During those years, Jeremy played professional baseball with multiple teams, including the St. Louis Cardinals.
During his off season, he played basketball at San Diego Christian College where he studied biblical exposition. It is there that he met his wife Janie.

Jeremy’s passion is taking a grassroots ministry and equipping others, evangelizing, and seeing the ministry grow to reach the lost. It was in 2007 that Jeremy began to build teams to plant a new church called Seven San Diego Church.
On February 10, 2008, that church was launched in Otay Ranch, San Diego. The church grew to become a multisite church, where additional locations in Lakeside, East County San Diego. After 8 years of setting up and tearing down the church in community centers, schools, parks, and movie theaters, Seven San Diego found it’s home. After adopting Living Hope Church in Lakeside in 2015, the plan for a 12 month renovation project turned in to a 3 year renovation challenge. But seeing lives changed, marriages restored, addictions broken, the lost found, and the community served, was well worth the challenge.
