Jeff Neikirk was born and raised in Wilmington, Delaware. He attended the University of Delaware and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in plant science. After marrying his wife Carey, they moved to Florida where Jeff worked as a manager in various medical equipment businesses for about 25 years. They were active in helping to plant two PCA churches in Pinellas County Florida, and Jeff served as a deacon and an elder in these churches. During this time, God began to work in both Jeff and Carey’s lives, and they felt a growing desire to pursue full time ministry. In 2002 their oldest daughter began college, their youngest son began kindergarten, and Jeff began attending Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, Florida. In May of 2006 Jeff graduated with an MDiv. Degree. About two years later, Jeff was called and ordained by Meadow Creek Presbyterian Church to be their pastor. Jeff and Carey are blessed with two grown daughters who are married and live in Florida and a son who is now in high school.
