Jeff Jennings

Pastor of College & Growth Groups - GraceSLO

Jeff was raised in a Christian home and came to faith at a young age. He had the privilege of attending a Christian school through high school, which led him to a love of literature. After receiving a B.A. in English Literature, and a secondary education teaching credential from Cal State Fullerton, Jeff went on to complete a Master of Divinity degree at Talbot Seminary.

It was during Jeff’s undergraduate years that he sensed a call on his life to ministry that was confirmed by others within his church. He served for 10 years at Christ Community Church of Laguna Hills before accepting the call as Pastor of College and Growth Groups at GraceSLO in 2012.

He met his wife Robin on New Years Eve in 2003, right after she graduated from Biola University with a degree in Elementary Education. They were married in 2005 and blessed with their daughter, Evangeline, in 2009, their daughter Margaux in 2013, and their son Jack in 2014 . In his free time, Jeff enjoys playing guitar, running, reading, traveling, and spending time with his family. He has a passion to see people’s lives and hearts have radical encounters with the Gospel of grace!
