Lighthearted yet dedicated, earnest yet laidback, Jeff Bennett is Harbour’s lead pastor. He loves his work, Harbour and God. He has a passion for sharing the message of Jesus, whether he’s leading a mission trip, speaking at Harbour or “just” spending time with his kids.
Jeff came to Harbour from Chicago in March 2002 to serve as director of student ministries here. About two years later, he became lead pastor. In addition to communicating God’s Word during Sunday services, he works with the staff team and a committed group of elders to guide the church in discerning and following God’s vision for Harbour. Jeff has many gifts, among them being able to recognize and cultivate the skills and talents that God has placed in others.
Jeff and his wife Sue have three children: Isaiah, Elizabeth, and Hannah.
