In 2009, Scofield Memorial Church called Dr. Jeffery J. VanGoethem as Pastor.  Dr. VanGoethem is a native of Norway, Michigan (a small town in Michigan's Upper Peninsula). He is a 1974 graduate of Norway High School. Following graduation from college, Jeff attended Marquette University Law School in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Noticing his deepening desire to learn and study God's Word, he decided to forsake a legal career and open his life to the work of the Gospel.

He enrolled at Dallas Seminary in August of 1978 and completed his studies in 1982, graduating with the Th.M. degree. His major concentration of study was New Testament Literature and Exegesis.

Through his years of ministry, Pastor Jeff has been a friend to many Christian organizations and has been sought out as a speaker and teacher in churches, camps, schools, and other settings. He has traveled and ministered in over twenty countries, including India and several countries in Africa, and an equal number of states. He served for over ten years on the board of RHMA, a church planting organization, and was the founding school board president of Cornerstone Christian Academy in Bloomington, Illinois.
