Jeff Hart

A graduate of Oregon State University, Jeff Hart went on to play eleven years of professional football in the NFL. The majority of his career was spent with the Baltimore Colts, where he met chaplain Larry Moody, former President of Search Ministries. After retiring from football, Jeff was the Oregon State Director for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Six years later, his passion for helping others find reasonable answers to their questions about God led him into ministry with Search. Since 1992, Jeff has been the Portland Area Director for Search, serving the entire state of Oregon. Jeff and his wife Geneva live in Canby, OR. Their son, Beau and his wife Angela live in Williston, ND. Their daughter Sydney and her husband Tom live in Maple Valley, WA.
