Riverside Staff & Elders
Jeff Speel has served in youth ministry for 16 years now and loves nothing more than seeing students know Jesus, follow Him, and share their passion for the Lord with others. He is very passionate about short-term mission trips and believe that the dynamic of a whole church can be transformed through these experiences.
Jeff and his wife, Christina, have two fun-loving kiddos, Elle and Hutz, and you can find them at home singing/dancing to High School Musical songs, watching Dude Perfect, or exploring on family bike excursions. He also loves playing board games with Christina, even though she usually wins.
Currently, his favorite verse is 1 Peter 1:8 - 9 "Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls.”
He is so excited to build relationships with students and parents at Riverside, and build God’s Kingdom together.
