Jef Eifert - Intern Pastor/Elder
Jef is a military brat who landed in Oscoda, Michigan when his Air Force father was stationed there in 1981. He spent 18 years as a truck driver when God called him into ministry in 2012. Pursuing the call led him and his family to Johnson University in Knoxville TN. An opportunity to intern at REACH in the summer of 2016 reignited his first desire – to plant a church! Currently, Jef is bi-vocational, he runs his own small business, Edge Medic (a local knife sharpening service) and he serves as Associate Pastor and Elder while pursuing ordination with the Christian & Missionary Alliance. He hopes to launch a new church in Bay City MI sometime in the fall of 2018. Jef has been married Jackie since 2002 and they have three children. Jef enjoys family time, motorcycling, woodworking, and anything to do with the water.
