Christian rock's hottest band, "Grand_design" is heading to the top! Unfortunately, lead singer Johnny C (Kevin Max of dcTalk) is personally spiralling down. His nightly concert performances about Jesus are a stark contrast of his selfish lifestyle he finds himself in each morning. At the height of his fame Johnny's world comes to a crashing halt and thus begins a turbulent journey back home to find out if his shattered marriage can be restored. Now at odds with his long time band leader and friend James (Jeff Deyo of Sonicflood) over his lifestyle Johnny is removed from the band. Coached by his mentor, Proff (Kerry Livgren of Kansas) and a eccentric homeless man, Popeye (Tom Wright of World Trade Center, Barbershop). Will Johnny find his way back?
Jeff's first family film, RISING STARS, starring Fisher Stevens and Rebecca St. James will be released later this year.
Jeff's Royal Ranger history started as a Buckaroo. Jeff achieved all awards as a Buckaroo, Pioneer, and Trailblazer, culminating with receiving the GMA in 1983 (#835). Jeff was also heavily involved in the Frontiersman Camping Fraternity serving as District Scout for the state of Louisiana in 1984. The Royal Ranger Code has served as a foundation for his entire life. If he had to summarize what he learned in Royal Rangers in one word, that word would be RESPECT. Respect for God, his family, and the world.
