Jeffrey Rudolph

In an amazing story, I began my ministry career here at First Assembly after having a life-changing encounter with Jesus Christ in 1980 at the age of 22 here at the church. Shortly after my salvation, I felt a call to the ministry, attended and graduated from Southeastern University and came on staff here at the church as the Young Marrieds’ Pastor.

Pastor Jeff & Kathy Rudolph

I met Kathy here and we were married in 1988 and we enjoyed a very successful ministry to the young married couples until 1992 when God called us to be the Pastors at New Life Assembly in Marathon Key. In 2001, we accepted the call to Portsmouth, NH where we were the pastors of Connect Community Church until January of 2012. In February of 2012, after 20 years of being away, the congregation here at First Assembly called on us to come back to our spiritual “home”, the place of my ministry’s beginning; and to be the new Lead Pastor.

Kathy and I have three children: Our sons Jeffrey and Christian and our daughter Jordan.

When not here at the church, I absolutely love to salt water fish and ride my Harley!
