Pastoral Intern Jeff Geiger

My name is Jeff Geiger, and I will be serving as the Intern for the next year.
I recently moved here from Jacksonville, Florida where I had been working as a librarian for the Jacksonville Public Library. I was born and raised in Northeast Ohio, near Cleveland. I was born and raised a Lutheran, and have been involved in different church activities from an acolyte when I was younger, to vice-president and secretary of the Church council later in life. I have a history degree from The University of Montana in Missoula and a Masters in Library and Information Science from Kent State.

My family and I moved here from Jacksonville, Florida, where I had been working in the public library there and taking classes at Wartburg online. I am married to my wife, Sue, who is a Registered Nurse in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at the Stead Family Children’s Hospital at the University of Iowa. We have two daughters, Hannah and Bethany, who are 11 and 7.

Coming from the library world, I have an interest in books and reading. I think that this has been enhanced with my history degree. So I enjoy reading and collecting books on different subjects, but mostly history and religious topics. I have also started working on my family history and genealogy. There hasn’t been much time lately for me to work on this, but it is something that I continue to work as I am able. I have been involved in Trinity Lutheran Church in Jacksonville before our move. I have been a worship assistant and served ona few committees, plus two terms on the church council and as a co-leader of the adult Sunday School.

My wife and I have been here in Marion since the beginning of April, when she started her job at the University. We have enjoyed getting to know the community and find some fun things to do around town. I look forward to meeting and getting to know the people of Faith and getting more involved in the life of the church!
