Jeff Reeves was born in Atlanta, Georgia, and grew up in the neighboring city of East Point where he attended Colonial Hills Christian School. It was there he accepted Christ in a chapel service in 1972. He was baptized and very active in every facet of his neighborhood church, Jefferson Avenue Baptist, until moving to Mobile, Alabama in late 1979. He met his beautiful bride, Karen, in Mobile and they were married in February of 1983. They have two grown children and one grandson. Their daughter Lauren is married to Patrick Bice of Faunsdale, Alabama, and their son is Leland. Jeff and Karen’s son, Lee, lives in Huntsville, Alabama. The Reeves have served six churches during their thirty-five years of ministry in Mississippi, Georgia, and Alabama . Jeff attended the University of Mobile, in Mobile, Alabama, and Leavell College in New Orleans, Louisiana receiving an undergraduate degree in Christian Education and Church Music. He received a Master of Arts in Pastoral Ministry from the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. Jeff was licensed to the Gospel Ministry by Lagoon Baptist Church in Gulf Shores, Alabama, in 1984 and ordained by the First Baptist Church, Greensboro, Georgia, in 1997.

Small gatherings of followers of Christ meeting on their own, facilitated by a leader, are not a new phenomenon. In fact, in the first few hundred years of the church, these kinds of groups were pretty much the only way to experience church. Luke describes this type of group in Acts 2:42-47, and throughout years of church history, the value of these groups hasn’t changed. At FBC we are creating small groups of people just like what Luke wrote about over 2,000 years ago. At First Baptist we call these groups First Family Gatherings.
