Jeremy’s ministry in Costa Rica included directing and teaching at Grace Bible Institute of Costa Rica. Jeremy was instrumental in assisting the Grace Church of Costa Rica in its efforts to reach into neighboring Nicaragua. From the beginning of his ministry, Jeremy has focused on equipping and empowering members of the church in Costa Rica to do the work of the ministry.
In October 2011, Dr. Sam Vinton announced his intention of retiring from his Executive Director position at GMI (no one really believes he will ever quit working). At that October meeting, the GMI board established a search committee tasked with identifying candidates to fill the role Dr. Sam was vacating. This task given to the search committee was a tall order. The committee engaged upon a careful, systematic and prayerful process which has culminated with this hiring.
Prior to serving with GMI in Costa Rica, Jeremy worked as Deputy Prosecuting Attorney in the Huntington County Prosecutor’s Office in Indiana, maintained his own law practice and served as youth pastor of Union Church, Huntington, Indiana. Jeremy’s wife, Andrea, has been instrumental in Jeremy’s work and ministry. She spends much of her time homeschooling their three children–Berea, Jason and Lydia.
The GMI Board covets your prayers for Jeremy, Andrea and their family as they transition from field service in Costa Rica to serving stateside in the GMI office. Jeremy will assume his duties as Executive Director beginning August 2012.
