Senior minister: jeremiah byers

Jeremiah received his physical education degree from MacMurray College in 2004. But feeling God’s call to ministry, he attended Lincoln Christian University, where he completed his Masters of Divinity degree in 2009. Jeremiah met his wife, Ashley, at MacMurray College and they were married in 2006. She holds a degree in deaf education but currently serves her family as a homemaking mom. They were blessed with the birth of a son, Abram, in August of 2008 and a daughter, Adah, in July of 2014. Jeremiah was ordained into the ministry in 2009 and has served as a Children & Family minister for the last 6 ½ years in Illinois. Jeremiah is wildly passionate about presenting the Gospel to any audience. God has gifted him with a thirst for knowledge, an ability to provide fresh perspective, and fervor for communicating uncompromising, Biblical truth.

Jeremiah loves competition; whether games, sports, or contests; enjoys experiencing new things, social interaction, making people laugh, being sarcastic, spending time with his family, and exercising to keep the fat at bay. He is a die-hard St. Louis Cardinals fan, and to his wife’s reluctance, loves watching football, playoff hockey, March madness and golf.


Josh received his call into Ministry at CIY MOVE conference in 2009, when he felt that the Lord was calling him to be an advocate for Young People, just as his Youth Minister had been an advocate for him. He attended Cincinnati Christian University (RIP) where he graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Biblical Studies and Youth Ministry in 2014. Josh has served in churches in Carmel IN, Cass City MI, and Terre Haute IN before coming to South Haven in 2021. Josh is passionate about sharing the gospel of grace with young people and helping them understand that they play a vital role in the Kingdom of God not just in the future but today. His desire is to make Church engaging and inspiring and a welcoming place for young people to feel at home. 

Josh is a fan of all things Indiana Hoosiers, the Colts, the Pacers, and the Cincinnati Reds. He has a passion for reading books, and loves to collect and play new board games. He loves an adventure or going to a new place, and will never say no to an invitation to eat a home cooked meal or get a free dinner and a chance to get to know your story.
