Jeff Newnum

Jeff_edited-1-608x655Jeff came to Christ at an early age, and cannot remember a time he did not have a personal relationship with Him but it was when he was in the 5th Infantry Division as a Cavalry Scout in the United States Army that he came to know the Lord Jesus Christ in a real way.

In 1993 Jeff left the Army and came to Prescott to attend college, where he met his wife Lindsay. He and Lindsay have three children at home:  Spencer 15, Luke 11, Annelise 10, and one married daughter, Makenna.  Jeff became a Deputy Sheriff for the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office in 1994 and is currently the Captain who oversees the Law Enforcement Services Division.   He has served in various roles within YCSO including Homicide, Search and Rescue Coordinator, Search & Rescue Rotary Wing Pilot, SWAT (Hostage and Crisis Negotiator Team Leader), Traffic & DUI enforcement, as well as undercover Narcotics.

In 2007, Jeff was privileged to be licensed as a Pastor with the Yavapai Baptist Association. He loves to teach the Word of God and believes the expository teaching of the Word and application thereof fuels the soul and sanctifies us.  Lindsay is currently serving as Cornerstone Nursery Director and in addition to serving as an Elder, Jeff is leading a Community Group and helps on the Set Up/Tear Down team.
