Jeremiah2Jeremiah is the Mcknight Crossings Children's Minister. He is passionate about being called into ministry—and more specifically children’s ministry. Jeremiah studied early childhood education and child development at Arkansas Tech University and utilizes that knowledge to cultivate a ministry that meets the needs of all children. His ministry philosophy is to create space to help others see the importance of children and their spiritual development as he empowers parents to feel confident in being their child’s spiritual champion.


If you can't find Jeremiah at the church, he's either at Chick-Fil-A, on a tennis court, or calling the HOGS! Contact Jeremiah at 314-962-7026.
