Neal Jeffrey

Neal Jeffrey, former All-American quarterback at Baylor University and quarterback for the San Diego Chargers, learned the meaning of overcoming early in life. A stutterer since childhood, Neal had to find a way to “get through what he couldn’t get over” to achieve his lifelong dreams. Today, he is one of America’s most powerful and passionate communicators, speaking for corporate conferences, national conventions, sales organizations, sports teams – twice for the New York Yankees – school districts, student groups and churches from coast to coast. Everywhere he goes, he inspires audiences to go “Higher, Swifter, Stronger” in the critical areas of life. In addition to a busy speaking schedule, Neal has served for 36 years as an associate minister at the 40,000-member Prestonwood Church. He and his wife Sheila live in the Highland Village and have three grown children and 11 grandchildren.
