Jeremy and Keri began planting MainStreet Covenant Church in his hometown in the summer of 2010 and launched weekly services in January 2012. Read about the church planting journey here. Prior to church planting, Jeremy was the senior high youth pastor at Faith Covenant Church in Burnsville, MN (2007-2010).

In his free time, Jeremy enjoys reading, writing, guitar, golfing, browsing used book stores, chasing his kids around and hours on the lawn tractor mowing and listening to nerdy theological podcasts.
