Chaplain Jeff Cox will be this month’s speaker
at the United Methodist Men’s Monthly Fellowship and Prayer Breakfast as he comes to tell us about the incredible impact the Chesapeake Jail Ministries has in our city. Jeff’s life didn’t start out concentrated on ministry as he served as a Chesapeake Deputy Sheriff for 16 years. It was then on May 14
, 2007, during a horrible and near fatal car accident, that Jeff would come to see, through his long recovery, that God might have a different job for him
Jeff suffered traumatic brain trauma, a broken left knee, three fractured vertebrae in his neck, broken ribs, a fractured cheek bone and a lot of pain. This prompted much thought about his future. Following a couple of months in the hospital Jeff endured months of physical therapy. That’s a lot of time to talk to the Lord and to your family about your next path in life, even in the hardships of taking a step.
Jeff’s own thought and words couldn’t have said it any better. “God took what the enemy meant for bad and turned it to good.” Jeff is working as a Chaplain in the Chesapeake City Jail Ministry touching men’s lives in ways that could never have been done from a patrol car. Now he can take time to listen to their problems and use his own life experiences to show them how God does still reach out and touch those who need him. He inspires others to never give up on God’s love because God will never give up on them.
Pictured with Jeff Cox is his beautiful wife of 5 years, Terri Cox. God has reached out into a man’s life to make a change that will affect hundreds or perhaps spiritually. Come be our guest for breakfast on Sunday May 19
, and perhaps you can reach out and make a difference in just one life.
This will be an ‘all you can eat’ breakfast
with Scrambled Eggs, Sausage, Ham, Fried Apples, Grits, Biscuits and, of course, Pancakes! Join us in the Social hall at 6:45am for a great meal, an awesome speaker, and God given fellowship! All are welcome!
