Jeff Durbin.

American Jeff Durbin has a fascinating story to tell – and Trinity Reformed Presbyterian Church in Newtownabbey is providing an opportunity to hear it.

Jeff is a World Champion martial artist with five Black-Belts and has starred in popular video games and played Michaelangelo and Donatello for the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” franchise as well as Johnny Cage in “Mortal Combat” the world-tour.

He was a fighter in MTV’s “the Final Fu”. Jeff was also an abuser of alcohol and drug addict who almost died from an ecstasy overdose. He is now the Pastor of Apologia Church in Phoenix, Arizona and spends his life telling the good news of the God who stepped into the mess of his life and rescued him.

Jeff Durbin will share his story at a public meeting at Trinity Reformed Presbyterian Church on March 15 at 8pm.
