    DIRECTOR

    Jeremy is a Child of God, Husband to Melissa, father to Jake, Lydia and Sophie and Alpha Pack leader to “Diesel”.  Jeremy currently serves the Eastern Ontario District Office as the Specialized Ministries & Youth Director.  He is a committed Toronto Maple Leaf fan and bleeds blue and white.  Besides hockey, boating, fishing, home renos and hanging with his fam, his other passion is geeking out on bottled root beer with the hope of one day perfecting his own brew.  But his greatest passion after God and family is to raise up and develop the next generation of leaders who listen for God and do what He says!  Jeremy and his family currently reside in Peterborough, ON.
