Helping Disciples Become Disciplers

Who We Are

Our passion is equipping the next generation of leaders to be committed to scriptural truth, Christian discipleship, and intergenerational relationships. We want to find leaders like this for the church and for generations to come, and we want to see how the Lord uses them.
Emet is a Hebrew word for “truth” and often is translated to mean stability, reliability, and faithfulness. These values define us at Emet Ministries and as followers of Jesus. We want to see others pursue the truth of God by being stable, reliable, and faithful in their relationships with others. The Lord knows we need more of that in our communities. Our ministry revolves around discipling young people in truth and these corresponding traits. Young men and women must be taught the truth about God, His Word, and be able to dissect culture. We are at a pivotal moment in our country’s history where we desperately need a younger generation of leaders committed to the truth of Scripture, the discipleship of Christians, and intergenerational relationships. We find and equip those leaders because we believe the world is at stake.

How It Started

The Lord led Jeff to create Emet Ministries in January 2023. After a long and successful career in law and banking, Jeff pivoted to full-time ministry, investing in younger generations because he believes they will lead our churches and communities. Christian came to Evansville in 2015 to attend the University of Southern Indiana and, two years later, met Jeff providentially in a Chick-Fil-A line before joining his small group. Through their rich, shared history of friendship and discipleship, taking the next step of starting Emet Ministries together was a no-brainer. Together they are deeply committed to seeing people in the local church discipled to be devoted followers of Jesus who impact the people and communities around them.


We equip Godly leaders to disciple others so they can call the Church to witness the preeminence of Jesus Christ in their communities.


Our vision is to raise, train, and equip members of the younger generation to defend the Bible and our historic Christian faith by knowing God through intergenerational discipleship as they move from being on the fringes of the church to leaders at its heart.


Commitment to Truth

We believe the claims of Scripture are true because they are from God and correspond to reality, even though our understanding of them may be incomplete. The Bible contains completely true and authoritative propositions, but its truth cannot be limited to propositional statements. God's truth is expansive and its scope is sometimes beyond our comprehension, yet we live in a covenantal relationship with God wholly submitted to His reality.

Theology in Relationship

We believe we learn about God and ourselves through intergenerational relationships anchored in Scripture, so we started Emet Ministries and the Veritas Institute to cultivate them. We've found the best way to learn about God and the truth of Scripture is by deep, impactful relationships with others. You can find us in coffee shops, at lunches, and in each other's homes as we pursue the knowledge of God together.

Christ in Everything

We believe the Bible teaches that the good news of Jesus Christ is about individual forgiveness and the renewal of all creation. We equip people to think about the reign of Jesus Christ in every aspect of life, including business, art, government, school, and the home. Christ is in everything and in Him all things hold together.


"The essence of Christian obedience is not do's and don'ts but personal allegiance to Jesus."
