Hi, I’m Jeff Calloway. I want to welcome you to my blog and website. This site is a place where I share my life experience of working in the corporate world as well as spending the last twenty years in various aspects of pastoring, starting new churches and coaching. I focus on Life Changing Vision that every reader can achieve and I teach those principles through my blog posts here. I invite you to sign up and receive these posts directly into your email two to three times a week.
I grew up in Knoxville, TN. the youngest of 10 children and was the only one in my family to make it through college and earn a degree. It was Roane State Community College that I met my wonderful wife Julie and we were married in 1981. After college, I went to work in public accounting and then transitioned into the corporate marketplace working in Accounting management for Navistar International, a Fortune 500 company with accounting offices in Knoxville. It was there that I started to understand and implement vision and leadership.
Currently, I have the privilege of serving as the Send City Missionary with the North American Mission Board in Cleveland. I also have established church planter training schools that focus on training and coaching church planters in the Cleveland Metro area. This is an area that really excites my passion as I have the opportunity to train, coach, and build into the lives of dozens of men who are starting new churches from the ground up.
An area I have been involved with for myself over the years is writing. I label myself as a Missionary Writer. What do I mean by being a Missionary Writer? Here is my definition of the type of writer I want to become — “A Christian missionary’s job is to spread the good news and love of Jesus Christ. They are willing to do so at a great cost. Some at the cost of their own life. They believe have a message worth dying for and will do whatever it takes to spread that message.That is the the kind of writer I want to become. I believe I have a message that people need to hear and I believe so strongly in that message, that I am willing to sacrifice for it to be heard.”
I am married to my wonderful wife Julie, and we have two awesome daughters, Sarah and Emily, a wonderful son-in-law Matt, a great grandson, Caleb and two beautiful granddaughters, Ellie and Addie.
