Bio

Born August 18, 1951, Jeff Steinberg faced life with little hope - He has no arms and badly compromised legs. His mother did not learn about his disabilities until he was 17 months old; she did not see him until he was almost two years old - Jeffrey was in a Children's Shelter. He spent much of his early years in hospitals, including Shriners' Hospital for Crippled Children in Philadelphia, PA, where he underwent multiple orthopedic surgeries beginning at age 2; he was taught to walk with a leg brace on his right leg and he was fitted with his first prosthetic arm at age four. At age nine, Jeff was made a Ward of the State of Pennsylvania, and was placed into The Good Shepherd Home for the Physically Handicapped in Allentown, PA, where he lived and attended public school until he was 19 years old.

Through the love of a local Christian couple, Jeff, this young Jewish boy met his Messiah and discovered the truth that became the foundation of his life: "...I am fearfully and wonderfully made." (Psalm 139:14)

Jeff Steinberg is a Masterpiece In Progress - And he wants you to know it! He sees his disabilities as assets, not liabilities. He believes, "A Quitter never wins; and a Winner never quits!" Jeff is proof that, "God uses the least likely person to accomplish the most extraordinary things." Jeff is an Evangelist, author, a humorist and a singer. ." For more than 36 years he has crisscrossed the globe delivering his very special message that that a real handicap is "anything that keeps me from being or becoming all that God created me to be." In his distinctive style, using humor, song and the Scriptures Jeff shows us that each person is wonderfully created in "God's unique design," with potential they never even dreamed possible.

He has shared his message with audiences around the United States and internationally, performing for television, businesses, schools, churches, Conventions, Fund-Raisers and hospitals. Jeff was a co-host on a Television Special, called "The Best You Can Be...The Handicapped Hall of Fame."

Especially memorable was performing at a rally with Mother Teresa of Calcutta during her 1989 U.S. visit. Jeff has performed for the US Military in Germany, Churches in CANADA, the Bahamas & Barbados and he has Ministered to people with disabilities in COSTA RICA.
