Jeff Hammer

I grew up in the small town of Fairbury, IL. I graduated from high school in 1983 and joined the United States Air Force. I was stationed in Germany for 5 years, and Las Vegas for four years. In 1992, I left the Air Force to pursue my education graduating from Illinois State University in 1996 and Northern Baptist Theological Seminary with a Master of Divinity in 2002. I have been a pastor since 1997 serving churches in Wisconsin and Illinois.

My wife Dawn and I moved to Marengo in 2006 when I accepted the call to be the pastor of First Baptist Church of Marengo. We have three children and seven grandchildren that keep us very busy.
