Jeremy Pickens was born in Eastern Oregon and became a follower of Jesus at a young age. As he grew up in the church, the son of a pastor, his love for Jesus Christ and the local church grew. Jeremy pursued his love and passion for the Lord as he attended Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, IL. He also met his wife Jennie at Moody, and they married shortly after his graduation in 1999. God led Jeremy and Jennie to Grand Rapids, MI, where Jeremy served in an Associate Pastor role in a local church while completing his seminary training at Grand Rapids Theological Seminary. In 2004, Valley Community Church in Pleasanton, CA called Jeremy to be Pastor of Adult Ministries. During his years of service there, God deepened Jeremy’s love for the Bible and grew in him a passion for preaching and teaching, calling him to make preaching the primary focus of his ministry. In the summer of 2008, Jeremy answered that call to come serve as Senior Pastor of Good Shepherd. It is Jeremy’s desire to make the glory of God and the Gospel of Jesus Christ the center of his ministry and all the ministries of Good Shepherd.
