Executive Director
704-896-8957, ext. 102

Jeff's passion for Habitat for Humanity was sparked in 1985, when he first volunteered on a build through his church. The cause immediately spoke to him, as someone who had experienced housing stability as a child. Jeff’s family was fortunate to have people to help see them through, and he believes that all families deserve that kind of support. An ordained minister, Jeff served as a pastor for more than 25 years before joining Habitat in a full-time staff capacity. He served on the board of Habitat for Humanity of Iredell County for three years before taking on the role of Executive Director for the affiliate in 2013. There, he helped guide the struggling affiliate through a merger with the neighboring Our Towns Habitat for Humanity in October 2014. He continues to serve as Executive Director for the merged affiliate, Our Towns Habitat for Humanity of North Mecklenburg-Iredell. Jeff has a Doctor of Ministry degree from Emory University in Atlanta and a Master of Divinity degree from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest. He earned his undergraduate degree from Mercer University in Macon, Ga.
