In Pastor Jeremey’s Words

“I am passionate about helping others hear the still small voice of the One who ascribes them unsurpassable worth. I share Shepherd’s commitment to teaching the Bible in an authentic and practical way. I am drawn to a congregation focused on the small group as the core of daily Christian faith-life. I support a congregation being willing to try new things at a healthy pace, using its raw materials of talent, time, and resource to accomplish a God-given mission. I work with core team members to develop a level of trust and accountability that allows me to stay out of the details and focus on developing strengths. I believe a church that forms kingdom partnerships with other congregations, organizations, and civic bodies can open doors that would normally be shut to the Gospel.”
