Richard C. Jeffrey has composed church music for the past 25 years. In addition, he is a music director for a suburban Chicago parish, with four choirs under his directorship. During the weekdays he teaches music in Bolingbrook, Illinois. Richard has degrees in music form Elmhurst College in Elmhurst, Illinois. He often uses his own texts for his compositions as well as those written by Jaroslav Vajda, Timothy Dudley-Smith, and Thomas Troeger. Richard's music has recently been added to the WELS hymnal supplement and has been recorded on a WELS hymn sampler CD by Susan Ann Luenenberg, a Christian recording artist from New Ulm, Minnesota.

Richard lives in Lemont, Illinois with his wife, Susan and their two daughters. The Jeffrey women all play the flute; because of this fact, Richard often incorporates flute parts into his compositions. Richard's music has been published by five major publishing companies. His motto is "Soli Deo Gloria".
