Our Leadership

Jeff McKeever

Senior Pastor
E-mail Jeff McKeever

After coming to Christ at the age of 28, Jeff was personally discipled and theologically trained at Berean Baptist Church of Livonia. That training prepared him for many years of hands-on ministry experience as an elder and teacher at Berean. Some ministries that he particularly loved overseeing were training teachers, leading international mission trips, and organizing the Michigan Bi-Annual Men’s Conference – Fellowship in the Gospel. It was also at Berean that he met his best friend, closest-confidante and love of his life, Courtney, whom God gave to him in marriage in 1998. Together they have three cherished children – Gabrielle, Aundrea and Josiah, whom he loves to spend time with and disciple.

Early in 2013, Berean sent Jeff on a mission – along with Tom Nestor from Lakes Baptist Church – to revitalize ULBC. By May, the church had called Jeff to serve as its interim pastor and finally called him as the permanent senior pastor on February 23, 2014. Jeff is passionate about preaching and teaching the Bible in a way that showcases God as a Redeemer of sinners, is committed to discipleship of all shapes and sizes, and desires to lead the local church in greater involvement in community outreach and world-wide missions.

Jeff’s secular training includes a Bachelor of Arts in English (with Secondary Teaching Certification) from Wayne State University and a Doctor of Jurisprudence from University of Detroit School of Law.

Pierre Maceno

Lay Elder

Pierre was born and grew up in a Christian home in Haiti where his father, a pastor, would lead devotions every morning around the table. By God’s grace, Pierre professed Christ when he was 11 years old. He started serving in the local church at an early age as a Sunday school teacher and Youth Group leader until his family moved to Montreal.

Pierre continued to be a dedicated servant to the body of Christ in different ministries in Montreal, Paris, and Toronto, growing in the understanding of God’s Word under the leadership of faithful preachers.

For more than a decade in the U.S., he has been abundantly blessed by Charles Simeon Trust workshops, Together for the Gospel (T4G), The Gospel Coalition (TGC), and Fellowship in the Gospel conferences. It was through these spiritually rich events, that God burdened Pierre by reminding him of the spiritual famine in Haiti. It was this burden and many providential connections with the leadership of the churches there that he founded Levanjil ministry in 2010.

Now as an elder, God continues to use Pierre to train pastors abroad on expositional preaching and equip God’s people at ULBC.

Pierre studies Software Engineering at University of Quebec in Montreal and is now working for Siemens. He enjoys spending family time with his wife Sherri and his four children.

Dan Seidelman

Pastoral Assistant
E-mail Dan Seidelman

Dan was born and raised in Northwest Michigan, just outside of Traverse City. It was there God saved him and then, on a church mission trip to Youngstown, OH, called him to ministry.

After high school, Dan moved to Louisville, KY to be trained to serve the church at Boyce College. Desiring more training, he stayed in Louisville and completed a Master’s of Divinity at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary emphasizing biblical counseling. During his time in Kentucky, he met his amazing wife, Krissy, and they were married in 2015. He also discovered his passion for teaching, discipleship, and caring for others through ministering in his local church.

In the fall of 2017, Dan and Krissy moved to Commerce Township so Dan could start at ULBC as the pastoral assistant and work with the youth.

As far as hobbies go, Dan freely admits that he is one of the more boring people he knows. He enjoys most anything to do with food – especially cooking and eating it, reading, and music from well before his time.
