Columbus First Christian Baptist
Dr. Jeremy Kamer
For most of his life, Jeremy spent a majority of the time with his family traveling from church to church ministering. Singing God's praises with a Southern Gospel/Bluegrass style. He began preaching God's word at the age of 16. In 2007 he moved from evangelistic preaching and singing to a full-time pastorate at CFCB. He also serves as a commissioner on the Columbus Far South Side Area Commission.
While pastoring, he was able to couple his experience with education. He finished his bachelor's degree from Ohio Christian University, a Master of Arts in Theology from Wesley Biblical Seminary, a Master of Divinity from Wesley Seminary, and a Doctorate of Theology from Andersonville Seminary. He is now completing a Ph.D. in Organizational leadership from Indiana Wesleyan University.
Jeremy and his wife, Abbie, are all about ministry. Abbie is a third-grade teacher at New Hope Christian Academy in Circleville, Ohio. Together they have a daughter, Josie, and son, Ezra. Find out more about pastor Jeremy here.
