Pastor Jeff and Lisa Humphrey met as students at Texas State University and have been partners in life and ministry for over 35 years. Jeff grew up in Seguin, Texas and Lisa grew up in El Campo, Texas. Both came to know Christ as children through the ministries of their Baptist churches, and both sensed God’s call to ministry as teenagers. Lisa has worked in public schools for almost 20 years, and the last five have been as an elementary school teacher.
Lisa and Jeff have two adult children. Drew, their son, serves as a college Pastor in Waco, Texas and is married to Holly, a labor/delivery nurse. They are currently fostering an infant child from Waco. Their daughter Abby is a teacher in Plano, Texas and is married to Kyle who is an accountant for an investment firm in Las Colinas, Texas.
Pastor Jeff and Lisa have served various communities and churches (mostly in Texas) through several roles God has used Jeff to serve Him. Jeff has served as Worship Pastor, Youth Pastor, Education Pastor and Executive Pastor in the Austin area, Houston area, Dallas/Ft. Worth area and most recently in Kansas City, Missouri. In these churches, some smaller and others larger, Jeff has always allowed the Lord to use his gifts, talents and abilities to connect heart to heart with the body of Christ, and to partner with them to know God and make Him known in their city, state, nation and in our world. Lisa knows her call to teach kids is from the Lord and has been blessed to impact hundreds of students academically. In teaching, Lisa lives to be an example of Christ to her kids, parents, and to teachers and administrators.
Pastor Jeff’s hobbies include long runs or getting in a round of golf. Lisa enjoys reading and going for walks with their dog Casey. Together they love to work in the yard, go to the beach, and spend time with family and friends.
