Second is Jeff’s commitment to the historic Reformed faith and one manfiestation of that faith, namely, the Christian Reformed Church. Third is Jeff’s commitment to serving the church by communicating biblical truths in such a passionate and user-friendly way that the person in the pew may grow in his or her understanding of the Bible. Jeff’s teaching has taken him all over the world. He has taught courses in Hungary, Greece, South Korea, Kenya, Taiwan, The Philippines, and South Africa.
