Our Staff

  • JEFF STONE / lead minister

    When invited to lead Batesville Christian Church, Jeff felt called to combine his years of solid ministry experience with the potential that exists at BCC, to make an eternal impact on Batesville and the surrounding areas. He works to communicate God’s message with stories, humor, and clarity.

    Jeff, a graduate of Oak Hills High School and Cincinnati Christian University, is married to his college sweetheart and they have three grown children and two grandchildren. He enjoys Saddlebred horses, watching sports, being outdoors, and music.

    Jeff loves to watch the “life change” that people undergo as they discover God's grace and begin to grow closer to the Lord. That never gets old and it drives Jeff daily in his conversations with all he encounters.

He and his wife, Carli, met at Johnson University where they served together in the Student Government Association and were married in July 2020.
