My name is Jeff Mihal (your pal). I grew up in the Greater Milwaukee area and attended the University of Wisconsin-Stout, where I met my wife Toni. After graduating with my Hospitality and Tourism degree, I worked as a sales manager throughout the U. S. with companies like Marriott, Starwood, and Hyatt. We moved to the Seattle area in 2006 and immediately started attending Church on the Ridge. I later joined the staff in 2013 as the Director of Guest Services.

I accepted Christ into my heart at a winter youth camp in 1987. My relationship with Christ grew very strong until college, where I went my own way. I continued down a self-centered path until 2001, when I re-committed my life to Christ. He took my focus away from myself and turned it toward loving him and loving people.

As the Director of Guest Services, my job is to ensure everyone has a positive experience at Church on the Ridge. I love meeting, caring for, and connecting with everyone who walks through our doors. To boil it down, my passion is PEOPLE.

When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my wife and two daughters, entertaining my friends, and listening to live blues music.
