My name is Jeremy. I have a lovely wife, Nardeen. We met at the church we were attending at the time, but it wasn’t until I saw her serving and loving people on a missions trip that she stole my heart in 2014. After almost 6 years of dating and engagement by long distance (four of those where she was in Australia earning her doctorate in dentistry), we got married in July of 2020. Happiest day of my life.

 

My BA in Religious Studies comes from Tyndale, where I studied for 4 years, as well as being elected Student Council President while there. Before that, I worked in a number of restaurants (I secretly love cooking) and even got my Network Administration Degree from Everest College.

 

I began attending Redemption London in August 2015, when I was hired on as the Youth Intern. Before then, I was the Youth Intern at Hope Bible Church Markham. God really taught me about His sovereignty in the move here – “The heart of a man plans his way, but the LORD establishes his steps.” – Proverbs 16:9

 

A lot of people ask me if youth ministry is what I want to do forever. Short answer – yes, if that’s what the Lord has for me!

 

I am thankful for this church. I love what God has been doing here, and that it’s nothing about what the leaders do – it’s about what God is doing. “Not to us, O LORD, not to us, but to your name give glory, for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness!” – Psalm 115:1
