Jeff is the Lead Pastor here at Southside Church. He and Candy have been married and have served together in ministry for over 20 years! They live in the South Jackson community with their three children. Jeff and Candy serve passionately together at Southside and enjoy every minute of it.

In 1994 while studying to be an engineer, God confirmed a desire for pastoral ministry in Jeff’s life. On the very same day, God gave this confirmation in Candy’s heart as well. Since that time they have never looked back. Pastor Jeff served as Student Pastor for many years as well as a Children’s and Associate Pastor. In 2006, they stepped out in faith to plant Southside Church.

Today, Jeff serves as Lead Pastor of Southside and devotes much of his time to the local community. Candy pours out her passion for ministry through relationships with the ladies of the church and leads The Well, a gathering for the ladies in and around the Southside community. Jeff and Candy seek to build real followers of Jesus through the church of Southside.
