I am at lost for words. Jeff played a big part of my life. During my senior year in high school I was trapped. I could not trust anyone. I then, went to Bible house and came across his album. His voice filled with the Holy Ghost, blessed me. I would drive to the country side and just listen to him singing and empowered my heart praying to God for deliverance. His songs kept my heart beating for God and kept me rooted in faith during my difficult times in High school. My deepest condolences to his family. Though I have never met you in person, spiritually I have found a wonderful brother in Christ. RIP.

I just learned that Jeff passed away. He was my neighbor when I lived on Balboa Island and I would see him and talk to him quite often when he was walking his little dog. He was such a nice man. My condolences to his family. Rest in peace.

Decided to look Jeff up and I am so sad to learn of his passing..I waited on him and his family for quite awhile in Ontario They had 5 or 6 children at the time and always sat in my station..Ran into him after I moved to Las Vegas at my job at the MGM Grand and was sad to learn he and Renny had divorced ..I have fond memories of all of them and him always calling me Ruth even yrs later at the MGM...Don't know if he did it cause he could never remember my name or what but we would have a good laugh about it !!!! He will be missed for sure

I first saw Jeff on T.B.N. when he first appeared on the network. He sang On Holy Ground and the Anointing fell on me at home. I took my son and daughter to Jeff and Reeni's Anaheim Outreach during the weekend of Fathers Day. Both days. He was my brother in Christ since then. He was born exactly two months in 1950 after me. He was very special in my life. He was my friend on Facebook and I messaged him sometimes. I love his music. Got to see his photos of family and Twinky. So sorry to hear of his passing. Sending my condolences to his family. From Marcy Adams.

I am so sad to hear of Jeff's passing but I'm rejoicing in the fact that he is singing in glory!!!! Heaven gained an angel with an angel's voice! I saw Jeff twice in concert and was slain in the Spirit when he prayed for me. He served the Lord well!

So sad to hear this. Met Jeff when he was a guest singer at The Life Church, Mission Viejo, ...Ca. I was surprised he even knew my name since the church was a good size. His talent and funny stories will be missed. I'm sure the angels were waiting to welcome Jeff home.

My heart goes out to Jeff's family. I went to see The Original Jesus Christ Superstar and Jeff was amazing. I was only about 10yrs old but the whole production made an incredible impression on me. His voice and performance was truly a blessing

I so enjoyed his love for Christ and how he went after people for Jesus. Jeff it seemed did not want anyone to miss out on receiving Jesus. He now has his reward and is singing in the presence of Almighty God.

Jeff Fenholt was a committed man of God. I met him when he came to California and I saw him sing and preach. I desired to have the commitment for Jesus Christ that I saw upon his life. He was anointed. His testimony inspired me to surrender to the Lordship of Jesus Christ in my life.
May the Lord comfort his family and friends and give them the grace to continue their lives in the strength of the Lord! Precious to the Lord is the death of His saints.

Jeff came to visit our island many, many years ago. His voice (dedicated to our Lord) touched us all. Ephesians 6:12 'For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual host of the wickedness in high places.' Jeff did this.

You will surely be missed. One thing I'll be doing is listening to your music to remember. I would say in my own opinion the best album you ever were on was Joshua . Surrender. I hope I'll be here and you and heaven singing to God. R.I.P. Jeff fenholt. SANCTUARY.
