THE JESUS FILM PROJECT // JEFF + JANELL SEARLES

Searles Fam Photo global partnersUpon graduating from Penn State University in 1972, Jeff joined the staff of Campus Crusade for Christ, serving specifically with Athletes in Action – an outreach to student athletes. In 1980 he moved on to Campus Crusade’s headquarters to serve in the Development Department. From 1987-2007 he gave leadership in the Development Department of The JESUS Film Project, but in late 2007 was diagnosed with stage three Parkinson’s Disease.  His role now is to consult with ministry staff and to be a support to his wife Janell.

In 1972, Janell met Jeff in Indianapolis, IN where she was teaching high school art. They married in 1974 at which time she left teaching to join Campus Crusade for Christ full time. Her Art degree from Taylor University serves her well as she now uses her passion for the arts and technology as a JESUS film photographer, print-web graphic designer and audio/visual tech. She also serves on the leadership team of “Women for JESUS,” whose mission is to connect women with unique opportunities to pray with passion and give with purpose. They have established a global network of prayer to support the ministry and staff internationally, and this often involves leading these women on international trips so that they can better know how to pray. Janell designed and administers the secure “Women for JESUS” website that facilitates communication worldwide.
