Hi I’m Jeffrey. I am a student at the University of North Dakota with a passion for technology, engineering, and Christ. I enjoy working in groups and leading teams. I have a passion for Christ and spreading the Gospel. I volunteer at my church on almost a weekly basis and help with community outreach events like Vacation Bible School (VBS). The Bible should be our guide and support structure for life. Contact me below and give my social accounts a look.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.Philippians 4:13 – New King James Version
