Welcome to JeffStruecker.com


A decorated member of the U.S. Army's most elite fighting corps, Jeff Struecker was prominently featured in the national best-seller "Black Hawk Down", later made into a major motion picture.

In the city streets of Mogadishu, Somalia, Jeff was faced with his greatest fears. He was forced to rely on his skills and his "bullet-proof faith" to bring him through some of the most intense combat the U.S. Military has seen since the Vietnam War. Today, he challenges and inspires audiences with his gripping account of that experience under fire and in the face of death.

A man of courage and conviction, Jeff Struecker uses his personal story of survival on the battlefield to teach his listeners how they, too, can be prepared for any circumstances life has to offer.

Jeff is currently serving on staff at Calvary Baptist Church in Columbus, Georgia.
