While Jeremy loves the role God has given him in ministry, it is his role as a daddy that gives him his greatest joy. Jeremy and Mechelle have four children: Riley; Parker; Bailey; and Logan. They love to do things as a family and enjoy the smaller things in life, such as watching movies together or playing in the river, but are thrilled to be a part of God’s bigger picture as they serve as a family at FBC.
