was serving as secretary of the group As Jeff tells the story, "They
asked Bill to pray several different times. I noticed that in his prayers
he spoke to Jesus as a personal Saviour, and he knew Him very
intimately. This really troubled me because I had been taught that
Adventists were not Christians, and yet I wanted to know more about
why this fellow acted like that if he was a Seventh-day Adventist!"
When Jeff felt called to the ministry and moved to Thomasville with

the charismatic movement and became impressed that he needed to
know Jesus personally. When he moved to his first district he became
more involved with charismatic believers. When many of his members
showed no interest in charismatic worship, Jeff turned to his Bible and
commentaries and discovered that there was no biblical basis for much
of the charismatic teaching.
Thus began a period of intensive Bible study. "I vowed that I would
no longer allow anybody to persuade me of what the Bible said I
would find out for myself." It was at this period of his life he met Bill
