Jeremy joined the Collaboratory in 2022 and lives in Elizabethtown with his wife Christi and two children. He earned a Bachelor of Science in Product Design and Development from the School of Engineering Technology at Eastern Michigan University. After graduation, Jeremy continued his work as a project manager in Reverse Engineering in the automotive industry, exercising his skills in lean process improvement and optimization. After several years in the automotive industry, Jeremy served in missions in Central America for one year, where his Spanish-speaking skills were refined, and his ministry career-path began. Over the next six years, Jeremy worked in student ministry in Christian camps and as a director in community youth center, where he discovered his passion to disciple students. To further his education in ministry, Jeremy pursued a Master’s in Christian Ministry with a focus of Discipleship from Liberty University. This unconventional path of engineering, disciple-making, and international missions has now led Jeremy to Messiah University, where he has come alongside the Collaboratory and its mission to serve college students and those in greater need around the world.
