As a 5th grader, Jeremy, along with his family, moved to Mustang and joined First Baptist. After graduating from Mustang High School, Jeremy was more focused on his life and career than the church or the things of the Lord. In 2011 Jeremy married Chelsea and it became very obvious that something was missing from his life. Although he was raised in the church and even baptized as a child, Jeremy came to realize that he had never given his life to Christ. In 2012, Jeremy was saved from sin and death by the work of Jesus on the cross and it altered the course and direction of his life.
Jeremy served as the Family and Men's Ministry Associate for Oklahoma Baptists and as a Worship Pastor in Albany, New York, and Southeastern Oklahoma. Jeremy returned to Mustang in 2022 as Associate Pastor.
Family: He married Chelsea (Keenen) on 9/3/2011. They have three children- Maverick, Calvin, and Lottie Beth.
Education: Jeremy graduated from Mid-America Christian University in Oklahoma City, OK with a Bachelor of Science in Christian Ministries in May of 2014. Currently he is pursuing a Masters of Theological Studies from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kansas City, MO.
