He brings his 24 years of experience as an administrator and educator to this role. He served as Principal for five years in the School District of Lancaster (SDOL) at the Phoenix Academy, an alternative middle and high school.

In addition to teaching, he has coached many soccer teams, including as the Head Coach of the Varsity Boys Soccer Team during his time at Dorchester County Schools, and for numerous under 6-15 (year old) teams in local Lancaster soccer clubs, and last year as a co-coach for the LM Middle School boy’s soccer team.

Jeffrey shares, “It is both a blessing and honor to return to LM. I am excited about being part of the LM community, watching LM grow and helping our students navigate life from a faith-based perspective.

He also shares, “Having been a Principal, I believe in bringing strong characteristics of organization, attention to detail, communication, the ability to work with others, adaptability and flexibility, and overall knowledge of safety and administrative duties.

Jeffrey attends Living Hope Community Church. In his free time he enjoys taking part in any activity that involves his son, including camping, hiking, playing all sports (especially soccer), and heading to the beach. 

Please join us in warmly welcoming Jeffrey to his new role at Lancaster Mennonite. We look forward to opportunities for you to meet him in the future.
