During his sixteen years as Senior Pastor, Jeff studied at Luther Rice Seminary and Tyndale Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, earning both his masters and doctoral degrees.
Here is an excerpt from the church website:University Park Church
was started by Dr. Jeff Wickwire
wife, Cathy, in 1990 at the Holiday Inn North in Fort Worth, TX.It quickly grew to 300-400 people, forcing a search for a larger facility.
In January of 1991, the church moved into the former Jettons Cafeteria in central Fort Worth.The former restaurant has been beautifully renovated into a 1,000 seat sanctuary with ample room for an exciting children's and youth ministry.University Park Church
now offers two Sunday morning services at 9:00 and 11:00 AM.It also meets Wednesday nights at 7:00 PM.
...Pastor Jeff has just released his book entitled No Aim, No Gain.
Those of you who have been on sports teams or worked in fitness programs will undoubtedly recognize the inference to No Pain, No Gain that you often hear from devotees of such activities.Here are some descriptive references to the book, which we have received, but not yet had time to read:
No Aim, No Gain
Aimless Life or Life Of Aim . . .
In No Aim, No Gain, Jeff Wickwire
takes a penetrating look at the most focused, unstoppable person in history - Jesus Christ.Pastor Jeff breaks His focus down into five major components: Purpose, Passion, Pursuit, Perseverance and Prize.
No Aim, No Gain
Jeff's book is for sale at Amazon.com
.Here are two reviews about the book from the Amazon website:
...We haven't yet received a reply from Pastor Jeff Wickwire to a message we sent him, but will try again soon.
We also found another Jeff Wickwire
listed on the internet but are not sure if the two listings are about the same Jeff Wickwire
.The second listing is for a website for Roller Bearing Elements, and Jeff Wickwire was a subcommittee chairman.
This website had to do with the design and manufacture of roller bearings, and was from the Richmond, VA area.It may be that there are two Jeff Wickwire's out there making names for themselves.
