[ Jeff Mead ]
Jeff Mead officially assumed the duties of children's pastor at First Assembly May 18, 2003, but his involvement in children's ministry actually began about ten years ago, right after Easter in 1994.After being saved in January of 1994, while still a senior at White Hall High School, Jeff began riding the First Assembly church bus to assist with the children who rode the bus.He does not really remember planning to become a bus assistant.That commitment just seemed to develop naturally.
By the summer of 1995, Jeff realized that there is a "call" on his life.From that time, he began to be increasingly involved in ministries and activities at First Assembly.Jeff literally has a passion to see children "know" God, rather than knowing "about" God, hence the name of his children's church group,F.O.G., Fingerprints of God.He desires that children literally develop godly character and learn, while they are young, to communicate with God as a Friend, to God as a worshiper, and for God as a witness.F.O.G. Kids' Club meets every Sunday morning at 8:30 and also at 11:00 A.M.
Pastor Jeff also directs other ministries to the children of the church and of the city.He conducts Sidewalk Sunday school (S.W.S.S.) in eight neighborhoods, such as Cottonwood, St. John's, Belle Meade, etc.This ministry takes fun, games, Bible lessons, character development, and the love of God to the street setting.He also joins with a very talented team to plan and coordinate an annual week of Vacation Bible School here at the church.
Late July each year, Jeff joins other staff members and volunteers to plan and host Pine Bluff Outreach, an intense ministry blitz geared toward the children of the city (neighborhoods covered by S.W.S.S.). Other youth and volunteers from a multi-state region join forces with First Assembly in the dual project of teaching and training young people while simultaneously ministering to the children of the city.
Pastor Jeff has lived in Pine Bluff all of his life.In fact, his mother (Clara), his brother (Martin), Martin's twin (Melissa), and his older brother (James) all still call Pine Bluff home.However, his perspective has changed a great deal from that of an unsaved teenager playing basketball at White Hall High School.He now knows that his call is to leave the Fingerprints of God on the lives of children.His commitment is to spend his life doing exactly that.

It's been a couple of weeks since Jeff Mead descended from his tower where he hoped to raise at least ,15,000 to help underprivileged, abused and neglected children.The tally, however, was about ,9,000 short, but the situation changed drastically thanks to an anonymous donor.
"Some people in Pine Bluff went out of state to visit relatives," Mead said."They took a copy of the newspaper article about what I was doing and their relative wrote us a ,9,000 check.God is still doing amazing things," Mead said recently from his office at First Assembly of God Church, where he's the youth minister.
The total amount donated now stands at just over ,17,400, he said.
Mead began his odyssey ,, destined to endure long, cold, stormy nights ,, on a tower in front of the Beacon of Light Christian Store in Chapel Village No. 2.
His purpose was to raise funds for "Up in the Air for Kids," a national organization which dispurses funds to approximately 10 charities based on need.According to Mead, the need is great everywhere, including at Pine Bluff.
The whole point of spending a week atop a 30-foot tower, Mead said, was to raise awareness and make children's issues so unavoidably visible to the public that people could not help but "see" the need and give to make a difference.
"I'm really excited about what's happening," Mead said, adding he was beginning to write thank you letters to all the sponsors, individuals and businesses that helped make his local effort for "Up in the Air for Kids" a success.
