Jeremy began to follow Jesus when he was 8 years old. He admits his faith journey has had many twists and turns since then, but has found Jesus to always be faithful, even when Jeremy feels is faithless.
Jeremy came to Community of Hope in 1999 as a Grace College freshman looking for a church family. He became the Associate Pastor of Community of Hope in 2008 and was promoted to Senior Pastor in 2011.
He is passionate about teaching complicated ideas in a simple way for those who want God's power to invade their lives. I love to teach the Bible, counsel with people, and otherwise live life with people who genuinely want to go on a faith journey with others. He loves to hear people tell their stories, even when God's not done writing the conclusion. He also enjoys helping people discover how to make use of the gifts and abilities God has given them and use them for God's Kingdom.
Jeremy and his wife, Tonya, have been married since 2004. They live with their six kids: Emma, Isaiah, Hudson, Evie, Elliott, and Ruby. They like to be outside, play games together, travel, wrestle, read books, and laugh a lot.
