About Jeremia

JeremiaR

I am the Pastor of Family Ministries, with direct leadership over those that join us in our ministries from birth through elementary school. I have great joy in shepherding all the volunteers that work with and impact these children and their families.

I grew up on a petting zoo, where I fell in love with llamas on the edge of the southern Alberta Mennonite mecca of Coaldale.  Since the petting zoo days, I met and have been married to my beautiful, impactful, inspiring, and stylish wife Anya since 2006, and love coming home and playing with our four wonderful children: Niko (2010), Adrianna (2012), Lillian (2015), and Evan (2020).

I have many loves but really most of them can be encompassed in two words: the outdoors.  I love being fit and spending time doing activities where I can adventure, explore, try difficult things and enjoy nature with others.  If you really knew me, you would know I love creation.

I have been privileged to attend some great educational institutions. I began my post-secondary endeavors at Rocky Mountain Bible College in 1999 and received my BSC at the University of Lethbridge in Agricultural Biotechnology in 2006. 

My hope for South Abbotsford Church and all the people that it reaches is to move hearts to Jesus Christ, providing a safe environment where children, families, attenders, and leaders can experience the life-changing love of Jesus Christ.
