Co-Pastor

Tiffany grew up in Arizona and moved to Kansas to attend the University of Kansas and major in athletic training. After college, she served with AmeriCorps in eastern Kentucky then came back to Kansas City where she pursued an MPA in Non-Profit Administration from the University of Missouri Kansas City. She worked as an executive assistant to a pastor at a church in KCMO and as an advocate for victims of domestic abuse.Jeff grew up in the Oklahoma Panhandle. He attended college at Oklahoma Panhandle State where he majored in Social Science and History Education. After school, he served with the Peace Corps in southwestern China.  Upon returning to the States, Jeff enrolled in the Masters of Divinity program at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (MBTS) and also worked as a pastoral intern at Lenexa Baptist. Both Tiffany and Jeff decided to further their education and spiritual growth at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. It was there that they met and soon after were married. When they completed their degrees in 2017, they moved back to Kansas City so Jeff could pursue a Ph.D. in Biblical Studies (MBTS). Tiffany began working in the women’s center at Shelter KC. Feeling the need to choose a denomination, Tiffany and Jeff decided to affiliate with the Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC). They began attending Harvest Ridge where Tiffany soon became the Children’s Ministry Pastor. A year later the church entered into a season of transition, and Tiffany and Jeff were asked to step in as interim co-lead pastors. In 2020, the couple was called and confirmed to continue pastoring the church. Tiffany was ordained by the ECC in 2022. In their function as co-pastors, Tiffany and Jeff share one position, but divide the roles and responsibilities. Tiffany focuses primarily on organizational leadership, Children’s Ministry, and pastoral care. Jeff serves as the primary teacher and preacher. They also co-parent their two young children, Kara (b. 2018) and Emet (b. 2020).
