Faces of Pee Dee

Jeff and his wife, Gwen, started Antioch Fellowship Church in 2000 with no members and a rented portable office facility.

Their mission was to start a church and reach as many at-risk young people as possible. Jeff believes he needs to have the children when they are young to maximize his influence on their lives.

Today Jeff has over 300 members of his church and he keeps around 50 children from 2 1/2 to 12 years old. When you enter “Pastor Jeff’s” 11,000 sq. ft. facility located on a 4 acre campus, there is a happy chatter of young children. One is impressed by the building’s cleanliness and pleasant staff.

Jeff helps teens finish school and adults apply for jobs and start new businesses. He believes in the free enterprise system and works to instill these values in his congregation. The people of the Pee Dee are better off because Jeff believes in them.
