Jef LeamanCo-Founder/ Executive Director
Jef brings to Ministry 911 over 25 years of music and office/personnel management experience training teams related to church worship, traveling ministries, job readiness, relational coaching, administration, personal finance, and sales. Jef believes that every personal, spiritual, relational, and physical life concern can only be adequately addressed when Scripture is involved; when mentoring or facilitating small groups, he submits that finding answers without God’s Word only results in fleeting solutions.
Jef graduated from Lancaster Bible College in 1995 with a BS in Bible/General Ministries and a Music emphasis. A gifted teacher, Jef structures his sermons and lesson plans to actively engage various learning styles. His Biblical studies always include personal identification with characters in order to better understand and apply personal Scriptural truths.
Jef’s primary focus in worship is to connect with and lead people in a time of praise and thanksgiving to God. A passion for both traditional hymns and contemporary choruses, Jef strives to offer blended services where the words of the music are in line with Scriptural truths.
Whether tossing a football, or leading a growth group, Jef values opportunities to share God’s grace with boys and men, helping them realize the freedom Christ offers.
