In 2010, he graduated from Liberty University with a Master of Arts degree in Worship Arts. Since then, Jeff has performed throughout the world as a featured performer and master teacher at local, state, and national training conferences and seminars in drama, worship arts, music ministry, teacher training, children’s ministry, and creative arts. In 1991, he was the Grand Prize Winner for Drama at the Christian Artist’s Seminar at Estes Park, Colorado, and was a finalist in the vocal categories from 1989 - 1991.
