Jeff was our ‘Poster Pastor,’ as the quintessential implementer of the No Man Left Behind model, method and mindset.  He wove our Field Staff together into ‘a fellowship and a force.’

Thank you for not just being a Coach but a friend. Your example of obedience and perseverance have been admirable, an example to aspire to become. MHO (Ministry of Hangout Out) and BLA (Barnabas Luncheon Appts.) will forever be ingrained in my life.

When it comes to understanding and ministering to men of all ages, Jeff Kisiah is the rare blend of experience and expertise, driven by an immediately recognized passion.  He is rightly called “Coach” due to his process approach to training men and developing them into followers of Jesus who then reach other men.

You have been the consummate Field Commander in the Battle 4 Men’s Souls. I cannot express my gratitude to God for the leadership, motivation and brotherhood you have provided for all of us on the Frontlines in the Battlefield.

Jeff Kisiah is a spiritual life coach disguised as a national men’s ministry leader. With decades of experience, Jeff is in a rare position to see the field and anticipate the play like few can where the hearts of men are fought and won. I would highly recommend Jeff if you want a leader who can create momentum and coach men in a winning culture that turns fan who clap into followers who change for Christ.
