About Jeff Davidson
Jeff and his wife Becky, started Rising Above Ministries when they realized the incredible gift and blessing their own son with special needs (Jon Alex) was to them. Jeff spent 16 years in the corporate world prior to being called to the ministry. Jeff served for several years as a pastor on the staff of The River Community Church in Cookeville Tennessee. Jeff then felt God’s calling to found Rising Above and become God’s ambassador or missionary to the special needs community. Jeff likes to say he was chosen to be the father of a child with special needs, and then called to be a missionary to other families. In addition to leading and directing all aspects of Rising Above Ministries , Jeff is a writer and speaker who enjoys speaking at churches, conferences, events and to groups, ministering to special needs families and individuals. He blogs regularly at his site, GoodnightSuperman.com. Jeff is also one of the writers for Not Alone (specialneedsparenting.net) and is a contributing author at comfortinthemidstofchaos.com. He is also the special needs team member/writer at 1corinthians13parenting.com. In addition, Jeff serves on the advisory Board at Disability Matters.
