Jeff Zimmerman

Jeff is the co-founder of LightShine Ministries with Tom Denlinger.  Jeff was born December 15, 1958.  He grew up in a strong Christian home and received Christ at age 12.  In college at Penn State University, he had a significant experience with the Holy Spirit through the ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ that enabled him to realize how to truly experience and walk with God. After graduating from Penn State, he went through a Youth With A Mission Discipleship Training School and led mission teams through Eastern Mennonite Missions to Belize, Dominican Republic, and Kenya.  In 1984, he began working at a youth center in Mount Joy, Pennsylvania.  He saw that music could be a significant tool in reaching youth.  This is where he met Tom Denlinger.  Jeff began working with Tom in 1990 laying the foundation for LightShine and our music ministry.  He worked with administration, finances, and developing the non-profit status with the IRS.  He also worked in overseeing LightShine’s weekly Christian music show called “Thunder Zone” on a local Christian radio station and did the local promotion of concert events for our outreach band, Sardonyx.  The past number of years he has worked with finances and administration as the ministry focused on work in Alaska.  Connect with Jeff on Facebook.
