Geoff has worked as a Pastor for over 20 years.

Geoff studied Theology and Pastoral Leadership at Texas Christian University, completing both his undergraduate and Masters of Divinity as a ‘Horned Frog’. During grad school Geoff coached high school football in Texas after leading his own high school football team to one of the most successful in school history as a team captain. He remains an avid TCU college football fan and now referees football in the Chicago-land area.
Geoff loves teaching at worship events and encouraging people to pursue a life of faith. His teaching style is accessible and clear while conveying Geoff’s passion to share faith in Jesus. During the Message, Geoff shares humorous stories and illustrations while clearly encouraging people to make the next step in their faith to discover the life-enriching power of faith in Jesus. Always striving for clear and concise communication, Geoff’s messages have a practical point and purpose and are only about 30 minutes in duration.
