Some things about Jeff Hoglen:
My name is Jeff Hoglen and I'm first and foremost a follower of Christ, a husband to Tonya as well as a father and grandfather. I've been a pastor for over 19 years and have experienced quite a bit as a church planter, pastor and missions coordinator.
I started pastoring in 2000 and was initially involved in youth and children’s ministry. Later I entered the world of church planting and have planted or assisted in church planting in the USA, Africa and Asia. I am currently pastoring Church at the Creek in Spring Lake NC. This was my first experience doing a replant. (Revitalizing a dying church)
I have the honor of providing oversight to numerous churches in NC and SC through an organization that my wife and I started called Open Arms International Ministries. In the past 5 years, I have teamed with my spiritual fathers to serve as apostolic oversight for DOVE International Philippines which consists of over 29 churches.
Over the past 2 decades I have written various Seminars and books such as: "Obeying the Call", "Here Am I - A Call to Biblical Missions", “As You Go – Missions as a Lifestyle” and his latest book for discipleship called "I Believe - Basics of the Christian Faith".
In 2015 I became a certified coach, speaker and trainer with the John Maxwell Team. I have coached ministry Startups as well as fledgling entrepreneurs, offering 1 on 1 coaching, and group coaching.
