About Jeff

Jeff is a youth minister in Dallas, TX, and a youth ministry veteran of 12 years. He is passionate about guiding and shaping the next generation, and he believes the local church is strongest tool for the job. Networking and encouraging other ministers is also high on his list of passions. He hopes this blog will serve as a resource of insight to ministry leaders, youth volunteers and parents. If you aren’t currently investing in young people somewhere, Jeff hopes that you will change your mind.

He also loves football, basketball, and secretly wishes he could be in the Dude Perfect squad. He lives with his beautiful wife, Faith, who also volunteers with high school girls in their youth ministry. You can contact Jeff at jeffdharding@gmail.com.
