategies at Revolution run so smoothly, you have Carrie and her secret pastime of 3D chess to thank for that. Did we mention she’s a master at juggling? Not circus-style, but with a bustling household of five kids and a husband, it’s safe to say she’s aced the art of multitasking. From her days serving up smiles (and coffee) at Hebrews Coffee Bar to holding the reins as our Youth Director, she’s demonstrated an unparalleled knack for making people feel valued, loved, and accountable all at once. So here’s to Carrie, our positivity-spreading, youth-engaging, strategically-minded dynamo, proving every day that ‘Youth Director’ is just another term for ‘Educational Superhero’!
Melissa’s sanity could be questioned because she willingly accepted a job where she’d work with Jeff. That being said, however, her previous work as a graphic designer (for The Angel Company), as an insurance office manager (for Allstate) along with her degree in Business Management, brought a great combination together for a Church Administrator. 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.
