Jeff Stumph: Friend to the Fatherless

Posted by Heather Sewell on January 02, 2014  /   Posted in Orphan Care

Many lives have been impacted for the gospel through our friend and brother in Christ, Jeff Stumph. Instead of talking about the impact he has made on the lives of the OCA staff, I wanted to highlight some of your comments made throughout the last year. Feel free to comment and remember Jeff for the God-fearing man that he was. We are so thankful for the time God gave him on this Earth with us. His memory will live on with all of us, and the children and youth that were impacted will never be the same. Jeff will live in all of us through his dedication to the gospel that he instilled into us.

Jeff was my 7th grade camp counselor at Camp Country Lake 10 years ago. I’ll never forget the wisdom he instilled in me the week we were there. It was an honor to serve with him during the Southeast Easter Pageant. Rest easy my brother. You fought the good fight. I know you are dancing and singing with the Lord our God.”

“I had the honor of knowing such a great and loving man Jeff Stumph. Jeff had a heart of GOLD. He love Jesus with all his heart and was there for ANYONE who needed him. Jeff will be greatly missed! I know yesterday that GOD greeted him saying well done, you good and faithful servant!”

“A guy who has had faith in me since the moment he met me. He pushed me to never give up. He’s been by my side since November of 2007. Crazy how the tables turn, and now I get to be by his side and have faith in him, and push him everyday to NEVER GIVE UP! Praying for recovery! Love ya!”

“I know Jeff Stumph is singing, dancing and basking in the Lord today and for that I am overjoyed. My human heart is sad to know that he is no longer with us here on Earth. I pray for all the Stumph’s, and their friends, in the coming days and weeks. Know you are loved by many…many. Heaven has received one of our best people here on Earth.”

We at Orphan Care Alliance will humbly press on fighting the good fight by loving and caring for the children that need it most in this world.  We will do this in honor of our brother Jeff, who blazed trails with his passion for Christ.

Visitation will be at Highlands Funeral Home on Taylorsville Road Friday, January 3rd, from 11:00 a.m-8:00 p.m.

There will be a visitation from 10:00-12:00 p.m. at Southeast Christian Church on Saturday, January 4th with the funeral being held at 12:00 p.m.

The burial will be at Cave Hill Cemetary following the funeral.

    The one thing I’m sure of is that Jeff used his energy to make sure that the young people he worked with knew that despite the absence of parents, they each had a loving and caring Father.

    Our hearts are heavy at the news of your loss. We also lost one of our foster parents on Christmas, who was a foster mom to teen boys. May the Lord rise up more people to be like them. Our deepest sympathy…
