A native and life-long resident of Warner Robins, Georgia, Rev. Jeff Cleghorn served for 20 years on the staff of Second Baptist Church as Associate Pastor for Instrumental Music (6 years part-time, 14 years full-time). While serving the Lord vocationally at Second Baptist Church, he simultaneously traveled on weekends with his family and other regional Southern Gospel artists performing concerts throughout the southeastern United States.
In 2008, Jeff left the security of a regular ministry position and steady paycheck and followed the leadership of the Holy Spirit into full-time music evangelism. His concert and music ministry has carried him into many churches of varied denominations sizes in eleven different states as well as two foreign countries.
Through his ministry, Jeff is able to provide piano concerts for your church services or other events such as senior adult gatherings, homecomings, banquets, Bible conferences, etc. With his experience as a choral director, orchestra conductor, pianist, and vocalist, Jeff is also available as a worship leader for revival meetings. He has been blessed to serve as crusade pianist for Bailey Smith’s Real Evangelism Conferences across the country, and has also played for Phil Waldrep Celebrators’ Conferences. In addition to his full-time solo ministry, Jeff continues to travel on a limited basis with his family, performing Southern Gospel music concerts as THE CLEGHORNS.
Jeff says, “God has put a song in my heart. Whenever I sit down at the piano keyboard, my desire is that the listener hears God sing that song through my hands. He alone is worthy of all praise and glory.” The music that Jeff provides will be uplifting and encouraging to the people that hear. He is committed to providing music that is, above all, honoring to the Lord. That primary commitment to exalt the Savior will be evident as Jeff plays the piano or leads your people in worship.
The following statement summarizes Jeff’s basic doctrinal beliefs: I believe the Bible to be the infallible, inerrant Word of God. It is God’s only written word and is adequate for faith and life. I believe that Christ is the only begotten Son of God. He was born of a virgin, lived a perfect life, died an atoning death, rose bodily from the grave, and will one day return for His church. He, Jesus, is the ONLY way by which anyone can be saved.
