Jeff has been with FBC Gulf Breeze from the very beginning. He is happily married to Shannon for 20+ years and together they have 3 kids. Full of laughter, dinner time at the Spooney house is far from normal…don’t be surprised if you have to duck to avoid being hit by a flying piece of chicken. Recently they discovered they could shoot peas a long distance by launching them from a fork. Mom still isn’t happy about it. On his days off you will find Jeff Scuba diving, fishing, or hunting with his family. More than anything else, Jeff is passionate about telling God’s story to all who will listen.
