Jeremy Wolfe - Next Generation Pastor


Pastor Jeremy grew up in Rockmart, Georgia and later moved to Rome, Georgia where he attended Shorter College.  While at Shorter he met the love of his life, Laura Joy, who would after graduation, become his wife.  He received a BS in Economics and Biology from Shorter and began a career in finance that would last 15 years.  He believed from a young age that God wanted him to serve Him in full time vocational ministry.  In His wisdom, God lead Jeremy down a path that would eventually end at Luther Rice Seminary where at 41, he graduated with a Masters of Arts Degree in Ministerial Studies.  For as long as Jeremy can remember he has always worked with children in some capacity and am humbled by the opportunity he has to teach the youth and college students at Northside about the love of Christ.  Laura and Jeremy are honored to be the parents of Nathaniel and Parker who love the Lord and who strive to do His will.  They are excited to see what God has in store for the Next Generation at Northside. Jeremy's passion is to create disciples for Christ who will tell others about the saving grace that is found in Jesus.
