"Many Christians have unwittingly embraced the idea that “church” is a once-a-week event rather than a community of Spirit-empowered people; that “ministry” is what pastors do on Sundays rather than the 24/7 calling of all believers; and that “discipleship” is a program rather than the normal state of every follower of Jesus.
Drawing on his experience as a pastor and church planter, Jeff Vanderstelt wants us to see that there’s more—much more—to the Christian life than sitting in a pew once a week. God has called his people to something bigger: a view of the Christian life that encompasses the ordinary, the extraordinary, and everything in between."
As the visionary leader of Saturate, Jeff gets to spend his time doing what he loves – training disciples of Jesus to make more disciples of Jesus. With great joy and mirth, Jeff leads the Saturate team (picture hands moving furiously across a white board), travels nationally and globally equipping others to do the work of the ministry, and writing (Saturate, Saturate Field Guide, and Fluent (Spring of 2017).
Jeff also leads the Soma Family of Churches and is the teaching pastor at Doxa Church in Bellevue, WA. He and Jayne, his wife of 22 years, have three children; Haylee, Caleb, and Maggie. Additionally, Jeff has been known to be swayed by the promise of Skittles, licorice, or a good bottle of wine. (Keep that tidbit in your back pocket, you never know when it might come in handy.)
