In 1988, Jeff Perry founded St. Louis Family Church--a life-giving, Jesus-centered, Bible-based church in Chesterfield, Missouri, approximately 25 miles southwest of downtown St. Louis. SLFC began with 128 people and has since grown into a thriving congregation of approximately 5,000.
Jeff also founded Service International, a non-profit disaster relief and recovery organization dedicated to helping people. Whether it's mucking out mud-filled homes in New Orleans, Louisiana, or building safe and sturdy houses for tsunami survivors in Sri Lanka, or restoring a busy marketplace in Kosovo, SI daily fulfills its mission statement to Honor God and Help People.
Jeff possesses a passion for Jesus, and his down-to-earth teaching style, his gift for illustrating God's Word with colorful, real-life stories, and his delightful sense of humor make it easy to relate to and learn from this pastor. He knows the Word of God and embraces it enthusiastically as he speaks life and encouragement into weary hearts and shows young and old how to apply God's principles to everyday life. Jeff and his wife, Patsy, have four children.
