Jeffery King became the evangelist for Lakeside church of Christ beginning in January 2023.  Jeffery is married to Jacqueline King, better known as Jackie, and they have blended family of four adult children and two grandchildren. Before becoming a minister, Jeffery worked for 17 years as a truckdriver. Jeffery, however, always wanted to preach the Gospel.

With the help of the Eastern Shore church of Christ in Daphne, Alabama, Jeffery left truck driving and went to the Northwest Florida School of Biblical Studies to prepare for the ministry. Upon completing his education, Jeffery worked for a year and a half as the Associate Minister at the Eastern Shore church before coming to Lakeside. As an evangelist, Jeffery’s seeks to strengthen the brothers and sisters at Lakeside and to bring the lost to Christ. Jeffery works with the brothers and sisters at Lakeside to follow Jesus’s call, “to let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify our Father in heaven.”
