About FCA

Welcome to Northwest Ohio FCA!

Since 1954, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes has been challenging coaches and athletes on the professional, college, high school, junior high and youth levels to use the powerful medium of athletics to impact the world for Jesus Christ.

FCA is the largest interdenominational, school-based, Christian sports organization in America. FCA focuses on serving local communities by equipping, empowering and encouraging people to make a difference for Christ.

Jeff has been actively involved in the church and parachurch community in northwest Ohio his entire adult life and has linked arms with our local & area staff, advisory board and volunteers to continue the good work they’ve done growing and expanding FCA’s influence and impact. Jeff says, “We’ve got a tremendous team to impact coaches and athletes for Jesus Christ in three areas (Toledo, Buckeye Border & District 8) encompassing 25 counties in northwest Ohio and southern Michigan. I’m excited!” Jeff is focused strongly on donor, board and staff development.

For more than 25 years, Jeff’s role as Executive Director of the Owens Community College Foundation, auctioneer, master of ceremonies and development consultant has resulted in raising millions of charitable dollars for various organizations in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan, including Owens' Foundation, Toledo Christian Schools; St. John’s Jesuit, St. Francis de Sales, Central Catholic, and Maumee Valley Country Day high schools; Mercy Foundation, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Rotary Club of Maumee, Boys & Girls Clubs, Toledo Opera Association, and many more. As a community service leader, Jeff maintains an extensive network within the philanthropic community.

His unique professional background including roles as the head of the Owens Community College development department from 2015-2016, Series 7 registered financial advisor from 2006-2015; and Realtor, auctioneer and entrepreneur from 1992-2006; serve him well in FCA. A University of Toledo alumnus and resident of northwest Ohio for most of his life, Jeff is a past president of Rotary Club of Maumee, where he continues to serve on the service foundation board.  He’s even a former State of Ohio Champion Auctioneer (yes, they have those…) and gratefully serves in the communities that have allowed him to be successful. His outside interests include coaching youth sports, golf, playing drums in his church worship band, singing, boating, concerts and all things associated with The Ohio State University (especially football!) Jeff and his wife Dana reside in Whitehouse, OH and have two grown sons, Seth and Noah.
