Jeffrey C. Chambless was born in Long Island, NY. Raised as a Baptist believer by his mother, Annie P. Chambless, he was baptized into the body of Christ at the Shiloh Baptist Church at the age of 10 under the leadership of the late Rev. Dr. Morgan M. Days, Jr.
Jeffrey relocated to Buffalo, NY to attend Canisius College where he majored in Pre-Law with a minor in Religious Studies. At Canisius he met his future wife, Clarisse Y. Williams (Chambless) and they were blessed with their only child, Camille. The Lord led Jeffrey to join the Zion Missionary Baptist Church of Buffalo, NY under the leadership of the late Rev. Dr. Robert E. Baines, Sr. He was set aside to serve on the Deacon Board and shortly thereafter accepted the calling to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Later, being appointed to serve as the Youth Pastor and subsequently called on to act in the capacity of an Interim Pastor, Rev. Chambless gained practical experience in serving the needs of people in the church as well as in the community. After completing his assignment there, Jeffrey was led to join the White Rock Missionary Baptist Church to serve under the leadership of Rev. Dr. Ivery Daniels.
Continuing to be blessed of God, on October 12, 2014 Rev. Chambless was called to be the Pastor of the Mount Moriah Missionary Baptist Church of Buffalo, NY.
In furthering his education, Jeffrey attended Erie Community College majoring in police sciences, and currently attends the Christian Bible College and Seminary for theological studies.
He currently serves as a Member of the Baptist Ministers Conference of Buffalo NY and Vicinity, Delegate to the National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc., Chaplain for the Erie County Sheriffs Office, Chaplain at the Erie County Medical Center, Chaplain for the Kaleida Health System, Board of Directors for Teens In Progress (TIP) Youth Organization, Regional Committee for the NYS Department of Health AIDS Institute and Say Yes to Education Buffalo Clergy Task Force, just to name a few.
As a licensed and ordained minister, Rev. Jeffrey C. Chambless believes we are all called to be servants for the Lord and he has come to appreciate the blessing in serving because the Lord has given him a heart for His church and His people!
