JEFF VAN BEAVER
President & Founder

In 2002, God called me to start an outreach ministry based on the simple method of kindness. I have 30+ years of experience in ministry and I look forward to spending many more years serving the Lord through Acts 1:8 Ministry®! I am blessed with a wife and three children who have all served alongside me in ministry throughout the years. Read more about my calling and story here.

Lee Larsen
Ministry Coordinator

I have been involved with Acts 1:8 Ministry® even before its inception. My strongest and most personal blessing come from the many “God Moments” that are created through our Christian Kindness outreach; a vivid reminder that my Lord and Savior is right here beside me. I love doing various construction and repair projects, both at home and for others. I also go deer hunting and trout fishing when I can find the time.

I'm extremely grateful and humbled to commit my life to rallying for the Lord as we teach Christians to evangelize through kindness. I'm passionate about building relationships with donors and asking them to join Acts 1:8 Ministry on this journey to change lives for eternity.  I enjoy spending time with my amazing daughter as well as staying active through a variety of recreational activities.
