Raised in Eastern North Carolina, Jeff first fell in love with church music at his small Catholic Community where he was invited to play piano for an Easter Sunrise service.  He never stopped.   Leaving North Carolina for the University of Notre Dame, Jeff played piano and learned guitar, but found his voice as a tenor in the Notre Dame Folk Choir.   More importantly, he learned foundational principles of the importance of congregational singing at worship.  He eventually found his way to Milwaukee, having met his wife Laura and raised his children Isaac and Selah, all strong singers and musicians themselves.  Jeff is thrilled to be working, praying and playing with the Redeemer community and with Pastor Lisa.   

 

Contact Jeff to discuss how you can get involved in liturgical music as a musician, as a singer in the choir, or just have a song to suggest that we pray with at services.
